Default Error Codes Error

I tried the posted "trick" to retrieve the error codes on my 06 touring. After the 3rd turn with the key facing the windshield...the engine light is illuminated!!! No error codes, no done. Am I doing this wrong?

I did this after the dealer regapped cylinder #3, rechecked, cleared code and reset light (which was on when I brought it in) however "sometimes" on a cold start the oil light will come on, and remain on until the engine it shut off and restarted. Before he cleared and reset the code P0522 showed up, which was not addresses. I have a few days left on my warrantee to address any issues.

The "trick" works on ALL cruisers if done right. Turning the key 3 times within 5 seconds is the main thing most people get wrong. If no codes are stored, "done" will appear on the dial.

How to retrieve fault codes.

P0522 is the Power Steering Pressure Switch. Easy to change but a very messy job. The fluid comes out pretty fast and there's no easy way to catch it while changing the switch.

The oil light is a known problem with many owners. It's just a matter of changing out the oil pressure sensor on the back of the engine.

Thanks again for your help. I sat out in that car until I got it right...and the word DONE appeared. I believe I wasn't waiting long enough after the final turn.
