I have attached the info for you.
The Diagnosis Connector, located in the engine compartment near the left strut tower, is used to activate and access on-board diagnostic information. ECU trouble codes can be obtained via the connector with Mazda SST #49 H018 9A1 or aftermarket "Scan" tool configured to properly interface with Mazda electronics.
Without these special tools, installing a jumper wire between terminals "TEN" and "GND" causes the malfunction indicator light (MIL) on the dash to flash any trouble codes stored in ECU memory.
I am going to explain it here also.
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 GND pin to the TEN 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.
Try that and let me know what the codes are.
