Check engine light

Recommended Posts

I have a 99' C2 as well, and my check engine light came on (18k ironically).

I don't believe anyone will be able to tell what the problem is without a code reader. I had the dealer read the codes (they said mass air flow sensor), and paid them to do so.

But.............. I found out that Autozone (auto parts place here in Florida) has an OBDII reader, that hooks right up. When I went to replace the MAF sensor my self (two screws and one wire, easily accessible), I took the car to Autozone, and they came up with the same codes as the dealer. They also turned off the warning light. All for free! I then replaced the mass air flow sensor before restarting the car. Worked like a charm, and the light hasn't come back on in the last month or so.

I'm sure the dealer's reader is much more informative, but in a pinch, the Autozone route seemed to work. If you do that, find a list of codes online for your car, before you go. Some codes appear to be standard to all OBDII cars, but others may be model specific. Maybe Loren or Toolpants has more info.

Good luck. :D
