code 14

I have a 93 v6 pickup and the check engine light just came on. I did the trouble code diagnostic,

code 14 which is no "IG" or "IGF" Ignition To ECM from Ignitor several times in succession.

does any one know what that means..

means the ECM isn't getting anything from the igniter.. wouldn't be the first v6 igniter I have seen go bad.. try one from a buddy's truck that has matching numbers and see if it starts. cheap way to diagnose it quickly

it appears your igniter or ignition coil is going out. Most of the time it just dies. but here is the DTC sheet for it.. it tells you where to look to solve the problem, but this one is pretty basic. I wouldn't really worry about it unless it stops running, which I suspect it will. Is it misfiring?

Did you check your spark plugs if bad use genuine Denso or NGK also available aftermarket.

About half of the ECU codes stored on the first & second generation EFI Toyotas don't show a constant blinking check engine light therefore you must pull the ECU codes to see if a fault is registered.

To pull the ECU codes:

All 1980-1995 and including 1995 EFI equipped vehicle allow you to find engine and related faults by pulling the ECU (computer) codes without the need for a handheld OBDII diagnosis scanner, the sites listed below have the fault codes needed to pull the codes and the instructions on how to do it:

Pulling the ECU (EFI computer) codes is the first thing I do to diagnosis a problem thereafter I reset the ECU to see if the same problems show up and if so I then take voltage measurements at each ECU wire both with the engine running and not and compare with the factory service manual, I also close the ignition switch after a cold engine and also after a warm engine and compare the resistance values with the factory service manual. This technique will completely isolate your problem without having to do trial and error and it is the technique I use when repairing tv's, vcr's, home/car audio.
