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
