Default Check Engine Light on

Hey all, I went out on lunch started my car up and everything was fine. My car has a Escort radar system and the speaker was unhooked so i had to pull the gauges to get to the wires. I plug my gauges back in and whammo my check engine light is on. Any idea as to why this would happen or how can i check to see what code its throwing...

Ok so both of them have something to do with the calibration of the cluster or a memory error in the cluster I wonder if I just unplugg the battery and reset the comp if that would help.

You didn't find the right error codes - you got console codes, not engine codes.
You didn't do the "key trick"...

The first code is legit.

PU0155 - NO BUS

Basically the car can't communicate with your gauge cluster. Quick Googling suggests that you'd need to take it to a dealer or find someone with a DRB3 scan tool to reset the cluster.

Thanks for looking it up. I checked with a friend at a dealer he said if you unplug the cluster while the car is on and then plug it back in it will happen with those codes. He told me to pull the negative cable and wait 10 min, So I did and light is off.

Yep, that'd probably do it. Hopefully it stays off.


Edit: I didn't realize that you had unplugged/plugged in the cluster while the car was on-- probably would've been a lot easier to diagnose had I not assumed the car was off. :P
