General information

  • 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

  • Start engine.
  • Drive vehicle until engine at normal operating temperature.
  • Switch ignition OFF.
  • If engine does not start or stalls: Continue with test.
  • Switch ignition ON.
  • Disconnect data link connector (DLC) 1 (in engine compartment) 1 [1].
  • Jump DLC 1 terminals 3 & 6 (blue/white and blue wires) 1 [2].
  • Wait 2 seconds.
  • Remove jump lead.
  • Reconnect data link connector (DLC) 1 [1] [1].
  • Count MIL flashes. Note trouble codes. Compare with trouble code table.
  • Trouble codes are displayed as follows:
o Each trouble code consists of 4 digits divided into 2 groups.
o 0.6 second flashes indicate the 2 digits of the first group [2] [A].
o A 0.6 second pause separates each flash within the first group [2] [B].
o A 0.9 second pause separates the first and second group [2] [C].
o 0.3 second flashes indicate the 2 digits of the second group [2] [D].
o A 0.3 second pause separates each flash within the second group [2] [E].
o A 2.1 second pause separates each trouble code [2] [F].
NOTE: If total number of flashes within each group is less than 10, a zero must be placed before it to complete the trouble code.
o For example: Trouble code 0403 displayed as four 0.6 second flashes, followed by three 0.3 second flashes [2].
  • Switch ignition OFF.
  • Trouble codes can also be displayed by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) 2 or 3 [3]

Erasing

Method 1

  • Ensure ignition switched OFF for at least 3 seconds.
  • Access trouble codes.
  • Leave ignition switched ON.
  • Disconnect data link connector (DLC) 1 (in engine compartment) 1 [1].
  • Jump DLC 1 terminals 3 & 6 (blue/white and blue wires) 1 [2].
  • Wait 2 seconds.
  • Remove jump lead.
  • Reconnect data link connector (DLC) 1 [1] [1].
  • Trouble codes will be erased.
  • Switch ignition OFF.
  • Repeat accessing procedure to ensure no trouble codes remain in ECM fault memory.
  • Trouble codes can also be erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) 2 or 3.

Method 2

NOTE: Disconnecting battery ground lead may cause driveabi/ity problems until the engine management system relearns basic values.
  • Ensure ignition switched OFF.
  • Disconnect battery ground cable for at least 24 hours.
  • Repeat accessing procedure to ensure no trouble codes remain in ECM fault memory.
NOTE: Disconnecting battery ground lead may also erase memory from electronic units, such as radio.
• Trouble codes can also be erased by using a Scan Tool connected to the data link connector (DLC) 2 or 3
