Is there anyway way to check a code without a scanner. My check engine light came on came on and I don’t have access to a scanner. 2011 Malibu 2.4 105,000m. Thanks

You can take the car to AutoZone or similar parts store and usually get a free code read. Make sure they give you the actual code not just a verbal summary.
