Visit your local auto parts store and have the computer scanned. Most stores will do it for free. Or you can buy a hand held code reader for about $50. You'll plug into the ALDL connector under the dash near the steering column. Follow the directions that comes with the code reader if you decide to buy one. They do come in handy. HTH. -Jim
