Before retrieving trouble code(s), verify MIL on instrument panel comes on with ignition on and engine off.
If MIL does not come on with ignition on and engine off, check bulb circuit on instrument panel and wiring circuit between MIL and ECM.
If MIL remains on, self-diagnostic system has detected a malfunction or abnormality. Ensure battery voltage is greater than 11 volts
Apply parking brake. Shift the transmission/transaxle into Neutral (M/T) or Park (A/T). Turn A/C and all accessories off. Ensure throttle is in idle position.
Turn ignition on with engine off. Install Jumper Wire (SST 09843-18020) between terminals TE1 and E1 in appropriate Data Link Connector (DLC)..
Count number of flashes from MIL on instrument panel. If system is operating properly (with no trouble codes), MIL will flash continuously and evenly. .
If MIL will not flash, check TE1 and E1 wiring circuit. of trouble code will be flashed at approximately 1/2-second intervals. A 1 1/2-second pause separates first and second digits of code.
If more than one trouble code is stored, a 2 1/2-second pause will occur before next trouble code is flashed. Once all trouble codes are displayed, a 4 1/2-second pause will occur then trouble code(s) will be repeated.
Trouble codes are displayed in order of smallest to largest. After trouble codes are retrieved, remove jumper wire to exit Normal Mode
