The link above does not work but I suspect it only describes the codes you can get on the odometer display. These are limited to the functions reported on the dash and not the full range of engine codes.
You need a OBDII code reader to read the engine fault codes.

To read the codes I have something like:- <http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/OBDII-OBD-II-OBD2-OBD-2-Scanner-Code-Reader-GM-FOR D_W0QQitemZ8048545006QQcategoryZ30921QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem>
Check also the news archives at Google groups (this is different to the Google search engine) to see if anyone else has reported similar problems.
