Ask a Mechanic Online and Get Answers to Your Car Questions
Hi, welcome to our site. I am a Certified Master Technician with 30+ years experience and I will do my best to assist you.
Fortunately, your car is equipped with an on-board computer designed to record this type of ocurrence and assign it a corresponding trouble code. Taking that into consideration, your first step should be to take your car to the local Advance, Autozone or O'Reilly's auto parts store and ask them to perform a complimentary computer scan at no charge to you. Once they do that, they'll give you whatever code number(s) are in your car computer's memory. Once you share those codes with me, I'll be able to offer more specific advice.
