Trouble Codes (MIL / CEL) - Honda Civic

Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)(Malfunction Indiciator Light / Check Engine Light) can be dreadful warnings; some very serious others not so hard on my wallet.

Finding the error code for the Malfunction Indicator Light for my Civic 95 is not as easy as the OBD 2 (Onboard Diagnostic) scanner compatible with my Civic 98. Nonetheless, there is a way to retrieve the codes myself.

It requires the use of a pin or paperclip that could be used to jump (connect) the pins at the Service Check Connector. This cable is a wire harness located underneath the dashboard on the passenger behind a side panel. It should only have 2 female pins where you can insert the ends of a paperclip for jumping. Once done, there should be a tiny light against the center of the ECM (Engine Control Module) located in the same area that you can observe. The number of blinks correlate to the error code description below:
