The arrow light is for the THROTTLE control circuit. Which, you unplugged!

Other check engine light is computer functions of vehicle. That light wont go out until it starts.

Arrows pointing down is low coolant. If you can't read the code because it displays, "communication error", you have a blown fuse. Your ALDL may be tied in with the auxiliary plug. Look for a blown fuse and replace it.
