I work for autozone and they are required to check your codes the lady you talked to is being lazy if they are not willing to check your engine code ask to speak to thier manager or call thier main office in memphis tennesse it is autozone policy to help the cust in this matter.
If you want to read the code yourself all you need is a paper clip and the diagnostic connector will be down below your dash panel clearly visible. Put the paper clip in the two terminals you should see on the right hand upper side put one end of the paper clip in each one and turn the ignition key it will then flash a two code system, it will flash once, pause, then twice pause it will flash this code three times then any other codes on your car that will flash will flash the same way in a flash example, one, small pause, two, small pause, three, small pause, then longer pause, one, small pause, two, long pause then next code. That code would equal code 32, it will flash each code 3 times a piece. When you see code 12 flashed again it has completed it cycle then simply google obd 1 code 32 and see what come up or go to autozone and they can print out a trouble shooting checklist for that code that you can follow to eliminate and find your problem.
I forgot to mention it should be the only two terminals you see directly next to each other.
