Default Pulling a CEL code without tools?

I did a search, I did several in fact, and could not find instructions on how to pull a CEL code without having an ODBII scanner. Anyone help a little please?

Dude, go to your local Schuck's and have them pull it for you, for free.

Also, pretty sure that the computer only will communicate such things with another computer.

Good luck

Jared

PS: I've been to the local one so often that I try and just check the thing out with my ID since I know what needs to happen better than most of the employess. I'll probably buy one some day.

Or go to Autozone, they do it as well. Also ask in your local forum to see if someone nearby has a scanner and can check it for you. There is no other way to pull codes on the OBDII Subarus.

I thought you could turn the key a certain number of times or connect two wires under the dash and the CEL would blink the code to you.

On the older OBDI cars, yes. On the OBDII cars, no.

This one just started. I think it's plugs, or wires. Reccomendations on a good set of plugs/wires?

I have magnecore wires. They are guaranteed forever. some have had some sort of issue with them, but I haven't. They are expensive but I thought why not, since they are guaranteed forever.

Plugs: NGK copper or Plat. Copper conduct better but don't last as long. Plats are more money but have a longer interval.

Most run copper I think. They are like a buck or so at Napa.

I'm going with NGK copper. I did some research here (hey, I used the search button, and found more info than I thought I would in the process) and decided that copper is what I want.
