General information

  • Refer to the front of this manual for general test conditions, terminology. detailed descriptions of wiring faults and a general trouble shooter for electrical and mechanical faults.
  • Malfunction indicator lamp (MIL) will illuminate or flash if certain faults are recorded.
  • ECM operates in backup mode if sensors fail , to enable vehicle to be driven to repair shop.
  • Trouble codes can be displayed by the MIL or by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC).

Accessing

Flash codes

  • Within 5 seconds switch the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON.
  • Count MIL flashes. Note trouble codes.
  • Each trouble code consists of two groups [1] [A].
  • The first group of flashes indicate the ‘tens’ of the trouble code.
  • The second group of flashes indicate the ‘units’ of the trouble code.
  • A short pause separates ‘tens’ and ‘units’ [1] [B].
  • A long pause separates each trouble code 0[1] [C].
  • For example: Trouble code 21 displayed [1]
  • End of test sequence indicated by trouble code 55.

P codes & Hex codes

  • Trouble codes can be displayed by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC):
o Intrepid [2]
o Neon [3]
o Stratus [4]
