Step 1. With the vehicle stopped, put the gearshift lever in "N" (neutral), be sure that the neutral indicator comes on and turn the ignition switch to "off".
Step 2. Turn the ignition switch to "on" while pushing the UP and Down shift switches (gearshift switches) simultaneously. The "N" on the gear position indicator starts blinking.
Step 3. Within 5 seconds after turning the ignition switch to "ON", push and release the gearshift switches in the order of UP switch, Down switch, and UP switch. (Do not hold onto the switch)
The gear position indicator displays "- -" to indicate the system enters the intial setting mode.
If more than 5 seconds elapse or the procedures are incorrect, The "N" stops blinking and stays on. Repeat the procedures from step 1 at this time.
Step 4. Move the throttle lever to fully closed position, then to fully open position, and then move it to the fully closed position again within 5 seconds after "- -" displays on the gear position indicator.
Step 5. When the initial setting procedure is complete, the indication on the gear position indicator changes from "- -" to "N".
If the "- -" on the gear position indicator blinks, repeat the procedure from step 1.
That is the intialization sequence. That only needs to be done if you have removed the ECM or TPS. If you think you have codes stored in memory and want to reset the ECM there is a different procedure. It is similar, but step 3 is to hold down both gear shift buttons for two seconds. If there is a problem code the "--" blinks the number for that code. If there is no codes in memory the "--" comes on steady for three seconds and goes out.
