Hyundai OBD1 Codes Retrieval For Pre-1996 Vehicles
To get your check engine light codes for Hyundai vehicles 1989-95 is simple. All it needs is your analog voltmeter (a voltmeter that has a needle indicator) hooked up to your diagnostic connector. The diagnostic connector is usually located under your dash panel on the left side of the steering column.
To hook up the voltmeter, connect the positive lead on the “mpi” diagnostic pin on the top right corner of the connector and the negative lead is connected to the ground pin of the diagnostic connector located in the lower left corner.
You can then turn the key on and watch the codes being sweep by the needle of your voltmeter. Example: A code 13 is shown as 1 sweep of long duration followed by 3 sweeps of short duration. Also if there are more codes, it will be shown in numerical order.
