Hi jswanson44, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation

What you need to do here is have the computer scanned for code/s this is your starting point of diagnosis and get back with the code/s we start here

Or you can do it by jumping B to A on the diagnostic link connector and read of the flashes-example DTC 12 will Flash pause Flash Flash

Just trying to help you here in the event it happens again-you can do it without autozone's help. Of course they can pull the code/s for you I believe its not a free service anymore
