Toyota Toyota Tercel 90-94 1.5L 3E-E Trouble Code Info


Accessing Trouble Codes

  • Switch ignition ON. Do NOT start engine.
  • Jump DLC terminals T and E1 with a short lead 1
  • Count MIL flashes and compare with trouble code table (below)
  • First flashes of .5 second duration indicate ‘tens’, after a 1.5 second pause, next flashes of .5 second duration indicate ‘units’
  • A 2.5 second pause occurs between codes
  • After a 4.5 second pause, trouble codes will be repeated
  • Switch ignition OFF
  • Remove jump lead
Tercel Checking-Erasing Codes 1    

Clearing Trouble Codes

  • Ensure ignition switched OFF
  • Remove EFI fuse (15A) from underhood fusebox
  • Wait 60 seconds
  • Reinstall fuse
  • Repeat accessing procedure to ensure no data remains in ECM fault memory
