Check wallet light on.

Just had the baby into CAA Auto care shop yesterday. Check wallet light came on two weeks ago, so booked the truck in, then the light went out, cancelled appointment. Then the light went on again, booked her in, then on the way in, the light went out again. The tech plugged the code reader in and there was nothing there, not even in the history. Next day the light came on again, took her in on the way home from work and code P0031 came up O2 sensor bank 1 voltage low. 2 hours and $260.00 CDN + tax to fix. He had to disconnect the front drive shaft to access.
I think your list is correct on that one dhh3. By the way, there are 4 x O2 sensors and all the same part #.

This is good to know! I finally did something right.

I just looked under my Nitro. There is a small catalytic converter on each bank of cylinders. I wonder if there are 2 O2 sensors on each side, one in front of and one behind each catalytic converter? It was hard to see, but the drivers side converter is really close to the front drive shaft.

Engine Light Code Errors

so i just bought a 2010 dodge nitro shock edition all white(pics coming soon) and literally ten min after driving off the lot the engine light comes on. i plugged a scanner and got a p0300 for random misfire. i wasn't worried since im still under factory warranty. but the day i go to bring it in to service i start it up and the mil light goes away and drives fine, before i felt the misfire a lil bit coming off a complete stop. then a week goes by and the light comes on again, i plug up the scanner same code, now i dont erase it just turned off the car and unplugged scanner, start it up again and like magic this light is off. now this is really annoying as all i want to do is just take this car in to the dealer and not have them hit me with a diag fee since the light is not on and wondering if anyone has experienced this problem. imma mechanic and know how the dealers work so thats why i'm hoping this light could pop on soon and i can just tow it straight there so they can see i'm not crazy. but yeah if anyone has experinced this please help!!! lol by the way i'm new to this site i also have an 82 toyota supra and have a account on celica supra.com

Welcome!

Just don't erase your code next time, but I would think it could be viewed in history, but maybe not. I did the same thing but they found other error codes that I didn't know were in there with my checker. Good Luck!

Welcome to the forum. I am sorry to see that you had to join under these circumstances.
As Rick said, when the light come on, bring it to the dealer, and when you get there, do not shut off the engine. Sometimes, these sytems seem to "self test" and erase the codes if the system thinks it is fixed. I have had this happen to me!
Good luck.

ok so heres a lil update. sry i still dont have pics its probably because i still dont have my car and this problem is persisting. so got the light on brought it straight to the dealer as soon as it came on. they checked it, drove it, erased it, and said it was a past code which i responded that thats bs because this code is on now and has been coming on and off. i was told to bring it back when it comes on. light comes on three days later, bring it in, let me know the next day that all they found was one faulty spark plug and ran fuel injection cleaner thru it thinking maybe i got bad gas which is also bs because 5 min after purchasing the car it came on. they told me they drove it all day tried getting the light back on nothing that it was all good to go, i drive 20 min home light comes on as soon as i park it with it smoking this time. i go back to the dealer furious at this point and not once could they even get me a rental or loaner, since i work at a nissan dealer my manager was nice enough to let me use a 2012 maxima in the mean time which i might trade the truck in for. get a call from the dealer saying they contacted chrysler and they recommended a deep combustion cleaning which i never even heard of but what they had to do was remove the cylinder head of bank 2 and put this solvent in clean off everything and reinstall head. again no fix light comes on as soon as i leave the dealer!!! now its in the shop as i'm typing this and got a call yesterday morning that now chrysler recommends to replace that whole cylinder head!!! this is just rediculous. i told them from day one maybe you should try replacing all the coils, but no dodge is retarded and this is the solution they come up with. by the way this dealer is sherman dodge in skokie illinois i totally would rec to stay away from these a-holes! thru out all this everytime i had to find out something its because i had to call up there only twice did i get a call and that was to keep the car over night every other time i had to call not even a call to say my cars ready, i call and this guy nick c. in service is like " oh yea your car is ready and everythings fine" when obviously its not i'm now about to write to the service manager and say how rediculous this has become and a major let down that i'm not treated like a customer because of my age. i'm 25 and these guys are acting as if i'm a kid and this is not my car. just because of my looks i shouldnt be judge on that when i bring my personal car in for service.
