after going through the whole run of codes the computer resets and erases the codes. Just go to autozone and have them read it, or go to oreilly and rent a code reader so it can spell it out for you haha. It can be confusing and it takes a while to get the hang of it. The first slight blink is just saying it's going into code read mode. Then it flashes a number for the size of engine, it may be 3? I dont recall. Then it goes into the codes.

well, i dont know if my codes were cleared out or not because the light still comes on i guess its because ****s still messed up

also autozone cant read odb1 can they?

im pretty sure the engine size is 3, between the half blink.. 3 blinks...im cool but right after it just dosent read a real code, couting it like that i end up with "1" or some crap "999"

i think out of the man times i did do this ive narrowed it down to something..injectors...maybe explaining my "camming" at stoplights etc

autozone can read obd1, they've done it on mine before. The codes will kick out anytime you start your car, and previous codes will exist (after restarts) for problems that haven't been fixed, or at least that's what the case has been with me before

there's no difference between an obdi and obdii scanner, they're just plug in a different wiring harness to fit the different plugs.
