I have new QP Sport, 6500KM. Engine light just came on. Is there an OBDII scan tool available which will read the codes, and if so, is there a key for the codes! Lastly, would I be able to reset the light myself in case all it was was the gas cap was loose. I assume that if it were something else then the light would come back on and then I would go to dealer. I have seen similar threads, but they seem to be regarding older vehicles.

Thanks in advance.

Innova equuis 3110 or higher will read maser codes and allow you to reset...most likely a loose gas cap threw an EGR code

The Innova unit translates the codes into the problem as well (ex. 22304 Misfire in Cyl X) so you dont need a translation key

Innova scanners are about 125 shipped on ebay

Scanner must have OBDII and CAN abilities

Thanks for the info. I had read about this tool in other posts, but I didn't know if it worked for the newer 2007 QP. What does the CAN refer to? Is there any point in getting a higher model number, e.g. the 3140?

Craig

I Googled the product name and found a web site with tech data. There were four models offered, I ended up buying one for about $170.00.

CAN data transfer protocol commonly found in cars.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Controller_Area_Network

ODBII (On Board Diagnostic) is yet another data transfer protocol (ODB is the first gen)...anyhow, it's a standard required by the US EPA...not car specific. Not to mention model specific. Though, some auto manufactures don't conform to SAE standards...

Well, based on advice, purchased an Equus scan tool. Of course, while I was in the store picking it up, when I came out to the car, the light no longer was on! Anyway, I found the OBD port for the QP on the far right on the drivers side (Panel you need to remove is actually marked by stitching "OBD" into the leather.)

Does the following mean anything to anyone, and in particular, do I need to act on int?

Am in Canada and use 91 octane, usually Sunoco. Have the option of Shell 94. Is there much difference between companies for a given octane level?

Thanks

For a given octane level no but for 91 to 94 there is a big difference...My Coupe HATES 91 and I have recieved similar engine codes because of it...the short term fuel trim on bank one not being in line with the other trim specs shows that something is up either with the fuel or the fuel delivery system...since she is brand new I would lean toward fuel first.

Will try 94 for a few tanks and see if it recurs. Do you think I can safely erase the code or should I leave it for dealer to check out when I take it in for first service?

go ahead and clear it...that way if it happens again you will know that it is a new error code not the one you have already checked

interesting that the code popped at such a low RPM the only times I have recieved that message was along with a misfire code on my CC never just by itself

p000a

I am just having the same code (p000a) randomly popping out, so I was wondering if you ever resolved that issue. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

07 QP Sport GT auto - 80K miles - 93oct - 2K-3K mile oil changes - Daily driver

I went into a store yesterday, car was running perfect.. When I came out and started it, it made the usual variator noise i have, but then started to run HORRIBLE right away ... shaking, "sounded" like it was trying to stall but it wasn't. I clearly hear and feel it driving under 20mph.. after that the throttle smooths out as if nothing is wrong.. but when i come down to 20 mph again its there. At a red light it sounds the worst.

Turned car off and back on couple times, disco the battery overnight etc. No fix.

Strange part is, I'm not getting a CEL at all. Nothing negative on dash at all. But I did plug in the OBD anyway just to see and got this.. Stored: P000A Engine Position System Performance - Bank 1

I will be changing spark plugs soon, but I doubt that's the problem. For some time I've been getting code P0128 which is the thermostat I believe. But that code pops up every month or so and I clear it. I honestly thought the variator issue finally caught up with me and was starting to kill the car. Any advice?

P000A is a warning about your Cam Variators having a slow response, we wrote a bit about it on your other thread, hope it offers you some help!

Best Regards,
