it should flash the code when the ignition is turned on. it's a red LED that flashes on the top of the ECU. you should see it flash once when the car is turned on. then if the ECU is throwing codes it will show you them

your check engine light will also be on if the ECU is throwing codes.

If you have OBD0, pull back the carpet on the passenger floor and you can see the ECU LEDs. If you have OBD1, jump the connector under the glovebox area, it's blue with 2 pins, and your CEL will flash the code.

yeah, on your car its just a timing jumper, to bypass the ignition values coming from the ecu. on obd1 and up cars it does both.

also, if you are obd1 that jumper doesnt necessarily work, it depends on how the person made your harness.

anyway, yeah on our cars just count the flashes. short flash = 1 long flash = 10. it pauses then displays the next code.

thats odd, it shouldnt be blinking 12x. pull the 'backup(i think)' fuse under the hood (not the ECU one) in the shock tower fuse box. that should clear your codes. then see if they come back and check again.

Exhaust Gas Recirculation system. It takes a small portion of the exhaust gasses and feeds it back to the intake to reduce emissions.
The EGR valve itself is opened and closed by a vacuum diaphram. The ECU monitors how far open the valve is with a sensor mounted on top of the diaphram housing. The diaphram is operated by engine vacuum, which is switched on and off by an ECU controlled solenoid valve mounted in a black box on the firewall.
Give me a few mins and I'll put together the troubleshooting diagram.

Nah... The exhaust gasses are pulled by manifold vacuum from a passage in cylinder No. 4's exhaust port. You should be able to run the engine without a header and the EGR system would still work.
Here's the diagnostic flow chart:
