Unhappy 96' Honda Odyssey RA2 4WD CEL question


need some help please. Recently the CEL on my Odyssey started coming on after it seems the engine had warmed up a bit. The light doesn't come on again after switching the engine off and on again. I had a look on various sites and ways to check the CEL code but I haven't had any success yet.

1. One was to check the flashing light on the ECU but I suspect this is pre 96' as my ECU doesn't have this light.
2. Bridge connector with brown and black cable and check CEL flashing to get code. I can;t find the connector. The connectors on the ECU look different from the one explained in How-To: Check your ECU when you get an Check Engine Light -

On switching the ignition on as normal, I get six beeps? If this is the error code then it seems to point to ECT - water temperature sensor. Is this right?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, managed find the service connector - behind clove box. The ECL reads code - 12 EGR - exhaust gas recirculation lift valve. Can anyone tell me where can I find this sensor? Thanks.
