Default How do I check codes in a 1991 accord lx??

Its a friends car so Im a little confused. Do i jump the little blue connector above the glove box and check engine light will flash? Or is it like the civic / integras where you get an led? I pulled the carpet back to find no ledClick the image to open in full size.

Monty

Just turn the key over, peel back the carpet under the passenger side.
Then there is a hole through the cover over the ECU, just look at the hole and it will blink, over, and over, count the blinks! Click the image to open in full size.

I think 90 was the last year on the Accords to have LED. My 91 LX you jump and the check engine light will proceed to blink your code.

I think it stores codes for up to 10 or 15 'running cycles' aka. key run/off ... don't quote me on that

Ok finally got back to working on it.

Code 17 = VSS

Is the Vss behind the speedometer?

Also The "S" (speed shift light) is flashing 4 times. Is this another code?

Thanks for any help

Probably a bad speed sensor. It's on the transmission. Click the image to open in full size.
