The engine light just came on yesterday. I went to autozone and got the P1296 error code. Their scanner said that it was something about the "fuel metering", but of course that is probably wrong.
I took it to my mechanic and he got the same error, but didn't have any specific info about it. He said that according to his computer the error might be related to the exhaust, but that he needed a VGA(?) scanner so I should take it to the dealer
I searched for this code on the forums and according to other people it is a problem with the engine coolant temp sensor.
I got home and without turning the car off, I opened the hood and noticed that the fan that is close to the coolant was on. I think
it's not supposed to be on all the time.
Has anyone had this problem before? Do I really need a VGA(?) scanner?
I will appreciate your help!
