I read up on the dash error codes , and after doing it on mine i got a unusal result and i cant find what it means

My VX commo comes up with

10 flashes , 10 flashes , 1 flash , 2 flashes (repeat 3 times)
WTF does that mean coz thats like code 110 + code 12 ?

if so what does that mean?

I've got no idea what that means, it certainly doesn't sound right.Try resetting your ECU and see if you get code 12, 3 times. Reset by disconnecting negative battery terminal for about a minute or 2.

I've posted the same thing a couple of times in the past year with no luck.
I get exactly the same codes. My car runs fine but I'd like to know what the code means.
Dr Bob have you heard of this?

Yes you reset it right, so I haven't got any other suggestions except have it checked out if it bothers you. If your cars running ok I wouldn't worry too much.
One more thing, my workshop manual recommends disconnecting the negative battery terminal, probably less chance of doing damage.

that sounds like the ABS module is dying... gradually you shall see those lights more often, if that is indeed the problem

I get the 110 code by bridging pins 5 & 6 in the port under the steering wheel.
Everytime I do it I get a code of 110 followed by a code of 12 and it keep repeating this sequence.
Resetting the ECU doesn't help even if I don't start the car after resetting.
Any ideas?

when flashing codes from the VX the 10 flashes indicates a zero & as VX codes are all 4 digits your code is 0012.... normal system operation
