Check Engine Light 2007 Jeep Compass
Long story short....my dog died and we were trying to bury her. It got dark so we used the headlights on my 2007 Jeep Compass for light knowing we would possibly drain the battery.
Well, needless to say the battery died. All of the other lights came up (so I guess we didn't completely drain it?), but it wouldn't crank. AAA came out and gave us a jump and my car started up right away. But now the check engine light is on. The check engine light was not on prior to this happening and the car was and still is driving fine.
My questions is:
Is it possible that the check engine light just needs a reset? is that possible to do? If so, how do I do it? And, lastly, does some where like Auto Zone (or a place like that) do the diagnostic test if I should need to get it done and/or can they reset it or can I take do it myself (someone who doesn't know very much about cars) to avoid paying someone (funds are really tight right now) or do I have to take it to a mechanic?
