is there another pcm port to read codes besides the one under steering wheel

But when you say pcm port, that's not where you plug scanner in to retrieve codes. You use the OBD port, a completely different port. Is that what you meant? PCM is Power Control Module

No, that would be it. The OBD port under the steering wheel, this is not your car but is very similar
