    Subject: 2005 tundra crew cab 2wd w/ over 220,000 miles...
    1.) Does anybody know the cause (and remedy), for a flashing A/C button? The A/C works... until it starts flashing & then it doesnt blow cold air. If I push the A/C button to turn it off & then push it again to turn it on, it starts to work again. But now it seems to be happening more & more frequently.

    2.) In the last couple days, the check engine light came on & now it's become sluggish & doesnt accelerate or shift as it should. I havent had time to have a diagnostic test done on it so, was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to what it might be, or where to start.

    You can get the code read at most any autoparts store. They want to sell you the parts you'll need to fix it. Once you have the code you can search and/or asak how to further diagnose/fix it.

    I'd suggest picking up a code reader for cheap and seeing what comes up. No way for us to tell without that for the CE light.
