buy an OBDII reader from a local auto parts store. I got a nice model off amazon for $60 USD. It will give you a code you can then google. Nice to have one. Nothing about your motorhome is model specific. You have a regular old chevy engine and ECU ;-)

OBDII did not start until 1996 and even then there were exceptions like the Ford 460/F53.
Prior systems require specific plugins and correct reader.
Typically there is a procedure to make the system flash the "Check Engine" light in series of flashes, kind of like SOS code. Eddy59, do some more searching and you'll find the way to do this and the error code descriptions.

Eddy. Please read my post again. You do not need to buy a code reader.
Here is another link to get you going. You should be able to handle it from here.
How to read older GM OBD diagnostic codes for free

i think it is 10 for the long light and 5 for fast
from what i read i have a code 15
found Code 15 Ignition output signal or
coolant sensor circuit low or open
coolant sensor or circuit/ low temp indicated
will this code stop me having top gear?

Read my earlier post #4 !!

"I know on cars a faulty coolant sensor will keep the top gear locked out."

Back in the 80's and 90's when I worked on cars this was common issue.

You also want to make sure that your coolant level is full and there is no air in the system. If there is the coolant sensor will not get a accurate reading.

Good luck.

I'm confused, signature says Vectra 6.5 deisel gmc and P30 with a 454. I'm just confused or maybe misunderstanding something. Jim
