Cool Check Engine Light????? Trick of the trade???

My check engine light has been turning on and off for some time now. The car runs fine other than a little bit of lag when the light is on. A friend told me that there's a way to get the code yourself by connecting some wires together under the steering wheel. Sounds crazy buts its true. I found a site that tells you you how to do this but it was vague and now i cant find it. I guess you connect these 2 wires and the check engine light will flash in a sequence, showing you what the code is. Does anybody know how this is done? Be a detailed as possible
