Lightbulb Rough when cold!

My check engine light is on and the van runs a little rough when you first start it up,about 10 min. then smooths out and runs fine,any ideas on that? How about a way to get the codes? The old wire method work on 96 and above?Sorry Guys! It's a 96 town and country van. 3.8 engine, auto trans has everything on it.

I believe I answered your question on another post. The answer won't change . No, you cannot pull codes with a wire. The proper way is with a code reader or scan tool.

You said that Autozone told you they cannot pull codes in California due to a law? You might want to double check that with Autozone corporate to see if they can verify that for you. If not, any shop should be able to scan it for you and tell you why the codes are appearing.

The cause of the check engine light is why the vehicle runs poorly and it must be found.
