    I know there is a thread on here to check the 03's codes on here. If not mistaken, it's a little different than others.

    I was getting a check engine light and my battery was shot. So I changed the battery. While riding yesterday, I looked down and there it was again. It stayed on. I pulled in, shut her down and now its gone. Of course I get the quick flags telling me I have codes stored.

    My question- can an Indy check codes? I despise going to dealers.

    I'll try checking, but time, travel and not trusting myself, I'd rather make sure I'm chasing the right gremlins. Note- she's running like a dream

    Things You'll Need

    Small length of wire
    Pair of female spade clips
    Wire stripper tool
    Service manual

    Creating a Diagnostic Jumper Wire
    1

    Cut a short 3-inch piece of wire.

    1

    Remove the right side cover to access the data link connector.
    2

    Remove the protective plug from the data link connector.
    3

    Connect your jumper wire to the first and second terminal on the data link connector.
    4

    Turn the ignition switch on and wait for 10 seconds. The light will turn on for 4 seconds, then off for 6 seconds. After this 6 second interval, any stored trouble codes will appear as sequential flashes.
    5

    Count the number of times the lamp flashes; this is the first code. The code will repeat three times before playing the next code, if any, after a 3 second pause.
    6

    Record the codes and refer to your service manual for possible faults or conditions.
    7

    Turn off the ignition switch and remove the jumper wire.
    8

    Replace the right side cover.

    One female spade works for jumping the connector terminals. The spade fits right over both terminals perfectly with out crimping or wire.....:s
