Tracer :

Hello, I am Randall. I have reviewed your question and working on it now. Will return shortly

Tracer :

what are you using as far as code reader? did you buy one at say a parts store?

Customer:

Yes, it's an innova 3120b

Customer:

and do I need an adapter for the plug?

Tracer :

this vehicle does not use a scanner to read codes. its done by jumping the diagnostic terminal under the hood. i will send instructions next

Tracer :

Click HERE to upload a .pdf file

Tracer :

Its dojne by a flashing light on dash,. so, 1 fast 2 slow is code #12

Tracer :

2 fast, 2 slow is code 22

Customer:

so which terminals do I jump?

Tracer :

I sent the info and has pic showing the 2 terminals. did you not get it or upload the file/ repair info I sent?

Customer:

okay, what if no codes flash?

Tracer :

you should get code 12 which is normal.

Tracer :

  • If code 12 flashes, the system has no trouble codes.

  • If code 12 does not flash, other codes will.

Customer:

I get nothing

Customer:

the lights on the instrument panel all come on, but none flash

Tracer :

You really only asked how to hook up scanner, now,, I guess I need more info. If you are jumping the terminals, you should get code 12 if not does light come on at all? if not problem lies elsewhere like computer etc

jump the terminals I sent, Turn key on, the check engine light should flash a code 12 if not and sure you have correct terminals, you could have bad computer I dont know just yet without more info as to what is leading you here anyway. Hope this makes sense
