Sorry for the delay. So is there any way I can figure out the code myself. Is there any device or tool I have to buy to do this?

Hi, I was the one helping you on the other ticket. I'm sorry there seems to be some problem with it but we can continue here.
With regard to getting the topstack codes... the only way to get these is to use a scan tool with Mitsubishi Topstack module access (a generic code reader or the scan tools they have at auto parts stores and tire shops will not help you here). It has to be a full function scan tool updated at least through 2008-2009 to have topstack code reading functionality. Of course a dealer scan tool can do this, but as well most independent shops will have third party scan tools from Snap On or similar providers that can handle this code pull, again provided they are updated through 2008-2009.
If you wanted to purchase something yourself to do this, the least expensive I can think of would likely be something from Autel (very poor quality scan tools, but they have bootleg access to modules like this). These will still have you spending several hundred dollars though for something that should only cost $45 or so for most shops to read at most. Much better than the $5-10k for the professional tools, but understandably too much money if you don't have any other use for it after this one instance. I am not aware of any scan tools in the (Example) $100-200 etc range that can handle this though.
