Default Check engine light on 99 2.5rs

So I got back from a 4000 miles road trip last night and parked the car. Partner starts up the car to move it and the cel came on. Car runs normally but i still don't want to take any chances driving it too far. My question is, how to you get the code ? If anyone has any links to read up on this I would really appreciate it.

Autozone will usually pull the codes for you. When I went there they opened a new one and just handed to me to use hahah.

He's in Ottawa, don't know if they have Autozones up there.
If they don't, try your local forum to see if someone near you has a scanner and can pull the code for you.

Yeah no Autozones in Ottawa..and i'm a she not a he

Good thing we got this awesome small local shop always willing to lend a hand..or a tool in this case. I just thought there may of been a way to find out otherwise but from what I understand not with obd2.

The code is p1400, something emission related. I will need to do some reading to find out more about it. If you guys have any suggestions on where to start looking, let me know !

Well I am confused. according to a website with a list and short definitions of codes this is what I found:
P1400 Differential Pressure Feedback Electronic Sensor circuit Low Voltage.

Yet according to the Mac Tools reader - it stated it was emissions related.

Time to take out the shop manuals.

Most likely, you need a new solenoid.

a DPFE sensor is an emissions device

P1400 Fuel tank pressure control solenoid valve circuit low input
