    quick flashes are 10s and fast ones are ones. flaaaaaaaaaaaaash, flash, flash, etc. would be something 11-19, if you are getting quick flashes then it is in the ones.

    what?!?!

    long flash = 10
    short flash = 1 ..

    so if you got a short flash then a pause then 7 more short flashes it would be codes 1 and 7 or if its a long flash followed by 7 short ones its code 17

    which would be :
    1: oxygen sensor
    7: Throttle position sensor (tps)
    17: Vehicle speed sensor (VSS)

    by the way, when you read it turn on your ignition, it should blink once just to tell you it works, if it blinks more then that is the code and it will keep blinking the code over and over
