Hello Sir or Madam. Welcome to justanswer!

 

Theres a 43 step process do get to the root of the code. If I send you the procedure, will that help?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I have seen a procedure that may be similar to the one you describe. Does the [rocedure require the use of the special harness that allows me to connect test equipment (meter, scope, etc) to the system? If so, I don't have the required harness...
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
No. You need a good scan tool, a voltmeter and a vacuum gauge to get through it. Do you have those tools? Do you want me to upload the procedure?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I don't have a vacuum guage, but I can get one. The other items I have, although "good scan tool" depends on your definition of "good". The tool I have (Actron CP9575) does allow me to view live data, sensor status (ready or not ready) - it just depends on what I need the scan tool for...

Can the scan tool run tests and actuate things like the cooling fans?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I was afraid that was what you meant - no, it can only read live sensor data. It can't initiate tests or things like the cooling fans. I might know someone who has a tool that can, however.
Expert:  Anthony replied 6 years ago.
Ok, you need the vacuum gauge, the pro grade scan tool, a voltmeter and the procedure, schematic I have. You want me to send it?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
That'd be great, thanks!
