Intrepid Check Fault Codes - Posted: 09-22-2004, 05:46 PM
Checking Fault Codes
To obtain fault codes using the MIL (Check Engine Light):
1. Cycle ignition key to ON, OFF, ON, OFF, ON within 5 second (do not actually crank engine!!)
2. Count the number of times the MIL on the instrument panel flashes on and off. The number of flashes represents the trouble code. There is a slight pause between the flashes representing the first and second digits of the code. Longer pauses seperate the individual two digit trouble code.
Example: Lamp flashes 4 times, pauses, then flashes 6 more times. This is an indicates a DTC of 46.
3. Lamp will always flash 55 at the end of the test. This signals the end of the test.

As I understand this the proceedure you mentioned it only works up to and including 1996 models. I guess there was a change in the OBD II in '97 that deleted this function. Is this true or does the key flip function still trigger the codes on the check engine light on models built after 1996?
Checking codes on 96 and later models - Posted: 01-31-2005, 07:52 PM
I checked mine today, it does work on newer models, I have a 2001 Intrepid ES. Nice to know I can locate the codes myself without having to take the car in to the dealership and get ripped off everytime with a 90$ fee.
Found this site tonite, glad to be here.

Quick question, I have a fault code of 12, battery has been disconnected uring the last 50 starts. How do I clear the check engine light then.
Thank you in advance for your reply.
Posted: 02-08-2005, 09:32 AM
As I understand the computer on these cars code 12 should not turn on the check engine light. Is code 12 the only code you are getting? The codes can be cleared with a scan tool or by disconnecting the battery ( so much for code 12) and with the cables disconnected touch the cables together to dissipate any stored current. This should wipe the computer (and all your presets on the radio......nuts!). Then run the car for a bit and if the check engine light comes back on again I would have the car scanned by someone with a scan tool or take it to a shop. There are some codes that will not display with the key flip feature. If you have access to a Haynes manual or similar book I would also consult it. Good luck..........................Pete
Code 1684 In 99 Dodge Intrepid - Posted: 02-08-2005, 09:38 PM
I had a 1684 code in my 99 dodge intrepid,i changed the battery and i checked again i stilll have the same code,whats should i do to clear it.
even when i changed the battery the radio stations are still in the memory could it be that the code is still in the memory.
Posted: 02-08-2005, 09:43 PM
Try disconnecting the battery cables and touching them together after they are both free from the battery and then reconnecting them to the battery. This shoud erase the computers memory as well as the radio....................Pete

Thanks it worked, I don't have the check engine light, and I drove my Intrepid for awhile and so far no check engine light. An auto parts store that does free code scanning had said it was my oxygen sensor (again), thought when checking the flashing check engine lights I only came out with error codes 12 and 13, now they're gone. I just learned about turning the ignition key three times to get the flashing code, I didn't know this car had such a feature. I took my wife's Kia to same auto parts store with a check engine light, they said it was her anti theft system, the car does not have one, turns out to have been a clogged air filter. Are those code scanners that good?
Posted: 02-09-2005, 02:16 PM
Yes they can be. You can got to a web sight www.obddiagnostics.com. They have an interface box for about $80.00 and a free program you can down load to turn your pc or lap top into a code scanner and engine monitor. It is pretty effective and will work with some pretty unsophisticated computers. The set up works on 1996 and newer cars as they have the OBD II setup. It will work on your KIA as well as your Dodge. It isnt as sophisticated as a true scan tool but for the do it your self type it is a great tool to have...............................Pete

Okay - I got a bunch of codes
12 (We know this is not a big proble), 31, 51 & 45.
What should I do ???
Nevermind - Posted: 03-10-2005, 11:19 AM
Forget my last question.
I cleared the computer using the method described in this thread and drove around and guess what no more check engine light. I guess when I had my engine put in a few weeks ago they forgot to do this.
Thanks for all the tips.

I ran across these tips on my Avenger Owners group page (http://www.asog.net/phpBB21/portal.php). There a list of all the mopar codes and this trick does work for newer rides. I just bought an '02 Intrepid last week and it worked.
I am the light. What you seek is fire!

I found this via google and there are plenty others to look through. I suggest you compare a few of the places first before getting into one. obd-onboarddiagnostics(dot)com/OBD-software.htm. I had previously thought about doing this myself w/an older laptop of mine but funds were a little tight. May have to look into it again. Hope it helps.
