sure, just depends how much effort you want to put in. It wouldn't be easy and it could be incredibly difficult depending on what car you have.

You need an OBD-II PWM (Ford Interface) Diagnostic interface to plug into the car. You can then run free software and extract all the info to your PC.

Note that I just sold mine for $10.50. Bargain!.

Oh well.
