For the Database that I have, PZ2096 doesn't mean anything!

P2096 - Post Catalyst Fuel Trim System Low Limit

Thats what the code means anyway.
Krashed989 - unfortunately it doesn't work that way. PZ codes do not translate to P codes. The 1996 OBD-II systems didn't use the standard codes yet. That didn't start until 1997. I haven't found the pattern in how they map to P, B, C, and U codes yet, but I can tell you that P2096 is not the correct translation for PZ2096. In the case of the symptoms EB is having, I would assume it translates to U2096, but Anthony Haukap's site doesn't list anything between U2050 and U2100. It may be in the FSM. Maybe someone can look that up and report what it means.

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? What does code U2096 mean?

To answer my own question, there is a U1096 code that means Loss of Communications with IPC. From the symptoms EB described, that could be it.

That might explain why everything went blank for about 10 seconds or so,i lost all dash lights,dic,heater controls,it's like the car lost power to the computer when i was driving,but the car ran fine when this happened.

Thank you for correcting me. I was looking for anything with 2096, and figured he may have pressed 'Z' as a typo.
