Welcome!

You'll need to get some codes off it.

if its older than 1995 you'll need to look up the process for generating the codes using the key.

If its a 1996 or newer you can stop at any local auto parts store and they will plug their reader in and tell you the trouble code for free. Then post the code here or look it up online...
