Corsair - 2.0L

Activating diagnostic mode

- switch ignition OFF
- wait at least 15 seconds
- insert bridge tool into STI
- switch ignition ON
- read codes from flashing ECM lamp

Self Test Input (STI) is a 2 pin connector (Red wire + Blue wire) located under the center console usually accessed from the RH side, some have been found closer to the LH side or even caught up high under the dash.

The number of half second flashes before the one second pause indicates the TEN DIGITS.
The number of half second flashes following the one second pause indicates the UNIT DIGITS.
All codes are repeated after a three second pause.

If a fault code is recorded only that code be displayed.
If multiple faults are recorded each code will be displayed once in a set sequence and then repeated continuously.
