This procedure was used with pre 1996 vehicles with OBD1 ECU's. Cycle the ignition a few times holding the gas all the way down and count the check engine light flashes. Same Sh1t Different Decade.
codes were a lot simpler also, so procedure was simple to use, easier when only looking for 2 numbers instead of 4

I got P0000
My car sounds like a misfire.
Problem is the car has rarely been driven.
11 miles the last 4 years.
I had added fuel stabiliser couple months ago.
It was running fine up to 2 days ago.
I start it up regularly, just drive it aound the block sometimes.
The car now has 977 miles on the odo.
Could it be the cat is all rusted?
From the front the engine sounds normal.
You can hear the misfire loudly from the rear and feel it when moving....
Any suggestions? I am in South Florida.

come on that has to be the worst way to read codes, I can just see missing a fast blink along the way and get the wrong code LOL

you have 30 bucks? buy one of these and you can read and clear the codes http://www.digimoto.com/shop/p-20-ctool-obd-ii.aspx
Just buy a $4.00 stop watch or if your watch if it has a second hand on it use that..works every time for me . No need to spend $ 30 bucks for the same info.

I used the procedure outlined to troubleshoot the MIL (engine light) that appeared. Turned out it was P0603 - due to disconneting the battery terminals a few times while i was working on the Z. The code wasn't listed on the wiki so i added it in for the benefit of others.

One tip - does help to use a watch to time the steps - it turns out my human seconds were way out

For those new members that are interested in the codes, this whole section is good for solving common problems.
