not really but that has always been something that gets on my nerves for some reason, i guess it has to do with working a lot of customer service type stuff, people always ask questions just to get you to give them answers they dont like so they can go off on you

first fix whatever is wrong with your car, then go to autozone and borrow their check engine light reader for free, hook it up then click the clear all codes button
