Engine light

Asked by Sep 10, 2017 at 08:24 PM about the 1996 Ford Crown Victoria 4 Dr S Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

It seems like every time it's due for emissions my 1996
Ford Crown Victorias engine light comes on. It's off all year
round until this time of the year. I bought a scanner code
but I don't know which cold it is it comes up with too many
of them that's listed on the paper how do I know which one
it is cuz it says to check all of them if any of the codes pop
up there has to be one certain code. Every year I was taking
it to the Ford Company and they would tell me to drive 100
miles and then call them when I was done and they would
set the cold after I was done and charged me the money to
do it I mean she punched the code in before I even was out
of my car so apparently there's one certain code.
Could you please help me with this cuz I cannot afford the
$40 this year I'm on supplemental security

Take it to any auto parts store, like Autozone, Advance, or O'Rielly, they will do a free diagnostic trouble code (DTC) scan. Post the code here or google it for what it means for further help. It's possible you have multiple codes so post them all.
