The Ion uses a passive alarm system that arm when you exit the vehicle and lock the doors with the keyless remote. If at any time the doors are opened without the use of the remote or the keys the alarm will sound. <a href="http://www.fobdii.com/brand-5-Launch-X431.html" target="_blank">Launch X431</a> This is to prevent the theft of contents within the car.<br />
<br />
The PASSKEY system uses an exciter coil located inside the key lock tumbler that detects the correct key being inserted and turned to start the car. <a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-120-autel-maxisys-ms906.html" target="_blank">AUTEL MaxiSYS MS906</a> When the correct key is turned in the cylinder it sends a signal to the computer which will then allow the fuel injectors to function. If the wrong key is used or if the system is tampered with, the car will not start.<br />
<br />
Resetting the PASSKEY can be necessary at times if the programming in the module becomes corrupted or if a new key and key cylinder are installed. To reset the system, get in the car and shut the door. Turn the key on to the &quot;Run&quot; position without cranking the engine. Leave the key there for exactly 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position without removing it and back to &quot;Run&quot; for 10 more minutes. <a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-270-digimaster-3-digimaster-iii-original-odometer-correction-master.html" target="_blank">Yanhua Digimaster 3</a> Turn the key off again and back to &quot;Run&quot; for 10 minutes a third. Turn the key off and then attempt to start the engine. This is known as the &quot;30-minute relearn.&quot;

The security System on a Vehicles uses a proximity sensor and a Vehicles immobilizer switch to help prevent unauthorized entry and theft of the car.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/brand-5-Launch-X431.html" target="_blank">Launch X431</a> When the alarm is tripped, the headlights will flash and the horn will sound. If the alarm has been tripped in error, you will need to reset the security system to silence the alarm. Depending on the year of the Vehicles the alarm will stop and reset automatically on its own after one to three minutes.<br />
<br />
Insert your key into the driver side door or unlock the doors with your keyless entry remote. This will disarm the security system and allow you to open the door.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-90-bmw-icom-a3-pro-professional-diagnostic-tool-wifi-function.html" target="_blank">BMW ICOM A3 Pro+</a> The light on the radio display will go off -- letting you know that the system is no longer armed.<br />
<br />
To reset the security system, insert the key into the ignition. Open the trunk or any door of the Impala. Switch the lock to the &quot;lock&quot; position. Remove the key from the ignition.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-2-gm-tech2-in-carton-package.html" target="_blank">GM tech 2</a> The light on the radio display will flash quickly; this signals that the system is resetting.<br />
<br />
Close the door or trunk. The light on the radio display will flash slowly. The system is now reset and ready for use.

Pull the broken mirror out of the mirror assembly.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/xtool-hd900-heavy-duty-truck-code-reader.html" target="_blank">XTOOL HD900</a> The mirror attaches to the assembly with four metal tabs. If the mirror is still intact, pull the whole thing out with your fingers. If the mirror cracked into pieces, a rare occurrence, pull all of the old mirror pieces out of the assembly.<br />
<br />
Place the new mirror into the assembly with the reflective side facing outward.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/obdstar-x300m-odometer.html" target="_blank">OBDSTAR X300M</a> The metal tabs on the back of the mirror line up with a plastic ball located inside of the assembly. The mirror pivots on this ball. Push on the face of the mirror with the palm of your hand until you hear it snap into place.<br />
<br />
Rotate the mirror in all directions.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/ucandas-vdm2-wifi-android-automotive-scanner.html" target="_blank">UCANDAS VDM2</a> This allows you to ensure the mirror is free of any obstructions inside the assembly.

Turn the Infiniti off if it is running.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-2-gm-tech2-in-carton-package.html" target="_blank">GM tech 2</a> Leave the key in the ignition.<br />
<br />
Look under the dash and steering wheel and locate the black On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) outlet.<br />
<br />
Connect an OBD scanner to this port, then turn the scanner on.<br />
<br />
Turn the key in ignition to will start the Infiniti's diagnostic system.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-90-bmw-icom-a3-pro-professional-diagnostic-tool-wifi-function.html" target="_blank">BMW ICOM A3 Pro+</a> It may take a few seconds before data flows from the Infiniti to the scanner.<br />
<br />
Note the fault code, then clear the system once the fault code shows on the scanner's screen. While the orientation and configuration of scanners vary by brand, there should be a dedicated &quot;Clear&quot; button.<br />
<br />
Disconnect the scanner, then turn the Infiniti off.<br />
<br />
Turn the Infiniti back on and look at the instrument panel.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/brand-5-Launch-X431.html" target="_blank">Launch X431</a> The &quot;Service Engine&quot; light should be dark.

Resetting the Light<br />
<br />
Attach the code scanner to the hookup located underneath the dashboard on the driver's side of the Element.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/ucandas-vdm2-wifi-android-automotive-scanner.html" target="_blank">UCANDAS VDM2</a> Start the vehicle and turn on the scanner and let it read the error code. Write down the error code.<br />
<br />
Use the reset function on the scanner to tell the car's computer to turn of the light.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/obdstar-x300m-odometer.html" target="_blank">OBDSTAR X300M</a> Unplug the scanner and turn off the engine. Wait one to two minutes and then start the car again. The light should remain off.<br />
<br />
Turn on the engine of your Honda Element once again. If the light comes back on, this signifies a critical error and the car should be taken in for service right away.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/xtool-hd900-heavy-duty-truck-code-reader.html" target="_blank">XTOOL HD900</a> If not, you can ask a local auto shop or mechanic to look up what the error code means. Then, decide if you want to fix it now or later.

The PCM, power train control module, within your Vehicles manages the engine control system. Replacement of the PCM is not very common,<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/original-launch-m-diag-plus-obdii-scanner.html" target="_blank">Launch M-Diag Lite Plus</a> but when your Vehicles is diagnosed with a failing PCM it's important to replace it immediately to ensure the Vehicles continues to operate. The PCM is a silver box with large electrical connectors coming from it. You can replace the PCM without the help of a mechanic, but you must first purchase the correct PCM Vehicles your car. <br />
<br />
Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery with a wrench or socket and ratchet. Isolate the cable end so that it cannot fall back against the battery.<br />
<br />
Locate the powertrain control module or PCM on the firewall of the Jeep. Remove the three plastic covers from the 32-pin connectors on the face of the PCM.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/obdstar-x300m-odometer.html" target="_blank">OBDSTAR X300M</a> The covers snap onto the connectors and come off the same way.<br />
<br />
Unplug the three 32-pin connectors from the PCM, being careful not to bend the pins or damage the plug. The connectors will pull straight out from the PCM but you may need to wiggle the connector a little as they are a tight fit.<br />
<br />
Remove the three mounting bolts that anchor the PCM to the firewall of the Jeep with a socket and ratchet. Position the new PCM on the fire wall and use the mounting bolts from the old one to secure it. Tighten the bolts to 35 inch-pounds with a torque wrench.<br />
<br />
Carefully install the three 32-pin connectors into the plugs on the face of the PCM.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/xtool-hd900-heavy-duty-truck-code-reader.html" target="_blank">XTOOL HD900</a> Install the connector caps by snapping them in place.<br />
<br />
Reinstall the negative battery cable onto the battery and tighten the retaining bolt with a wrench or socket and ratchet. A DRB scan tool must be connected to the PCM after installation to set the vehicle identification number and the original mileage of the Jeep so the odometer will read correctly.

Today's complex automotive engines need information regarding temperature, fuel consumption, speed and pollution to operate properly.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/xtool-hd900-heavy-duty-truck-code-reader.html" target="_blank">XTOOL HD900</a> The instrument making these decisions, the Engine Control Module (ECM), needs power to operate the same as any other electronic device.<br />
<br />
The ECM<br />
<br />
The Engine Control Module in any automobile receives signals from various sensors throughout the vehicle to monitor engine performance.<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/obdstar-x300m-odometer.html" target="_blank">OBDSTAR X300M</a> If a threatening situation occurs, the ECM sends a signal to operate a &quot;Check Engine&quot; light.<br />
The ECM Wiring<br />
<br />
Wiring comes to the ECM from various sensors but also sends signals to other devices. The fuel pump, along with several other critical parts, operates on signals from the ECM.<br />
The ECM Wiring Relay<br />
<br />
The ECM wiring relay provides battery voltage to the main input wire to the ECM,<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/ucandas-vdm2-wifi-android-automotive-scanner.html" target="_blank">UCANDAS VDM2</a> just like the power cord to a computer. The relay closes when you turn on the ignition.

Your Chevrolet Monte Carlo may be experiencing engine problems, such as stalling, misfiring, knocking or poor acceleration. Troubleshooting the Monte Carlo's engine can mean searching under the hood, but for every symptom, there can be a couple of causes,<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/xtool-hd900-heavy-duty-truck-code-reader.html" target="_blank">XTOOL HD900</a> and some parts of the engine can be hard to access. The Monte Carlo has an On-Board Diagnostic system. Using it can significantly cut down on the time spent troubleshooting the problem. However, how you use the OBD system depends on when your Monte Carlo was manufactured.<br />
XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 <br />
<br />
1996 and After<br />
Open the driver's side door and locate the Monte Carlo's Data Link Connection. The DLC is the gateway to all of the Monte Carlo' s diagnostic system. It will either be black or gray in color and has 16 receiving slots. It will be in the general vicinity of the left kick panel beneath the dash.<br />
<br />
Hook an OBD-II scanner into the DLC. Turn the scanner on if the model you have does not come on automatically.<br />
<br />
Insert your key into the Monte Carlo's ignition and turn it to the &quot;Accessories&quot; position. Some scanners may require that the engine is cranked.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/brand-8-XTOOL.html" target="_blank">XTOOL</a> If you own one of these scanners, crank the engine.<br />
XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 <br />
<br />
Press the appropriate button to retrieve the OBD-II codes. You will have to do this if your brand of scanner does not automatically scan the system upon sensing a connection with the Monte Carlo's computer.<br />
<br />
Consult the scanner's manual for OBD-II coding and code definitions. It will likely contain the generic OBD-II codes universal to all post-1996 vehicles. General Motors has supplemental codes, which you will need to look up online. Your Monte Carlo's manual will not have these codes.<br />
<br />
Make a list of the codes and prioritize them. All trouble codes should be investigated first. These have occurred more frequently, causing the &quot;Check Engine&quot; light on the Monte Carlo's dash to illuminate. Next, write down all of the pending codes.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-90-bmw-icom-a3-pro-professional-diagnostic-tool-wifi-function.html" target="_blank">BMW ICOM A3 Pro+</a> These are problems that have occurred but not with the frequency of trouble codes. These codes could be trending toward trouble status.<br />
<br />
Turn off the Monte Carlo and remove the key from the ignition. Unplug the scanner from the DLC outlet. Open the engine compartment, and use your list of codes and definitions for further troubleshooting.<br />
<br />
1984 Through 1995<br />
Locate the Assembly Line Diagnostic Link. The ALDL is a 12-slot outlet located beneath the steering column.<br />
<br />
Bend a paperclip into a &quot;U.&quot; Locate two slots at the end of the ALDL's top row of slots. These are next to each other to the far right. Insert the ends of the &quot;U&quot; into the two slots.<br />
<br />
Insert your key into the Monte Carlo's ignition and turn it on but do not crank the engine.<br />
XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 XTOOL HD900 BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ XPROG-M V5.70 <br />
<br />
Count how many times the &quot;Check Engine&quot; light flashes. General Motors' flash codes are two-digit numbers. The first number will be a long flash, and the second will be a short flash. There will be a pause between the end of a code and the beginning of another.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-69-xprog-m-v570-ecu-programmer-with-usb-dongle.html" target="_blank">XPROG-M V5.70</a> Code 12 will appear at the beginning of the flashing sequence. Ignore this as this is common and does not correspond with an engine problem.<br />
<br />
Write the code numbers down. Consult an online list of GM flash codes for definitions. Turn the Monte Carlo off. Open the engine compartment and use the list to focus your investigation.

Correct ignition timing specifications are crucial for engine performance. Timing affects many variables, including fuel economy and engine longevity.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/brand-3-Autel.html" target="_blank">Autel MaxiDas</a> The Ford Ranger is one of the most popular lightweight trucks produced by Ford Motor Company, and its engineers have determined precise timing specifications so that you can benefit from your Ranger as much as possible.<br />
BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE <br />
<br />
Measuring Ignition Timing<br />
Use a timing light to check your timing while the engine is running. An inductive trigger signal will be picked up from one of the spark plug cables, causing the light to turn on and freeze while the spark plug fires. This helps to determine the crankshaft position.<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-254-2014d-vida-dice-scanner-for-volvo.html" target="_blank">VOLVO VIDA DICE</a> Use this information for making timing adjustments because the rate at which the crankshaft is spinning and is processed by the distributor controls the ignition (i.e., controls when the spark should occur).<br />
<br />
Timing Specifications<br />
Ideally, the time at which the mixture should be fully burnt on a Ford Ranger is approximately six degrees at top dead center (ATDC) at 800 rpm for 1985 to 1988 models with carbureted 2.0L engines and 10 degrees for 1985 to 1990 models with 2.3L engines with fuel injection.<br />
BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE BMW ICOM A3 Pro+ Autel MaxiDas VOLVO VIDA DICE <br />
<br />
After 1990 the Ranger went to a distributorless system that uses the Engine Control Unit (ECU) to control the timing. Since the computer adjusts the timing,<a href="http://www.fobdii.com/wholesale-90-bmw-icom-a3-pro-professional-diagnostic-tool-wifi-function.html" target="_blank">BMW ICOM A3 Pro+</a> you don't need to worry about the timing adjustment.<br />
<br />
Exceptions<br />
When the engine is operating at high altitude, reset the timing to 14 degrees.

GMC vehicles are produced by General Motors. GMC specializes in sport utility vehicles, trucks and vans. If your GMC vehicle sets off a fault code, also known as a check-engine code, resetting the code after the repair has been made is a simple process. Once you locate the battery,<a href="http://www.obd-tool.net/launch-x431-easydiag-plus-20-obdii-code-reader.html" target="_blank">Launch EasyDiag Plus 2.0</a> the method for clearing the code is the same, regardless of the year, make or model of GMC vehicle. Fault codes can be set off in a vehicle for a variety of reasons, ranging from a loose gas cap to a major mechanical problem.<br />

<br />
Put the adjustable wrench on the bolt that holds the negative battery clamp on the negative battery terminal. Loosen the bolt, and remove the clamp.<br />
<br />
Hold the negative battery clamp and wait for one minute. This waiting period will clear the computer's codes.<br />
<br />
Place the clamp back on the negative terminal, and tighten it with the wrench. The clamp should have a snug fit and should not wiggle from side to side.<br />
<br />
