If you check elsewhere you will find a little tutorial on reading your diagnostics codes. I'd check for that- in case I miss something. Basically- you turn you key from battery off to on- three times. Then the check engine light will blink the first number of the code- pause and then blink the next number. Then you will get a code 55 or other default (drawing blank) and you know you are done. From that point there are lots of resources to look up your code.
