If that is a 16 pin datalink connector, a jumper wire won't work. At the least, you need an obd2 code reader, plugs into the datalink connector. Your local autostore should sell an obd2 code reader. Some national brand autostores will check codes for free.

Pin 16 should be voltage, any voltage on that pin? If no voltage, the datalink connector wont work.

Are you having any driveability issues with vehicle?

Did you clean the throttle-body and idle air control? What about pin 16 on the datalink connector, use a testlite, any voltage?

Just to add, You can check resistance across A & B terminals, then C & D terminals, 40--80 ohms. If not as specified replace iac.

Check resistance between B & C, then A & D terminals, infinite resistance, If not replace iac.

It sounds to me like the iac is working correctly. With engine idling, block off the mouth of throttle-body, does it kill the engine?

These take a unique scanner/software to read. They are partially OBD1 & OBD2, oddballs.

What problem are you having?
