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

Ok, you said that in your first response. This helped, found out the coolant sensor was bad, all fixed now.

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.
