Going back to my previous questions, which i got much help I stil can't get my 1990 Honda Civic 2 door Hatchback started after replacing the fuel pump, fuel tank, new relay fuse and completing a tune up. The check engine came on but no shops have a OBO 1 code reader to check it and the factory wants to charge me $120.00 just to check it. Please help

you can get the code off the computer. there is a light that flashes. It will pause between codes long and between numbers of codes short. So it would flash twice, then short pause, then 4 times, to show code 24. after it would have a longer pause letting you know what the next code is. That will get you the code and give you a place to start. Good luck

There is a blue plug with 2 wires under the dash on the passangers side. Use a jumper wire on that plug, to check the flashes. You tube is a good place to see how to do it.

codes wont always tell you what you need, a scanner can give you real time info

Hondas have a very simple ecu set up, the codes will tell you what ever your problem is. All i work on is hondas and i know them very well. i will add a pic of the plug the jummer wire goes in. you can get the codes off google
