    You need an OBDII code reader hooked in the connector under the dash. If you go by Autozone or similar joint-they will read the codes for free.

    Yep - hopefully it's something easy - write down the code and post it.

    If you get low on gas. You should see the check gauges light. Not the Check Engine Light

    Running extremely low on gas/running out can throw a code. Be nice to your fuel pump (and your walet) and always get gas when the gauge falls below 1/4.

    I am guessing that you have to have a scanner to clear the codes as well..... besides disconnecting the battery

    You can reset the PCM and see if it comes back...personally it would drive me nuts not knowing what it was.

    Turn key on, don't start car
    Pull PCM BATT and PCM IGN fuses in engine compartment
    Wait 5-10 min
    Turn ignition off
    Replace fuses

    Warning: Idle will be grumpy until it relearns and readiness tests will be reset.
