Check Engine Light


Recommended Posts

I have a 93 sc300. When i start my car it almost die's instantly. The only why i can keep it going is if i hit the gas pedal. The check engine light is also showing. I was hoping someone can tell me how to pull codes without a ob1 scan tool.

All you have to do is short out a couple of pins on the data link connector(1- on top of engine [rectanglular]; 2 - front/left floor [round].

Jump E1 with TE1 to get codes.

-With jumper installed; crank engine. you must count the 'CHECK ENGINE' light as it flashes.

-First series= first digit; a short pause. Second series = second digit. then a longer pause.

then; the next code and so on. I think once it goes through the list it repeats.

Jump E1 with TE2 to clear code.

-With jumper installed; crank engine and the 'CHECK ENGINE' light will flash continuosly.

hope it helps.

Once we have the code, where can we look it up to know what the fix is?

Hi! i have the same problem, mostly in Winter...have your throttle body cleaned...its a cheap effective way to get you idle up a little higher and it wont die as easy.
