Default DIY way to pull CEL code?

I am getting an intermittent CEL on my '99 OBS (2.2, 4eat). Is there a way to pull the code without a code reader? In my old Mazda, I could connect two wires together under the console, and the CEL would flash the code.

I am in California, and I have heard that Autozone won't pull the codes for free here. Is that true?

The car is running fine, and I really don't want to pay the stealer to pull the code.

Call an Autozone nearby and find out. Otherwise you'll have to buy a code reader or pay someone.

On OBDII cars you must have a scanner to read codes.
Autozone does it for free except in CA, but they may allow you to leave a deposit and use the scanner yourself. Check in your local forum, the people there should know.
