I do not believe that the method you are using can be done on your model year. You must use a scanner such as an OBD 11.

You can go to a shop and they can scan it for you with these $7000 computer things. They might charge you a bit to have it scanned though, I can't imagine much though.

Yeah, they do it for free around my area too. They will usually tell you what the code is, and even reset it for you too. I suppose some may not, but around me they will.
