frown 92 Topaz Check Engine Light after coolant flush

Geez, my wife is pissed.

I flush her coolant yesterday and today while she is driving to work her check engine light comes on.

All fluid levels seem fine.

Does anyone know how I can get the EEC codes from the car without the diagnostic tool? I have a list of the codes, I just need the car to cough them up.

There will likely be a way to retrieve the codes without a scan tool... however you will need a service manual to learn how to force the Engine control module into diagnostic mode... I dont' think a haynes manual will have that information in it.

My suggestion is go to your nearest dealership and see if they will sell you a manual for your wife's vehicle...(won't be cheap)

Chance are unless you are a technician they may not sell it to you. It is definitely worth a shot though.

good luck
