    There are 92 different error codes. We have no idea which one(s) is being thrown by your car.....

    go to autozone or any parts store & they can read it for free.


    if you went to your local dealership & they couldnt even read you the code, i wouldnt suggest ever going back to them.

    Avoid Stealer-ships at all costs. Find yourself a good trustworthy mechanic or two (or three). Find mechanics who like to talk, and don't mind explaining things. Learn from these people. Build up a rapport. I have a few friends who are mechanics, some I grew up with and others I've gotten to know as they've worked on my cars. Trust me, it's a personal relationship worth having.

    Inexpensive OBD II Scan Tool at D.I.Y. Diagnostics.com - - - Turn off that check engine light!

    or you could buy a cheap one

    I borrowed for years, but eventually bought one.
