Hello. My name is ***** ***** I am happy to assist you today. Give me just a moment to review your post, and I'll be right back with the help you need.

The check engine light comes on when the computer system sees a systems fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is failing you are going to need to start first with having the computer system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Has this been done yet and if so, what are the fault code and or codes your getting?
