    yes jump the 2 pin connector with the key on and count the flashes (check engine) light there maybe short and long flashes. I think there is something on how to check the codes in FAQ

    Long flashes = 10/20/30/40 etc
    Short flashes = 1/2/3/4/5 etc

    The long and short flashes will be spaced by a brief "pause" in the flashing, then a longer "pause" if it begins to read another code.

    Ex.

    2 long flashes "pause" 3 short flashes = Code 23 "pauuuuuuuuse"
    4 long flashes "pause" 1 short flash = Code 41 "pauuuuuuse"
    0 long flashes "pause" 9 short flashes = 9 "pauuuuse"

    Meaning your throwing codes 23, 41 and 9

    Understand?
