ECM Codes

The ATGO ECM Code Page will help you find the problem associated with your ECM Trouble Codes. Check your Trouble Codes using the instructions below and then compair the code to the correct chart below.




ECM Codes

  • Turn ignition switch to OFF position
  • Locate Data Link Connector (DLC), see image below.
  • Jumper the A&B terminals(a paper clip or a jumper wire work ok)
  • Turn Ignition switch to ON position.
  • Count the flashes on the "CHECK ENGINE" or "SERVICE ENGINE" light.
  • FLASH, pause, FLASH, FLASH = code 12

To clear all codes from your ECM, disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery and wait about 30 seconds then reconnect it. If your cars stereo requires you to enter a 4 digit code when you do this, the best thing for you to do is to just remove the fuse going to the ECM.
