Auto Repair Manual - How to read codes (No Special Tools Needed)
This system will only display one code at a time beginning with the most serious fault. You must repair the fault before the next one is displayed. Codes 12-45 are current hard codes and cannot be erased. Once the code has been repaired it is converted to an intermittent or repaired code which can be erased.

1 Turn ignition ON. The SRS warning light should come on & 'prove out' after 6-8 seconds. Both hard & intermittent/repaired codes should then be displayed.
2 If codes don't start displaying link the terminals as shown for 3-5 seconds using your own wire link (Click here for details) .
3 Read codes as described in the Code Format Description below.
4 Press the continue button to enter the code numbers and get the code description.
