Hello,
Here is the problem: When I attempt to check the trouble codes, I can't get the EEC to send them. I have jumpered the ST1 to ST0 with no luck. Are these (2) seperate problems? I have NO OTHER PROBLEMS with this car. Please respond with your informed insight...

Tex,

I actually did this exact thing on the same car a few hours ago before coming into work (stupid overnight shift) Got an error on the engine coolant temperature sensor but on closer inspection it looks to be a disconnected ground wire could be the cause. Well find out when my shift is done and that's another story anyway ....

I'm not sure what the ST1 and ST0 are so either your talking about different connectors or we're using different words to describe the same thing so I'll just go into overkill mode ...

Find the EEC test plug in the engine compartment behind the battery which should be easy since it is labeled "EEC Test", hehee. That whole thing can be gently pulled of it's metal support. take off the cover and you'll have two plugs; one with I think 5 or 6 pin's (A row of two and a row of 3 or 4 pins - I don't remember the exact count) and just a single pin connector.

Jump the single pin connector (Self Test Input) to right pin in the row of 2 (Signal Return Pin) . Turn the ignition on (but don't start the car) You'll hear the clicking of relays, the cooling fan will turn on and off than shortly after that you'll get your EEC codes via the blinking check engine light.

You might want to run the running engine test as well but the details slip my mind. Involves running the engine, turn it off, run it again turning the steering wheel and 10-15 seconds somewhere. :lol:

Anyway, hope that helped in someway.

As for what the source of the problem is, I would take a guess it's the neutral switch on the transmission which would sound about right since this all started when you went through a fair amount of water. Maybe the impact of the water wiggled the connector loose and driving around finally seperated the connectors. The switch itself is _proabably_ fine or it wouldn't have started at all after you got out of the water.

While I"m in the general area reconnecting that ground wire later today I"ll see if I can find the connector for the switch. I'll race ya :twisted:
