Honda Accord SE 4 Cylinders Year 1997 Manual Transmission Car cranks but does not start. Check engine light on. I do not have a Check Engine Codes Reader / Scanner. I manually jumped the connector under the dashboard on the passenger side using a short wire. The Check Engine Light blinks 9 times quickly and then pauses and keeps doing the same thing over and over. I am not sure if that is just a Code 9 or 99 or 999 or even 9999 If you have any idea, please let me know
