My check engine light came on after startup after not driving my car for a week or so, how can I manually read the CEL?
Tried searching but didn't come up with anything, thanks

A GM tech 2 or similar can bus enableded scanner. No on board diagnostics anymore.

There are lots of scan tools on ebay. I got mine for about 50 bucks.

The GM Tech II would be nice to have, but really pricey.

Why would they do away with manually scanning a cel?
My 06 Ram can manually scan as well as my 2010 370Z >_<

My guess is as good as yours. My 2001 STS had it...really miss it.
