error codes

the ford computer works but hookin up a globe to some wires(sorry dont know) and u count the times it flashes and for how long and then u write all that down and u get ya codes. then the fun beginns, its funny shit, its like leave ur lhfront door open and unhook the battery for 10seconds then reconnect is close the door and turn key on... its very interesting to go through all of it.. but takes ages, dad and i did my car it took something like 2 hrs to do.. from start to finish.
