Both Advance and AutoZone parts stores in my area will read the codes off the car for free. Try one of these stores in your area and they will give you the information that is contained in the car's computer.

Did you happen to fill up your car today? If so, double check your gas cap and re-tighten it. A improperly closed cap can trigger an engine light too. Good luck with things.

Schnauzer pretty much covered the bases.. get the codes read at one of the stores mentioned should give you an idea of what the problem is.. good luck! :thumbsup:
