Error Codes, etc.

Have you connected a reader to your car? I have permanent error codes, but no error code icons, e.g., check engine, wrench, etc.

Error code icons would appear after washing the car. The dealer washed it three times, thoroughly hosed it down, and was unable to generate any error codes. The tech put some dielectric sealant on some of the connectors - apparently fixing my problem.

The explanation given for the error codes is:

As for the codes, those are stored history codes; not active failures. Codes are from misfires; mostly commonly at cold start ups. Ben consulted with factory and everything cleared with them. When we hook up the factory computer, it stores a fault memory. None of the codes in the fault memory are active or present. They are readable; but not active failures.

Will have to see if the folks at E-Check will accept "stored history codes" as OK.

Glad to see your problem was solved.

Those historic codes are to support problem solving when there is a current active fault. Misfires and such can happen under numerous conditions, so by themselves they wouldn't be a problem. But they would be an indication if ssomething else is going wrong (such as an engine that dies when cold or wet).
