There's a way to do real time diagnostics..

I'm pretty sure, to read stored codes, it's the two green plugs under the steering column. Plug them together..

To read codes as they appear (real time) it's the two black plugs under the steering column. Plug them together.

Codes are read with the CEL

With car off, connect the two black plugs together (located under/behind steering wheel column), switch ignition to ON, count the flashing CHECK ENGINE light flashes. Long flashes are 10's and quick flashes are 1's ...

So: Flaaaaash Flaaaaaash flash flash flash flash is 24

Here is a how-to with pictures with thanks to Rossco
