What you describe here sounds like the "code pulling" sequence that's
used on the 84-85 5000S Turbo cars (KH engine).  You activate both
the full throttle and idle switches, the tach shows 7000rpm.  You
then press the brake pedal once and read the tach.  Depending on
what the tach reads and whether the "check engine" light is on
you look things up in the Bentley chart to get the message.  If there
are more codes stored, press brake pedal again to repeat... etc.
