CEL came on while towing how do I pull up codes

We started traveling 2 hours ago. Truck was running fine, stopped for breakfast, got back in, truck started to buck like it was hunting for gears or no power couldn't tell. Turned around got to lot shut truck off, restarted and it seemed to be fine. Got on freeway and CEL came on, but truck seems to be running fine. Can I pull up codes using odometer button? If so how do I do that? Is it like a Jeep where you hold button down and cycle key 3 times? BTW the wife is typing while I am driving.

Do not hold the button dowm, just try the on/off/on/off/on and leave on. That should read it.

There is no key trick for the 4th gen's that I know of. Only way to pull codes is via a reader of some sort.
