built in code reader/scantool?

someone told me that the WK had a built in check-wallet light code reader/scantool mode that would display in the EVIC, but he didn't know how to activate it. does anyone here know anything about this?

to activate the one in my fiero I just short two pins in the diagnostic port, making the check-wallet light flash a code which you write down and look up in the manual.

Liberalism stems from the notion that it's entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

It goes something like this for turning the key:
on/off on/off on

Or maybe it's:
on/off on/off on/off on

Then the code is supposed to show up in the EVIC, but I've yet to see this happen in my limited experience.

On-off-on-off-on Under 5 seconds.

Someone on here said that it'll work with the WK, but I have never tried it, and I thought they did away with it in like '02. Try it and see if it works.

I have done it to the wifes 07, it does work!! It comes in handy when you take it to the dealer, when they say they have nothing you can tell them the code you pulled yourself.

It definately works. You have to have the door open when you do it.

On-off-on-off-on.

Ah, so that's the trick. The door has to be open! Should you also be parked, or can I do this on the freeway?

But I can still open my door, right? Like if I have to clear out the empty beer cans?

You have to open the door to go freeway tubing as well, unless you drop from the rear hatch.
