    Once I had the check engine light come on and it was bad gas. As soon as that tank was gone and i refilled, it went off. About a year later it came back on and has been on for over 2 years. The guy who changes my oil checked the code and it is actually the sensor that lights the check engine light. sheesh,

    My light came on once on a long trip. It was bad gas. Once that was all run through and I filled up again, it went off. About a year ago it came on again and stayed on. The Valvoline guy ran the code and it is actually the sensor that tells the light to come on that has gone bad

    ...go figure.

Turn the key from the run to on position three or four times and the odometer will display the error code.

You can take it by autozone if one is near they will tell you the code. check your gas cap if it was loose this will cut light on.if that is problem light will go off after a few good drive cycles. or get code and let me know what it is and we will go from there

U will have to have a test run on the power train module (PCM), any parts store like Kragen auto etc. will do this for free, when you get the trouble code for the light post it on this thread and I will tell you what the problem might be.

How to clear a epc light from golf 5 fsi engine


If U don`t have VAGcom to read and erase the errors try first the brake switch if its ok (sometimes the brake lights remain turned on even if the brake pedal is released and this cause the epc light on).
If you see a engine speed decrease when epc turns on the error could be from admision *(air intake) pressure sensor . You can disconnect your battery minus*(ground) for 10 or more minutes to turn off the epc light but if you don`t resolve the problem epc will turn on again when U start the engine. My advice is to find a Diagnose cable and read the error to know exactly what is the problem

My 2003 Kia Sedona won't start. The Alternator and battery have been recently replaced. The interior lights come on. It won't jump start. Any ideas?


Alternator doesn't have anything to do with starting the car, it supplies power to the system once the engine runs. Does your starter crank the engine? Do you get spark? Is fuel pressure correct?

I have a c200 cdi mb from 2006 (w203 model). in cold mornings (0-2 C) don't want to start. everything works, lights are on, dash is on but engine don't start. i have replaced the battery yeste


Its possible the glow plugs when its warm the diesel is warm and starts more easily when its cold the diesle needs warming more so the glow plugs work harder in the winter only way i know how to test them is to take 1 out at a time turn the pre ignition on so the glow plug light comes on and the plug should glow red if not buy the 4 and replace the lot you could also check the wireing going to the plugs hope this helps ivan

Hi
It sounds to me like it could be a glow plug fault !
The glow plugs heat the diesel before it combusts. An easy way to diagnose this is check your exhaust after cranking on a cold morning if you have thick white smoke then you've probably got a glow plug down on 1 of your cylinders or maybe more
Hope this helps Nick

What does it mean when the check engine soon warning light comes one?


If you read your owners manual you will learn something,
not much, but have to start somewhere

Check lights have been on all vehicles since 1983, some
31 years. SO--I don't know what to tell you, when you say
you don't know what it means

You can speculate all you want,what you need to do is check for
codes,again what most people have done for 3 decades,look
them up & then have a repair shop diagnose the code fault

You provided no vehicle year,engine,OBD2 Codes

Have no vehicle history on maintenance,or if someone
just put the problem in there

Intermittent starting problem


I don't know why you even ask a question, until
you get the codes & diagnose the check light issues

Surely you have a check light on all your vehicles
once a year, as most people do.

Any time you get a check light, things stop

You stop using the vehicle & at least get
the codes & diagnose the problem
Then you can decide if it is safe or wise to use
until repaired

If not for the check lights,I would say you don't
have fuel pressure when you turn the key on
Check that with a gauge on the engine
