The engine light has come on and when I checked the code it reads 43. Could you tell me what this code means.

I do a read from the odometer screen. Turning the key on and off 3 times, while holding the trip button. Then is displays the starting code number of 12 and then the problem code and the ending code number of 55. The code that displayed was 43

I would suggest taking it to your local Auto Zone or similar for them to read the codes to get a more accurate code. They should get a P and some numbers to pin point the problem.
