Holden jackeroo 1997 v6 24 valve petrol

I am fixing it my self I havnt tried anything at the moment was just looking for advise

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that is all thanks

Hello there,

The first thing to do is have a scan for codes set.

The diagnostic connector is a flying lead tucked behind the right hand front of the console, in front of thr gearshift.
