OBD-II codes follow a standardized format, with various parts of the code
providing certain information. The "P" indicates that these are powertrain
codes. For most of the codes that you listed, the next digit is a "1",
which makes those codes manufacturer-specific (not generic SAE) codes. The
third digit indicates the general area of the fault -- look here for more
information (http://www.obdii.com/dtcanatomy.html) -- within the overall
Identifying the specific "P1" codes that you have will likely require a factory service manual or its equivalent, though you may have some luck searching the web for the individual codes.
p0300 - random misfire
p1111 - iat intermittent high voltage
p1637 - generator L terminal circuit
p1653 - low engine oil lamp control circuit
have you recently messed with your altinator?
