Okay........thanks for the info...........
For checking codes.......you are correct.........you jump A and B pin together with a paperclip or something like that. I realize the car won't start but I still stress that in my directions to not turn it all the way to run.
I have attached how you check for codes. See if it makes sense to you. The big thing.....DO NOT START THE CAR!
You basically put as a jumper wire or paper clip and jump from the A pin to the B pin. Jump them together.
You then turn the car on to where JUST the lights on the dash come on ONLY.....DO NOT START THE CAR!
Watch your check engine light.
The first flash is the first number and the second flash it the second number. So you sit with paper and pencil and count the flashes. It will flash the same number 3 times and then go to the next if there is one. It should always start with 12. So for 12 it will be:
Flash (1) pause flash, flash (2), longer pause.... Flash (1) pause flash, flash (2), longer pause.... Flash (1) pause flash, flash (2), longer pause....
Now from this point on watch and count the other numbers. Say it is 31. It would be:
Flash, Flash, Flash (3) pause flash (1) longer pause.... Flash, Flash, Flash (3) pause flash (1) longer pause.... Flash, Flash, Flash (3) pause flash (1) longer pause....that would be code 31.
The second you see it repeating it self, then turn the car off and immediately remove the paper clip or jumper wire so you don't forget.
Again - I can not stress enough......DO NOT START THE CAR.
Now for the jumping the starter..........If I understand you correctly you jumped from another running vehicle.............since the battery of your MC is good.....(from what we know since the dash lights come on) just run the positive jumper cable from the pos post and tough the nut that the positive cable attaches to on the starter and see what you get.
If you jump from another car then you may have to go.....running car: neg to neg battery post and pos to pos battery post.......MC.......neg to some metal object on the engine....positive directly to starter.
Okay.........let me know.............Happy New Year by the way......make sure you eat some black-eyed peas!
