Service Engine code display

i would simply like to see a simple display that shows the reason when the 'service engine' light comes on. It would be much easier to deal with a problem when we know what the problem is rather than have to go great distances to have someone plug into the communications plug to read the code and find out 'misfire on cylinder 3'. Just put a little display on the dash that will show that same info rather than have to plug into the data plug to find out.

Ha ha ha! Us old timers have been asking for this for decades. Better idea: bring back a full set of guages and the driver will know what the problem is - just like we used to be able to!!!!!!
