Question: Check engine light & cruise light

Recently my check engine light came on and at the same time the cruise light flashes and no longer will hold a cruise speed. Is it normal that those would happen together? Can Auto-Zone or others check the code output for me?

Maybe a loss of sensor input, like the speed sensor? Have the codes checked. Any shop should be able to do this. You can also buy your own OBD2 reader for pretty cheap. This will give you the code, you'll need to do some research from there to find out what it means.

It turned out to be the oxygen sensors on both ends of the catalytic converter. We got the parts cheaper on-line. The cruise light was tied to that problem. Even so the cost for parts alone (with free shipping) was $240.

I replaced the car's computer with no lasting effect. The lights continue and the cruise is disabled. I can remove the 7.5 Amp fuse to the computer and put it back to normal but that only last a few hours to a few days. I spent $800 replacing that.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
