    Default Checking your Computer for Faults (VR - VS)

    1. Locate the diagnostic connector under the the steering column on the drivers side.
    2. Grab a paper clip and bridge pins number 5 & 6 'black' and 'white with black stripes' respectively on the ALDL (Assembly Line Diagnostic Link) connected which are located on the top row counting from the left.
    3. Jump into the drivers seat and turn the key twice (so lights are up on the instrument cluster).
    4. If you bridged out the correct wires 'Check Engine Lamp' will be flashing.
    5. The flashes are divided into 2 groups with roughly a second between each. You can read the flashes as follows:

      The first series of flashes is tens, so for example lets say the first flash simply flashes once, this means the code is 10. After the pause (~1 second) a second series of flashes will appear, if this number is 2, the code it is spitting out is 12 which means everything is fine.

    6. Another example just so you're sure

      The first series of flashes you count is 4 meaning 40, the second series of flashes is 3. Adding the 40 and the 3 will give you a code of 43 which means the Knock sensor circuit is experiencing problems.

    7. Each code the computer picks up is repeated three times with ~3 second pause between, so its wise to sit there to make sure there isn't any problems it has picked up.
    8. Once you are finished turn off your ignition and remove the paper clip. It is important to note not to drive the car around while have wires are bridged as this will prevent new codes from being logged.

      Any questions or queries please feel to contact me at anytime.

      Checking the computer for codes is used in conjunction with the computer Fault Codes located here

    Yes im dumb but i cant find the diagnostic connector under the steering column. It was prob staring right at me but a photo could be nice showing the bridging.

    I took the cover off udner the steering wheel, saw fuses etc...

    *shrug*
    Some people say less talk more action, i say more torque less traction.

    D/w bout taking the cover off under the steering wheel. It sits just under this. Its a black connecter bout 20 pins or so and it jus sits below the plastic cover under your steering wheel round about inline with the brake pedal.

    Hopefully this helps ya out

    Cheers, Jon Z

    Ok, I'm pretty sure I've found the connector (in line with the brake pedal on my VR).. BUT, how do I know which pins are black and white... and 5 & 6 for that matter? Some seem to have a metal connector others dont. Does anyone have a pic they could post up please?

    Default List of Codes

    Is it possible to get a list of all error codes posted for VR ?? I'm having trouble with starting takes a long time to start. I had a faulty Crank Angle sensor and replaced that, what could be wrong?

    Thanks For the Help
