HI,
What do you mean by "health codes" ?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you call me
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
It does cost extra for that, but before going that route, can you explain a bit by what you are referring to by "health codes" for your vehicle so that I can make sure that this is something that I can correctly and accurately answer your question
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The dealer said that I have 14 codes or fuses that need to be checked because my car will only start when the service engine light comes on

HI,
Ok, this are fault codes. Did he give you the list of the exact fault codes. They will be Pxxxx codes - example - P0420.
Without knowing these it would be impossible to know where the problem is or what the problem is, much less the needed repair. There are over 500 fault codes

How can I get those?
Expert:  Eric replied 1 year ago.
HI,
It requires a diagnostic scan tool. The shop that looked at it should have done this and given you a copy of the fault codes that they retreived with the scan tool. If they did not, you need to call them for these
