Hey Folks,

I was wondering if there's any way to check out what trouble code is causing my Check Engine light to come on without having one of the computers that can read it. I know in my old chevy I could run a jumper line from one connection to another and it would cause the Check Engine light to blink out the trouble code. Does anything like that work on a 2001 Forester?

Thanks for any help.

No there isn't but some of the national chain autopart stores will pull codes for free.
In my area Autozone does it.
