    my check engine light comes on after driving
    sometimes it takes a while to come on other times its on sooner
    i havent had a chance to check it out yet just wondering what it could be
    im thinking it might be my o2 sensor because i have the gsr into the 94 civic cat with just a flange is this a problem

    the service plug on my car is brown.

    be sure you are jumping the right harness.

    srs computer and the main ecu are not conencted to each other at all. i have no idea wtf you are doing, but perhaps you should get assistence from someone with eperience before you mess something up or deploy your air bags.

    so the SRS light on the dash should have nothing to do with the harness i check my codes with?
    what harness is under the glovebox that is making that light come on
    what all harnesses are in this location besides the one that you check the codes with/

    One of the plugs is for the SRS system (though from what I remember this one is under the driverside), and the other is for the ECU, if one doesn't work, than jump the other one, process of elimination.

    the srs service conenctor is behind the radio area in the center of the car on the drivers side (kinda by the gas pedal side of the center area) on my del sol. the srs brain is right behind the radio in the dash.
    the ecu is in the passenger kick panel.

    i don't see how he can be jumping the wrong thing.

    That's about what I thought Brian.

    Are you doing it all in the right order? Car off, jump connector, turn key to asscessory?
