    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
