Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500
First thing you want to do is ground the test terminal which is the top right hand terminal, just make a jumper wire and attach the other end to the terminal to its left. When you look at the OBD plug under the steering column, the two top right hand terminals need to be grounded.
Move your ignition switch to "on", DO NOT TURN THE ENGINE OVER.
Your "Check Engine" light should be flashing. The codes stored here will flash the "check engine" light. It starts by flashing 12. That will loook like one flash, a pause, then two flashes....a longer pause and then the next code. Remember when you first see the codes flash and you write down code 12, this is not a fault code, it is more like a communication between the computer and diagnostics, it is only to get your attention and show you how the flash works, Each code is flashed three times, then it moves on to the next. When all the codes stored are flashed three times, you may see code 12 come again, that will signify the end, sometimes it comes up, sometimes it does not.
These codes are kept in numerical order not the order of when the problem happened, they so give a chronologocal time line of events. They are simply listed here.
When you are done with the codes, they can be cleared by removing power to the power to the ECM for 30 seconds. This is best done by removing the fuse the powers the ecm and not disconnecting the battery for all of the vehicle.
Hope this helps, I've done it quite a few times for my Tahoe.
