In most honda cars the data link is in one of 2 places. If the car has a ash tray look behind it, if not the small storage space at bottom of center console has a rubber flap at the back that must be removed. Or on the passenger side of the hump there is a removable peice of carpet.

My epc and engine light came on and won't star in a 2006 2.0t passat any ideas


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

I'm needing to know where a 1985 toyota 22 re timing test connector (te+ and e+) is located.


What you are looking for are TERMINALS in the data link (check) connector. (see diagram below) The check connector is located near the No. 2 relay block on the right (passenger) side of the engine compartment. To check the timing on that engine you want to jumper the "T" and "E1" connectors.

How can I check the codes without a diagnostic computer?


1
Locate the 16-pin data link connector. Connect the jump wire to terminals 4 and 9 of the connector. Turn the key to the "On" position without starting the engine.
2
Watch the "Check Engine" light. This light will begin to flash in specific patterns to indicate a 1- or 2-digit Diagnostic Trouble Code. The flashes will be long for the first digit, short for the second digit and blank if the digit is 0.
3
Record all the codes given. The "Check Engine" light will display the codes in sequence and then keep repeating them in order. Refer to your repair manual to check for the meaning of the codes.
