You can visit your local auto parts store and ask them to scan the computer. Most stores will do it for free. HTH. -Jim

You're welcome. Glad to help. Thank you for the best answer click. Actually, for future reference, the only vehicle I know of that you can pull trouble codes from without a scan tool is Cadillac. You can get them from the climate control system by pressing and holding the off and warmer buttons together. HTH. -Jim
