I would say your best bet is to take it to the dealer and pay the $30 to have them run a computer check on it.  Tell them you want a printout.  They will probably be a little reluctant to give you a printout, but hey...if you are paying for them to tell you the problem, you should have the proof.  Not all but some dealerships will tell you it is like a $400 part deep inside the dash that you can get to without special tools.  When in all reality, it is as simple as a vacuum hose.  That is why I work on them myself!
