    on the passenger side by your right foot theres to connections just jump them together using a paper clip that will send your trouble codes to your check light and it will flash. then post your code here .

    i'm guessing here but i don't think he would know how to read the blinks if he didn't know how to check it.

    long blink=10
    short blink=1

    there will be a brief pause between codes.

    say it blinks 2 long and 1 short, that would be a code 21.

    the codes are all in the referance section or you could just post it up and i'm sure somebody will tell you what it is.

    ok i just ran the codes and came back with only one. either a 9 or a 90 if they go that high. its my first time running this kinda test but all blinks were the same length and i let it go through three cycles to find any differences but all three sets were 9 blinks all equal. what do I do with that code now?

    its a 1999 civic lx automatic. check engine light has been on for a week now and today the engine turned off while driving. the radio and ac stayed on, but the engine shut down. started right back up, but don't want to run into that again. any helpers? much appreciated. thanks
