Lucky for you, NO. It's way easy with an OBD-1 ('95 and back) car. This how-to entry describes how to acquire the code with a paper clip, and even deciphers the codes.

That's why the store only does '96 and later; they're OBD-2, which require a scan tool.

BTW, since this is no longer really part of the "how to" for changing the ECTS, you might want to start a new thread in the regular "S-Series Tech" section.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
