3.2 Di-D Diagnostic DIY - without scan tool

Postby 4ePikanini Fri Nov 18, 2011 2:55 pm

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.

TRANSFER CASE CODES

(Your images still don't display! ... or is it my browser? :oops: )

To check it yourself, log out and surf without logging in - usually that will show/not show images.

I wonder how good this is at $29-95:

The reviews seem OK for "quick-n-dirty"

Be very careful: Your pajero probably doesn't support OBDII. I've got a proper diagnostic cable and software that can read MUT-II/III and OBDII and it only works when using MUT-II. Only the American Gen 3's supported OBDII IIRC.

Nice :) Just check that it is 100% compatible with the Pajero... apparently they Pajero doesn't use a 100% standard ODBII system - the protocol is a bit different.

Is there a way faults can be read using the dash lights on a Petrol NP?

Cheers

Should be the same method. My Petrol NM works.

Thank you for the tip to do the diagnostics without an scan tool. It works like a charm.
The engine light on my Pajero is displaying error code 43, Timing control valve system. Do you have any idea what this could be ?
The diff-lock light is flashing continually at the same pace ?

My Pajero is running fine under normal conditions, but sometimes it feels like it is in the wrong gear, specially when accelerating after a speed hump.

Then I also have the problem of the traction control off light and the slip light illuminating at the same time when I accelerate from time to time and when towing on steep hills. It feels like the engine is going into a limp mode and I don't have enough power ?
