As an example, one flash, followed by a 2 1/2 second pause, followed by two flashes and another 2 1/2 second pause, followed by four flashes and a 2 1/2 second pause, followed by three flashes and another 2 1/2 second pause, indicates a DTC 1243. The DTC will be repeated until the auto diagnostic push button is depressed to proceed to the next DTC.
