Default got codes? let your truck give em to you...

I have discovered that in my 04, if you get in, close the door, key in ignition. Cycle on and off three times stopping at on, the code will flash where your odometer is....sweet.

Yep...that's known at the "Key Dance" and if you don't have an EVIC display, you get the codes by doing just what you described.

Yes, it will flash each code during the sequence if there are more than one.
