By using an OBDII scan tool, you can read and erase the errors the vehicle’s engine has sent. It is helpful to have an OBD2 scan tool when your engine light comes on. However, what if you don’t have a scanner and you need to know the code? My recent discovery about Dodge cars and, cranes, trucks shows that many vehicles have a diagnostic system that will show the code.
To participate, all you need to do is cycle the key a total of three times.
How to read Dodge check engine light without a code reader
- Cycle the Key from OFF to ON three times to read dodge check engine light.
- During the last cycle, the key should be in the ON position.
- On the dashboard, the odometer LCD window will display the code.
- It will only be visible for a moment and then flash P-done before going back to normal.
If you Google the code number and the Dodge make/model, the problem with your car or truck will be found. In case you miss the code, simply repeat the steps because it flashes so quickly. I hope this helps if you have a Dodge and don’t have an OBD2 scan tool to identify the code.
