I hooked it up again this evening and obtained the same results.
About the reader... when it powers up, the outer segments of the 8 rotate in a clockwise manner approx 2 or 3 times, then the Fc undicator appears. I press the go button, and the rotation appears again, then the 1b appears. It actually looks like 16, but the manual states that the 6 with no hood is a lowercase b.
I press go again, and each subsequent code appears, until the double dash shows up.
I think that the reader is working.
I did reset the reset the codes, and drove the car and the SES light did not come on yet. I am about to hop onto the freeway to see if it will come on at speed, like it did last week.
I looked at my rear air filters and they look pretty dirty, so I am hoping that that could be the culprit. That code 50
still bugs me though, as I am not sure what a switch chain grip is (although it sounds expensive).
I will let you know after my drive...
Just finished my drive, at ahem "highway speeds" and no codes. I am going to keep an eye on things, and do a little more research around the cryptic code 50.
Thanks for all of your help so far...
10 miles away... gee what a small world.
