Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

When those lights come on,codes are set in the computer system and you need to get the codes read. Most parts stores will read these codes for free with their code reader, but they can't get data needed to help diagnose the codes.

A scan tool that most shops have and that parts stores will loan to you for a deposit will tell you more information regarding the codes that have been set.

Thanks, Ron

We hooked up to a decoder and no code comes up, now after doing this the check engine lights have gone away. I don't feel safe in my car

You need to use a scan tool, NOT a code reader. We need to read data.

Thanks again and please rate me 5 stars now and let me know me you need me again later on.
