    Check engine light....

    So i got gas today and when i got back into my car the damn CEL was on and the cruise control light is blinking. My cap was on all the way, but thats the only thing that I think it could be, since it happened right after I got gas. Does anyone know how much it is to get this reset or diagnosed at the dealer?

    I agree with getting the code read from Autozone, in case it's something emissions-related that may need to be fixed. But give it time, it may reset itself after awhile.

    yeah I have a question about that mine did the same thing only mine was the o2 sensor. When the check engine light comes on does it just disable your curise until you fix it or is there something wrong with my cruise
