I posted it earlier in my other topic, but here's what you do to get codes on a 2nd Gen 'Trep. (I just did it on mine with "not too happy" results)

It's quite easy actually...just cycle the key to the on position 3 times (don't turn the car on) In the readout where the odometer usually displays, your codes will each display for a matter of about 3 seconds each. When the last code has displayed, it will read "done". Pretty nifty. (espepcially if it doesn't have any codes to read)

From what other members and my brother have said, almost everyone will probably get code 1684. It just means your battery has been disconnected. I can't remember ever having mine disconnected and I still got it...so don't worry if you retrieve that code.

Here's a handy link to translate what each code means... This might be a good thing to post somewhere on the site.

Codes

I know it's on a PTCruizer site, but the codes are the same.

Cool, Thanks Randy!!! :)

Maybe you can put a link to that page you just created under "How-To's" or something? I'm sure this topic will be buried within a day or two. I'd hate for people not to be able to have access to that handy resource.

Did I mention you rule? ;)

I just tried cycling the key- didn't seem to work so would this mean I don't have any codes?

Did it do anything? (did the odometer get just lines across it? Then say "done"?) I'm really not sure what happens if there are no codes for it to display. :confused:

It was instantly for me. Each code displayed for about 3-5 seconds and then the next one would display. When all the codes were finished, it displayed "done".

I'm going to guess you don't have anything to display. Therefore your'e in the clear! :)

Ok, got mine to display last night- you cycle the key between the 2nd on and 3rd on position before run. Mine said "done" and didn't show any codes.

The codes are also in the Haynes manual. A very helpful manual for diagnosing and fixing problems with your car.

Ya know guyes, I have not for the life of me been able to pull off that trick with my car. I've tried almost every cycle, from lock to on, and just from off to on. But I am not able to get the codes to display. Has anyone got this to work on their '99?
