First thing to check is inlet manifold grounds.  Second thing is to
pull the codes _anyway_, even if you didn't see a "Check Engine" light.
Reason 1 - it checks that the bulb is working.  Reason 2 - some faults
store codes but don't flash the light.  Then pull and replace fuse (26?)
to reset the Motronic (I assume we're talking about your 20V).
