Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


I have the engine mal light up atm from what I expect to be water in the fuel. Now I've since emptied a fair bit of water out and I need to check (confirm) the code and clear it.

For some reason I cannot get the fault code up with the procedure.
Ignition to ON for 3 seconds
Press the accelerator 5times within 5 seconds
Wait 7 seconds, then hold the accelerator for 10 seconds.

No idea what I am doing wrong emoticon

Hi Maryann,

The T31 Diagnostic Procedure is detailed HERE and you must use a stop-watch to get the timing right, especially the 7 seconds bit and the 10 seconds bit where you hold the accelerator and release it after 10 seconds. I think you missed this last bit and held the accelerator depressed for longer than 10 seconds.

Re:


Nope, I've been using a stop watch and I still fail at this. I am doing the times as close to exact as I can including the last part of hold for only 10 seconds.

Yup, that's what I'm doing. Hold only for 10,(then release) and waiting about 1-2 mins before trying again.

Re:


Try it again but this time make sure you depress the accelerator all the way in during the 5 times within 5 seconds, as one of the presses might not have registered correctly during the procedure.

I've been at it for a good 2 hrs (1hr then cleaning the fuel of water and air) then another hr. If anything I am persistent, even it it takes another hour or 3.

In my youth, I used to be told that 'patience and perseverance will take a snail to Jerusalem' as an encouragement to keep trying in such unrewarding situations.

I never understood why a snail would want to go to Jerusalem but dogged persistence was generally regarded as a sign of good character.

Apparently you are timing by the stopwatch, so could the variable be how hard you hit the accelerator?

Are you using hard and fast pump or soft and slow pump?

- I haven't had to use that recovery mode so I'm only looking for a difference in execution.

i.e. - Why doesn't the routine work for you when it seems to have worked for others?

Is there a difference in execution?

If not, why not.

If so, what is that difference?

Re: Malfunction Indicator (Dashboard Engine Warning Light)


Hi Maryann,
There are 3 KEY things in the procedure...
1. Turn ignition on NOT ACC.
2. 5 accelerator push/release WITHIN 5 seconds.
You do not have to do one every second as this might make you take longer than 5 seconds and the timing will not work. I actually only take 3 secs for my 5 actuations so do them as fast as you can.
3. Wait EXACTLY 7 secs then hold the accelerator for 10 secs UNTIL THE MIL LIGHT STARTS FLASHING.
The 7 secs wait time needs to be accurately timed from the final release of the pedal BUT the 10 secs hold time is an approximate length of time and it is the MIL light starting to flash which is the key in this step.

Also, do every push and release of the accelerator pedal as quickly and firmly as you can without any stopping at either point unless indicated.

Re:


Sorry Kev, but the ignition should NOT be turned-on in the first step or in any step of this procedure. The ignition key needs to be set to ON where all of the warning lights on the dash light-up. That's the correct position of the ignition key.
