Default Check engine soon light 1997 Grand Caravan

I did the On Off On Off On thing to get it to spout the problem codes, and wrote down the number of times it flashed, but am having trouble finding out what those codes are. Everything I've found says that it will give me a reading where my mileage is, but it doesn't.

The numbers are 1 2 4 3 6 6 7 2 6 6 5 5. I know that the 1 2 is the start and the 5 5 is the end, but I have no idea what the middle ones are. Can anyone tell me what they are and/or where I can find out? I would be most appreciative!

12 - Battery disconnected in last 50 key cycles
43 - Ignition coil primary circuits
66 - No CCD messages from TCM or BCM
72 - Catalyst efficiency below spec
66 - "
55 - End of codes

Head to an AutoZone where they will connect a scanner and read your codes for free. 4 digit scanner codes are going to give you more specific information then the 2 digit key dance codes. For example, code 43 can be broken down to 10 scanner codes.

As I recall the code readout on the odometer started in late model 3rd gen vans 99-2000. 4th generation vans for sure 2001 and up.
