Not going to believe this.

I just wanted to let all know that I solved the CEL - Check engine electronics. I took to an independent repair shop and the tech asked when the battery had been changed. I told him that I did not think it had ever been changed so he checked it and found it to be the original battery(remember that the car is a '96 model).

At any rate, he installed a new battery and we have not had any more problems with the CEL. Evidently the low voltage in the battery was causing one or more of the sensors to detect faults that did not really exist.

This seems like such a "no-brainer" to check the battery on a 6 year old car. However, I took the car to two seperate dealerships and neither of them said anything about the possibility of low volatge causing the problem.

I am glad this chapter is closed!
