penguin > hi, i have this problem too (9318)

If you are getting this code from the odometer test mode, as opposed to a OBD-II code reader, and there are no other symptoms, ignore it -- the odo test mode codes are extremely unreliable.

At a quick guess, either your battery is bad, your alternator isn't charging your battery, the voltage regulator isn't doing it's job - or you're missing a belt, like my son was the other day, when his battery wasn't charging! Have you got the repair book from any auto store for your vehicle? It will tell you how to check your charging system. Some auto stores, like Auto Zone, will sometimes go out to your car and test things.
And it's stating the obvious - but our cars run dependent on the computer. No electrical power (via alternator or battery) means the computer doesn't run - which means your engine can't run.
hi, i have this problem too (9318), and i am very worried about that becasuse my battery and alternator are new, i checked all the wires too many time and it is ok, and this dtc code is still appearing, some body told me couldbe a problem with the pcm but i really dont know, if you have more information about this code causes (9318) please help me

jaimz i know this is an old thread, but don't use the ODBII codes in this thread thier wrong! for instance the code P0193 isn't "Engine Fuel Temperature Sensor circuit" it's "Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor High Voltage"

just a tip from a guy that has a P0193 code ;)

Dude, that would so totally explain the battery error code! And, I still hold out hope that solving that issue will resolve the other error condition that caused the other code. Good luck!

S2 I can't take credit for it though, I found that list on another site so yeah, still good information plus your post had codes I didn't have so win/win for both of us.

Thanks for taking the time to search for the summary you posted, I'm sure it'll help alot of people in the future.

codes

Wow S2, yours has a LOT more detail than I've seen anywhere! I think the last section of the one I found has a few more codes that weren't in your collection, but the vast majority of the codes you Posted has so much more explanatory information! And when you've got a problem......need more data!
