Re: V8 engine code
In a message dated 9/2/98 4:48:39 PM Eastern Daylight Time,
<< I've currently got a V8 for extended test drive- whenever I start
the car the airbag light stays on a hair longer than any other check lights,
and the center display screen (the trip computer) flashes 30 until I hit one
of the display scroll buttons. What does this mean?
Well, nate, it's not unusual for the airbag light to stay on a little longer
than the other warning lights- usually 5-10 seconds. Otherwise, check if
recall was recently done. Many have reported that the light stays on longer
after this was done (haven't had mine in for the recall work yet ;-).
As to the 30 flashing, that's the indicator for the fuel-up reminder. It's
supposed to start blinking when you've made it to "reserve", but often it does
so well before this. After that, the fuel pump indicator comes on in yellow.
