after letting the car rest for a few hours I went out to restart it. Blinking CEL is back. I turn off the car and put the ignititon to ON position to check code again with AP. No code but I noticed the fan cycling on and off.
Take out the key, and immediately put it back in to start and voila...no more cycling fan or CEL.
Checked to be sure and green connectors under steering column were not connected. I'm very confused.
If this were an actual misfiring cylinder the CEL wouldn't just go away like that would it? Should I just reset the ECU and hope its just an electrical gremlin that will just go away?
BTW...anyone know if autozone uses a code reader or an actual scan tool?
