those are normal codes. code 12 is no tach signal but you checked it with the motor off. 55 is end of check. i would look for a vacuum leak for the idle. also, check the map sensor. the line clogging up with carbon was common. Roy
line is not clogged and no leak. thanks anyway

my 1990 dodge spirit will start fine time after time but will not run or idle, it stalls after starting. I have chaged the fuel filter , fuel pump and fuel pump filter[sock]
my car will start fine but dies as it idles down after starting unless i feather the heck out of the throttle to keep the idle high but still wants to die. as soon as i take my foot off the throttl...
I have replaced the alternater, belt, rotor and cap, spark plugs and plug wires. Maybe a bad fuel injecter? Not sure what fault code 26 is.
car starts every time but stalls unless i play with the throttle by moving it up and down very fast
