Follow thespud's guidance and find out the code first. Stay in touch, thespud stated that has code book, but, I don't. I know how to find out or read the code.
Here is the procedure
- Make sure the battery is fully charged and voltage is at least 11 volts.
- Make sure the throttle valve is fully closed. DO NOT PRESS THE GAS PADLE.
- Place the gear shift lever in Neutral. Turn all accessories off.
- The engine should be at normal operating temperature. Start and Warm-up the car for a while. And once warmed-up turn it off.
- Using a jumper wire, connect terminals TE1 and E1 of the Data Link Connector 1 (DLC1) located under the hood in engine copartment possibly near Intake Air filter and Brake Master Cylinder marked "DIAGNOSIS".
- Turn the ignition switch ON, but do not start the engine. Read the diagnostic code by the counting the number of flashes of the malfunction indicator lamp.
- Codes will flash in numerical order.
- If trouble code exists, Check Engine light will flash once every second. The number of flashes will equal first digit of trouble code. After a pause of 1.5 seconds, second digit will be displayed.
- If more than one trouble code exists, next trouble code will be displayed after pause of 2.5 seconds. Smallest value trouble code will be first. Once the list is completeted Trouble codes will be repeated after a long pause.
- If no faults are stored, the lamp flashes continuously every 0.5 second. This is sometimes called the Normal or Diagnosis System Ready/Clear signal.
- After the diagnosis check, turn the ignition OFF and remove the jumper wire.
- Find out and note-down diagnostic code(s).
ALWAYS TRY TO SOLVE RATHER THAN CREATE A NEW ONE!!!
