Exclamation How To Retrieve Trouble Codes Without A Scanner

I recently learned that you can retrieve your DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) without a scanner using the DIC Controls on your dashboard. It works: I did it and retrieved both history and current codes. Here's how it works: How to retrieve DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes) codes:

Turn key on

Use reset button to clear current messages

Hit gages button (#2) to clear DIC screen (Driver Information Center)

Hold down Options (#4) button and push fuel button 4 times to display codes

System will cycle through modules and display codes and then settle in manual mode

To manually page through codes use the Options Button (#4)

To review multiple codes for a single module use Gages button (#2)

XXXX H means History, XXXX C means current.

To continue through rest of modules use the Options button (#4). To go backward use Trip button (#3).

Using reset button will clear history codes but will not clear current codes.

You're welcome. There are also several youtube videos on how to do this as well.
