How To Bring Up Error Codes On a 1997 Civic

Does anyone know if there is a way to bring up error codes on a 1997 Civic without needing a code scanner? I have a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country and I can get error codes just by turning the key "on-off, on-off, on" within 5 seconds and the codes are displayed on the digital odometer. Very convenient.

I'm going to assume it's the same as my Integra. You have to look above the ECU (Passenger side kick panel on the right floor), and there should be a 2 pin female connector shoved into rubber block that just holds it there. Just yank that out and jump it with a paperclip. Then turn your ignition to the ON position and the CEL will blink 1 time, and then blink the code. Long blink = 10, short blink = 1. So for example, long-long-short = 21. If you search online for a list of the codes, you'll be all set (And double check the method I mentioned)

Does the kick panel have to be removed? What are the ECU and CEL?
