  • How to Access/Reset codes.

    Hi All, After Putting a new gas control box on the Paj( old box wouldn't let the engine stop while running on petrol,even with key out and ignition off), the engine warning light is still on, I can't remember which buttons I push while turning on the ingnition to access the codes on the center screen. I have done this before and I believe that I can also reset the codes from memory. Any help would be appreciated.

    Didnt think you could access fault codes from it, but if you hold down ADJ for about 10 seconds while you turn on the key it will let you into a semi diagnostic mode.

      First I've heard of it too... thought you needed to connect the lappy into it.

      Would be good though...

      That diagnostic mode doesn't really tell you much lol

        To erase codes simply disconnect battery for 10 sec. To read them you need a scanner.

          For starters, there is no way you can read engine ecu error codes on the dash by holding down any buttons!

          Consult a repair manual, or speak to somebody with tools who can read and reset codes!

          Disconnecting the battery won't reset hard faults, or ABS/SRS codes!

            Thanks fella's, It was the semi diagnostics I was after. Problem sorted now. I should cover the gas controller boxs when I wash the mud out of the engine bay.

            Thanks

              It's not even "semi" I guess - just shows you volts, basic ABS and communications check and a couple of other things I can't remember. I do know it is fairly useless.

              But on the topic, has anyone bought / used one of the OBD2 code scanners?

                Yes, was the best $240 I've ever spent.

                Full diagnostics, monitors everything on a small display, just plug it into your service connector.

                  The trip computer part doesn't work though does it ? I seem to remember this was discussed on another topic previously.

                  The one thing I really want on my NM is a trip computer with fuel consumption. Who knows why Mitsu Aus didn't include it on the RV meter when overseas models have it.

                    There must be a way to get the RVmeter to do the trip meter thing. Maybe some jumpers inside?

                      The service connector on the NP didn't look like the standard OBD type connector. Does it use the standard OBDII protocol but just has a different plug on it?

                      I have a diagnostic tool I use on my commodore but never tried on the Pajero as the plug is not right.

                        Hi,
                        Just wondering were the connector is located in the NP pajero and what it looks like?

                        Thanks in advance

                          Hi All,

                          just use OBDII. It works. I have the reader and the software.

                            So if it uses OBDII then the scangauge should work. www.scangauge.com

                            Can anyone confirm if the trip computer and fuel consumption part of the scanguage works on an NM, because I'm fairly sure that on the previous forum that someone said it didn't !?

                            hey chronix, where are you located ? it's possible that the Aus cars are not OBDII. Certainly the US ones would be.

                              As I said above, the connector is not an OBDII connector, but I have no idea if it uses the OBDII protocol or not, can't imagine it would be different betwen countries though
