Title: Check Engine Light
Post by: coveredbytheblood on October 12, 2004, 06:37:08 AM
Hi guys.  I am back from my trip to OKC, and the car ran great.  One little thing though, in Enid Ok.  my check engine light came on.  I did not worry to much, checked fluid levels, I plan on checking my air filter, but up until this point no visible hiccups.  Then I got to work this morning, and when I shut my car off, all my electric died.  My interior lights, my door locks, even my clock.  All of it shut-off.  Noticing the strangeness of this I tried to start and it started fine, but when I removed the key again same thing no more electric.  Anyone have any ideas...  Oh yeah and maybe a Diagnostic tool so I can see what my car needs.  Thanks everyone. :roll:

So, I just went to try and start my car again, and all the electric started to work again.  My check engine light is still on.  But at least my electric is working.  :)  Anyone with a diagnostic tool.

Here's me wishing I hadn't given my laptop to my ex gf... :x
