yes - many codes don't activate your CEL.

the top left and the one right below it should be the ones. My harness has nothing below the one on the top right, so i would assume someone removed the single harness, but be sure. i had to reach under the plastic piece the big harness is pushed into to find the single wire.

Lightbulb

i used a $30 code scanner from pepboys to get codes, but i had issues with deciphering the codes. the device has an audio tone that sounds when the light flashesa, so i decided to use a computer program on my laptop, to record the beeps and visually analyze them. made the task LOADS easier, plus i can easily save my scans
