Checking fault codes
Ok, a while back, I asked if I could somehow check for fault codes. I said I could get them in my plymouth by turning the ignition on/off/on/off/on. I thought I recalled doing it in an old scort, but couldn't recall how to do it. Well, I figured it out. You don't need a reader. You have to connect a jumper in the engine compartment. This can be done with a wire or just a reshaped paper clip. When you do this you can then get codes with a volt meter or by watching your check engine light. Then you can do things like run your engine, hit the brakes, turn it off and back on, turn the wheel 1/4, and stuff like that to get other kinds of codes. Im going to pick up a manual tomorrow with the exact specs, so if anyone needs any help, let me know.
