Default 95 SW2: Help with Code 19

Thanks to this forum I had grown pretty confident with working on my 2002 SL2 that I decided to buy a cheap fixer upper 1995 SW2 auto w/ 140K, engine seems to run fine but SES light on.

Immediately upon getting the car I did the following, new fuel filter, plugs, wires, air filter, etcs, thermostat, oil&filter change, ATF change w/filter, valve cover gasket ( oil all over the top and in the spark plug wells ).

It seems to run good, many more rattles than my 2002 but then again the car is 7 years older too.

Anyways, SES still one. Did the paper clip and get code 19.

Did searches on here and points to CPS but most of the posts mention the car doesn't run. Seems to run fine no obvious misses. I went ahead and replaced the CPS anyways. Did not fix it.

Symptoms: It may or may not be related but the RPMs guage reads low and is sporatic and bounces around. About the first 30-45 seconds of starting the car the SES light will be off and the RPM guage doesn't move. Right when the SES light comes on the RPM guage starts to move but for sure reads low and bounces not steady. The idle of the car seems pretty normal for a cold start. No issues starting.

Any advice where next to start ? Not for sure where the other end of the CPS wires lead to for checking.......

I'm sort of shocked to hear of an S-series getting that code. I'd replace the sensor but, it's probably the wiring. I don't have the wiring for a '95.

There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

Go here, its a 6x signal failure. Could be a connector or bad wire but its not the CPS failure. Its the ICM module.

Thanks guys. What a great help.

Got a ignition control module from the pick and pull for $16 and back in business...... the RPM guage is reading more normal and the SES gone.
