Locate the diagnostic port in the driver footwell underneath the fuel filler opener handle.

This picture is not from a pajero but the location is almost identical


Then ground terminal one with a piece of wire



Then switch ignition on and look at the dash lights.

Depending on what codes there are, the following lights may blink

- Check Engine Light - for engine codes
- Center diff lock light - for transfer codes
- Neutral green light - for auto gearbox codes
- ABS light - for ABS codes

To read these flashing lights are easy.

Count the long flashes followed by the short flashes.

Long flashes denominate 10's and short flashes denominate 1's.

Example
_____         _____         _____       __    __    __    __            (Error code 34)

Each code error will have a pause in between and then go to the next error code. At then end it will start from the beginning so if you think you missed a count. Just wait and count again to make sure you have all the errors.

Disconnecting the battery for 30 minutes clears most codes but some codes will only clear during driving if the problem has been solved and the ecu is happy with the diagnostic condition.

Fault codes below.

ENGINE CODES



AUTO BOX CODES



TRANSFER CASE CODES





here are the full manual downloads

Thanks for that................I was just wondering how I could get a code without a cOBD tool.

Any one know if a 2002 Pinin 2.0GDI is fully OBDII compliant?

Can i just add that DO NOT FOR GODS SAKE TRY THIS WITH ANYTHING 2000 ONWARDS. You really dont want to know what kind of bill you may end up with. This is for pre 2000 models only.

Really?????

How can I see the codes without a reader on my 2002 Pinin then?
In my Accord I can just switch the ignition on and off 4 times within 5 seconds and it lists the codes on the dash.
Anything similar for the "itchy-pussies"?

I think that the title should be edited, just in case someone reads the initial bit, and rushes out and tries it............. What happens if you do carry the procedure out on an "After 2000" model? Expensive was mentioned, but what and why?

Manufacturer discretion. GM: J2411 GMLAN/SWC/Single-Wire CAN.
so really they can put anything on it, but on later models its part of the can bus line. If you earth that out you could be getting into some serious problems.
Ok so OBD had to be put as a standard between 2000 and 2002 but not all manufacturers waited until then because they knew it was on the way. Ive seen 1997 gdi pajero's running a proper obd socket, this is the problem, and yes you can quite happily blink code some motors right up till 2002.
BUT and its a big BUT you can come across jap or us spec pajero's from 1997 with full OBD sockets. Its best to look at autodata and see what they say. So for safety 2000. My misses 2000 beetle is full OBD 2 and i came across a 99 4x4 cherokee that i was doing a gas conversion on (honest !) that was fully OBD compliant. I also have a suzuki wagon r on a t reg which is OBD2.
I also had a 2001 land cruiser, plugged in and it was can bus. Pin 6 and pin 14.
Now this is only petrol engines, diesels didnt need to adhere to OBD until 2004 ?

As always - take internet info "as is"

however this procedure works fine on my pajero that's a 2001 model and this procedure is outlined in the manual so I don't see the danger?????
