remove the panel under the dash, where the fuse box is...

the silver box with the red light is your ECU.

search around, its actually pretty easy to read the codes and "decipher" them

If the ECS light is on, the light on the ECU will be blinking. Remove the lower panel, there should be a light on the computer on the front of it.

If the ECS light is on while the engine is running, it is not okay.
