OK, I need to know if the front facia shutters are closed when your car is parked.
Reason is... I RAN OVER A DEER. And now i have a CEL illuminated from what I think are broken shutters in the front of the car. I'm not even sure if a CEL would illuminate from a damaged cooling system or not.???
The car has very little noticable damage, didn't even rip the front air dam from under the car. I did notice however that the Air Conditioning has the funny "Im not getting any air through the condenser smell" same with the defroster. From what I remember hearing, the shutters close at 35mph and never close when the AC compressor is running, ie. AC or defog.
Before I take this thing apart to fix the damage I just wanted to know where the shutters should be while parked.
BTW, I just rolled 50k miles too. Maybe there is a 50k mile service that needs to be done and the deer has nothing to do with the CEL.?
