Question about Computers & Internet
I assume your talking about the CPU in the "Brain" ...the electronic device that handles the engine ignition, monitoring, and operation of the engine and major associated engine components.
I would take it to the dealer and request a diagnostic test. Cost's a bit, not too much, but a bad CPU would produce no codes for the test ...or produce a 'bad' CPU code... both revealing a bad CPU. The dealer or a good repair shop can tell you if the CPU is good or bad.
You might try disconnecting your positive battery cable for 30 seconds or longer. This may reboot the CPU and reset it to normal operation. Then drive your car a couple of miles so it can
'normalize' itself . If you do this first...it would probably erase the stored codes if any for the dealer test. If you have a bad CPU, it wouldn't matter. BUT if it's not a bad CPU... you've lost your codes and a more simple 'fix' by telling you what 'was' wrong.
You can also Google your problem and find people's insight... having the same problem with the same model car
Good luck . .---bp
