This is how my 1997 Toyota Repair Manual says to retreive the codes.
(a) Turn ignition switch to ACC or ON position and wait approx. 20 sexonds.
(b) Connect terminals Tc and E1 of the DLC1. (You can use a bent paper clip to do this. The DLC1 is a little connector located near the left front strut tower under the hood. You open the cover and the terminals are labeled on a sticker on the underside of the cap.)
NOTICE: Never make a mistake with the terminal connection position as this will cause a malfunction.
Once you do this, the airbag warning light will flash out 2-digits codes. For example code 31 would be 3 flashes, a 1.5 second pause, then 1 flash. Then a 2.5 second pause followed by the next 2-digit code. There will be a 4 second pause before the codes repeat.
Report back your codes.
