U need to have codes read w/ scanner tool. Most parts stores will do this free, and give u some advice as to why the engine light came on. The van may run fine, but u could be causing damage to a component or system. An example would be code for 'engine misfire', car runs fine, same gas mileage, no trouble starting, etc, but it was a problem w/ fuel injectors, by ignoring the light, catalytic converter was damaged, so have it checked out before it develops into a bigger problem. Good Luck

ABS/Parking Brake?Service Engine Lights are on But Runs Great


Does ABS work properly? Get on dirt road and try to lock brakes (do this carefully insuring no police car tailgating,lol) Could be bad wheel speed sensor. Check codes with scan tool capable of reading ABS and trans codes.

Engine light atays on car run normal


as the operator guide tells you
its running bad, and may not be felt.
my car running great (but bad) gets 10mpg.
as you may not know, engine running rich have more power.
but waste fuel and burn up expensive CAT's
how it feels means zero, if good.
see why?
The purpose of the engine is to burn all the fuel and not waste it.
when that happens you get max MPG, and great power and engine last longer and earth stays green./

Service engine light


repost with codes and you will recieve the help you want... the systems monitered by the light are all directly related to a running engine. turning over slowly could be battery or starter (cold weather does affect battery charges).

Check Engine Light Crown Vic 1994 - runs great


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
