Well initially it was not my intent to leave it activated so far, but this is why. When I took it to Autozone to be tested, he printed it out for me and told me what it was. I asked him if he could reset it because it really did not sound too critical, but he said he would LEAVE it on and if it was nothing, it would eventually reset itself if it were not a serious condition.. So I took that advice and was trying to wait it out but it never went out. So then the random Reduced Performace/ Safety Mode started and then I got freaked, so I wanted to leave it for Pontiac.
I simply do not have the $$ to get anything fixed, but I need to drive it. Id be fine with just the check engine light, but with the now Safety Mode kicking in (only started a few weeks after CE occured).
Other than having AZ reset the light, about how long should I keep the battery terminal off?
