General information

  • Trouble codes are displayed by the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
  • The ECM fault memory can also be checked using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector (DLC).
  • CAN data bus enables the engine control module (ECM) to display diagnostic information relating to immobilizer and transmission systems.
  • Self-diagnosis using the MIL may not display all available trouble codes.

Accessing

  • Switch ignition ON.
  • Bridge data link connector (DLC) terminals IGN and CHK Fig. 1 .
  • Wait 2 seconds.
  • Disconnect bridge wire from data link connector (DLC) Fig. 1 .
  • Count MIL flashes. Compare with trouble code table.
  • Each trouble code consists of four groups of one or more flashes.
  • The first group of flashes indicate the ‘thousands’ of the trouble code Fig. 2 [A].
  • The second group of flashes indicate the ‘hundreds’ of the trouble code Fig. 2 [B].
  • The third group of flashes indicate the ‘tens’ of the trouble code Fig. 2 [C].
  • The fourth group of flashes indicate the ‘units’ of the trouble code Fig. 2 [D].
  • Ten flashes in a group indicate ‘0’.
  • A short pause separates each trouble code group Fig. 2 [E].
  • A long pause separates each trouble code Fig. 2 [F].
  • For example: Trouble code P1111 displayed Fig. 2 .
  • Switch ignition OFF. Rectify faults as necessary.

Erasing

  • Switch ignition ON.
  • Bridge data link connector (DLC) terminals IGN and CHK Fig. 1 .
  • Wait 2 seconds.
  • Disconnect bridge wire from data link connector (DLC) Fig. 1 .
  • Check that MIL flashes.
  • Bridge data link connector (DLC) terminals IGN and CHK Fig. 1 .
  • Wait 2 seconds.
  • Disconnect bridge wire from data link connector (DLC) Fig. 1 .
  • Switch ignition OFF.
  • Repeat checking procedure to ensure no data remains in ECM fault memory.
