For this year model, you can retrieve the codes manually.
ABS Warning Light
When a problem occurs in ABS, the ABS warning light on left side of instrument cluster comes on. ABS warning light flashes Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) when Data Link Connector (DLC) terminal is grounded.
1. Drive vehicle at speed greater than 20 MPH for at least one minute. Turn ignition off. Locate DLC in fuse block on left side of instrument panel. See Fig. 6. Connect a jumper wire between ground and terminal "L" at DLC.
2. Turn ignition on. Ensure brake pedal is not depressed. After 3.6 seconds, ABS warning light begins to flash Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs). If only DTC 12 (system functioning properly) is set, and ABS is not functioning properly, diagnose system by symptom.
DTCs will stop flashing after 5 minutes. To reactivate code display, turn ignition off and back to on.
3. After completing repairs, erase DTCs. Repeat steps 1) and 2) to ensure codes have been cleared. Disconnect jumper wire from DLC connector. ABS warning light should go out after driving vehicle at speeds greater than 20 MPH for at least one minute. After
confirming proper warning light operation, test ABS in safe area.
Reading Diagnostic Trouble Codes
1. Follow steps in SELF-DIAGNOSTIC PROCEDURE under SELF-DIAGNOSTICS. Determine Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) by counting the number of times ABS warning light flashes. Up to 3 codes can be stored at a time, with the most recent code displayed first.
2. ABS light first flashes DTC 12, which is the start code. DTCs will then be flashed. See Fig. 7. After codes are flashed, start DTC 12 will again be displayed and DTCs repeated.
Clearing Diagnostic Trouble Codes
To clear codes, ground terminal "L" at Data Link Connector (DLC) 3 times within a 12.5-second period. See Fig. 6. ABS warning light should stay on during erase process and go out when operation is complete. Ensure codes have been erased. Start DTC 12 will flash even after DTCs are cleared.
