03 focus

I have an 03 focus and the speedometer and trip guage goes on and off at random, check engine light just came on. Can you tap into the computer and run the codes. Thanks.

You can go to your local Advance Auto or Autozone and have them do it for free.

You can also buy a OBD II code reader that you can plug into your computer and read them yourself. Advanced and other places like that wont clear the codes for you.
