Today's Show - VSS/Check engine light

On today’s show you had a caller who you suspected had a bad Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS). Curiously, it was mentioned that the Check Engine light would go off. HUH? Is that so? If that was my car, and I took it to AutoZone (where they will read codes for you… for FREE!), would a code still be stored in the compuer? I would think so, but no mention of checking codes ever came up on the show. Would you guys please clarify?



Thanks bunches!

John



P.S. We felt bad for the girl in WA state… Dad didn’t seem to care less if his daughter visited him or not. And you guys put him on the spot. LOL That was great, even if he didn’t like it. :wink:
