When the CEL shows, an error has been detected by the engne management system and you need to retrieve the Diagnostic Trouble code to understand what is wrong.
In the hood compartment there is a diagnostic unit which you can use to retrieve the code.
1. Locate the diagnostic unit and remove its cover. Connect selector cable to socket No. 2. Turn ignition to ON position. Enter control function No. 1 (retrieve codes) by pressing push button one time for at least one second and no more than 3 seconds.
2. Watch red LED and count number of flashes in 3-flash series. Flash series are separated by 3- second intervals. Note all codes. Only 3 separate codes can be stored at once. If no codes are stored, LED will flash 1-1-1, indicating fuel system is operating properly.
3. If a fault code is received, write it down. Depress push button again and check for additional codes. Depress push button a third time if necessary. If first code repeats, no other codes are present.
4. Diagnostic system memory is full when 3 codes are present. Those 3 codes must be repaired before further codes can be retrieved.
For fuel system testing, repeat the above but plug the terminal # 6 instead.
