How to pull engine codes (thanks to Marco)



  • WHAT YOU NEED
    -A bit of wire, I always use those sandwich bag ties and strip the ends.
    -A 12V LED (like the kind you get from halfords)

    HOW TO PULL CODES
    -Turn the car off
    -Find the diagnositics box under the bonnet, its at the rear back of the bay at the firewall. The lid will tell you what each terminal does
    -Put your bit of wire between TEN (test engine) and GND
    -Put the negative of the LED into FEN terminal
    -Put the positive into +B
    -Turn your key to ON position, not started, just ON will do
    -Observe the codes, maybe take a video with your phone if your new to this, but they will repeat anyway

    UNDERSTANDING THE CODES
    -First the LED will light for 3 seconds as a check, then it will display any codes stored.
    -Long flashes (1.5 sec) indicate the number 10, and short flashes (0.4 secs) indicate the number 1

    Translate your codes with this table:
