    In the meantime, you can jump the service connector if you wish to pull the trouble codes.

    The service connector is located just above the ECU behind the passenger kick panel. It may be inserted into a blue or green rubber holder (for picture, click CEL link in my signature).

    Immediately above, the blue connector with 2 wires (brown and black) is the service connector.
