Anyone in the L.A. California area have a scanner I can use to read what the CEL is on my 6? And able to meet up tuesday (10/31/2006) evening. It came on after I drove down to Laguna Nigel tonight. I didn't notice any difference in how the engine sounded or how it drove so I am thinking that since it is really the first time it has been driven in rush hour highway traffic since I got it about 2 weeks ago (normal driving is stop and go mostly below 45ish).
Thanks

its probably a CAI code, but the rule of thumb is to NEVER assume a code, because 1 light, tons of codes, yadda.

Is the light solid, or did it flash then turn solid?

You should be able to take it to Autozone and borrow an OBD2 scanner. Or you can try disconnecting your battery for a minute, and reset your ECU, just to see if it was a one-time deal; the code will just come back if it isn't, but I recommend getting the code read.

Autozone tried to charge me $50 just to read the code....I just laughed at them. Hopefully I'm going to get the code read in a day or two.
