READING THE CODE BEHIND THE CHECK ENGINE
- Make sure the engine is OFF.

- Connect analogue Multi Tester between data link connector (DLC) terminals 1 and 12. Set the the Tester to DC 2.5 or 10 Volts.
- Turn the Ignition ON.
- Count Multimeter needle deflections. Compare with trouble code table.
- Each trouble code consists of two groups of one or more needle deflections.
- Long deflections indicate the ‘TENS’ of the trouble code .
- Short deflections indicate the ‘ONE’ of the trouble code.
- A short pause separates each deflection.
- A long pause separates each trouble code.
- For example: Trouble code 12 displayed.
- Write the code then check the corresponding code meaning below.
