Need help with OBD2 Transmission Code Check

Reaching for a miracle here, hoping someone with an OBD2 SVX reads this tonight. I need to check my transmission codes tomorrow morning (it is currently 2 hours away) and the OBD1 sequence doesn't work because we can't shift into D with the ignition off. I found the following sequence. Can someone try this and let me know if it works on your OBD2?
  1. Warm up the engine
  2. Turn the ignition switch OFF
  3. Turn the ignition switch ON
  4. Start the engine
  5. Drive the vehicle at speeds greater than 12 MPH
  6. Stop the vehicle
  7. Depress the brake pedal and move the gear selector to "1"
  8. Turn the ignition switch to OFF
  9. Turn the ignition switch to ON
  10. Move the gear selector to "2"
  11. Move the gear selector to "1"
  12. Move the gear selector to "2"
  13. Move the gear selector to "3"
  14. Move the gear selector to "D"

Re: Need help with OBD2 Transmission Code Check

If the OBD2 Car doesn't have the green power light on the dash the obd1 method won't work regardless if you can or can not move the gear shift out of park... Which you should be able to just have to remove the cover over the button and use a small screw driver to push the button.

on obd2 I believe trans codes should be available via an obd2 reader.
