Okay I will need you to pull the codes for me so that I may further assist you.

If this is the diagnostic terminal under your driver side dash then following the instructions on how to pull the engine codes.

1. connect a jumper wire from terminal A to terminal B

2. turn the ignition on but do not start vehicle

3. watch your check engine light and it should begin to flash

4. After code 12 flashes 3 times it will begin to flash any stored codes 3 times each. count flashes like this. flash, pause, flash, flash is 12, flash flash pause flash flash is code 22 and so on. it will flash every code 3 times each. It shows codes from lowest to highest number order.

Once you retrieve these codes please let me know what code numbers you got.

Just respond with the codes when you get them tomorrow then when i log in I will look at them for you. It could be any number of sensors or inputs to your computer, without knowing the codes we are only guessing.
