check engine light, intermiitant tach, cant scan codes


Recommended Posts

On the way home today, CHECK ENGINE light came on. Then a experienced a surging idle and intermitant tach signal. Plugged in code reader (Actron CP9180 and it can not establish communications with vehicle. I stopped by and tried another code reader and got the same results.What next?

I had the idle issue in my truck for a couple of weeks off and on it finally threw a crank sensor code. I replaced it and problem has deceased since. When it my truck was idling at a stop light it would cut out for a split second and the tach would quit registering. Something maybe you could look at before you change out the expensive pcm.
