Insert test plug lead to #2 socket. Turn ignition switch on and press ACtivation button for 1-3 seconds.

Observe LED by counting the number of flashes in 3 digit series.

Let me know the code.

Hi cruzazul11510,

Fault code 212 = Lamda sensor (equivalent to O2 sensor)

Remove rubber grommet to left of odometer. Using small screwdriver, press the reset button.
