    I've read on here that you can jump terminal 4 and 9 of the OBDII and get the trouble codes.

    Can someone describe and/or provide picture of how to actually do this.

    I'm trying to trouble shoot an SRS problem. Light is on.

    Thanks.

    Umm....I did something like that on my 96 tacoma. The website that listed how to do it, is no longer available (it was 10 years ago that I did it).

    I doubt you'll be able to pull that off on a 2nd gen.

    Take the truck to Autozone (or other chain) who offer free code checks.

    The last time i did that was on an 89' ford probe gt. it involved sticking a two nails into some plugs under the hood, which would make the engine light blink so many times for the code. that was about 14 yrs ago... lol.

    You can't jump to get codes on OBDII, take it in and get it scanned or buy a OBDII scanner off of ebay and Torque app from amazon 25$ total, then pull the codes that way.

    Or run to autozone, they can check codes for you for free.

    I'm in Mexico. Can't find a qualified or equipped mechanic.

    I didn't think you'd be able to pull codes without a reader, but there was a current post that said you could.

    Sketchy roads....probably no airbags.....awesome.

    This is a lie. Codes can be read by jumping terminals on all vehicles equipped with OBDII.

    What codes are you trying to pull? You jump different terminals for Check Engine vs. AB, etc...

    I use my scangauge for Check Engine and a "SST Wire" for ABS codes...for example:

    http://ncttora.com/fsm/05+/data/ileaf/06toyrm/06toypdf/06rmsrc/rm2006ta/041000.pdf

    Read this to start...should see what I mean. Hopefully this helps.

    OK, well that's good news.
    i believe its terminals 4 and 9 i need to jump.
    i am having issues with the airbag system.
    i can not figure out how to actually jump the terminals. i can't seem to make contact with the terminals with either a paper clip or a wire.

    any idea or pictures of how to actually contact the 4 and 9 terminals of the OBDII.

    thanks.

    Yeah, a paper clip. make sure you are counting from the right end...otherwise you will be trying to jump some "blank" terminals
