some codes won't throw a CES light...any scanner/reader you use must support CAN(controller area network) protocol to communicate correctly with the truck...

plug into the OBDII port under the dash to pull codes...no wires to make anything flash...too many possible codes..

get a ScanGauge II
they work great and are reletively cheap..
