    are the code's the same as befor? do the pedle test matey, or code reader/ pedle test long story short/

    put your feet,, on the brake & exhell and hold down , put the key in turn twice(dont start) a little spanner will apper in the dash , count the flash's between the pause's,

    e,g 10 flash's-pause/ 8-flash's-pause/ 7- flash's-pause/ 6-flash's-pause=
