That's a new one. They always did it before. It's a company policy as far as I know.
You just plug it into the ALDL connector under the dash near the column and follow the instructions with the scanner to access codes.. The all work differently.

Mr. Davo

I scanned the car and the codes are P0122 and P0301.

Thanks, I'll wait for your answer.

That indicates a problem with the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) or it's related wiring and a misfire on cylinder # 1. If you are due for ignition wires and plugs, then change them now. If not, someone will have to pinpoint the reason for the misfire.

As a former employee, as long as your check engine light is on they will and can scan your vehicle for free.
