Are there any fault codes stored in the computer? If a DRB scanner is not available, you can extract the codes by doing this:
1. Start engine. Move transmission shift lever through all positions, ending in Park. Turn A/C on and then off (if equipped)
2. Turn engine off. Without starting engine again, turn ignition on, off, on, off and on within 3 seconds. Record 2-digit DTCs as displayed by flashing check engine light (MIL)
3. For example, DTC 23 is displayed as flash, flash, 4-second pause, flash, flash, flash. After a slightly longer pause, other codes stored are displayed in numerical order. When MIL begins to flash DTCs, it cannot be stopped. Start over if count is lost. Code 55 indicates end of fault code display
