Check Engine light just came on steady

I had a new battery installed last night. Could this have anything to do with the Check engine light coming on tonight, or is it just a coincidence.

It could, to clear the check engine light, you or someone else can unhook the negitive battery termanal, wait about 2 minutes and unhook thev positve cable, wait a couple minutes and rehook positive cable then negitive cable. this should turn off light. if it comes back on, you'll need to have it diagnosed.

Turns over, but why doesn't it start with key?


Last month, my car wouldn't start when I turned the key and it was because the engine was busted. I would hear a bit of a rumble and then I would hear nothing. However, if you can't hear anything, then it is probably an issue with your battery. Did you leave your lights on in your car the night before? When you leave your lights on, it drains the battery and makes it so your car doesn't start. Auto Repairs

My emissions light is on when I first started kinda shaky last night I noticed little smoke under hood would it be OK to drive an please someone tell me what this could he


The emission light comes on when the computer detects a leak or malfunctioning part in the system. It can come on due to a loose gas cap to a disconnected hose. There a lot of things that make this light come on. IS the check engine light on/flashing? If so, you may have a misfire causing the shake. If the engine light is on, have the codes scanned to isolate the problem.

Check engine light flashing, knocking, low power


Hello Shena: The flashing check engine light means to get your attention as the engine is misfiring as well as having some sort of "fault" The only reason that light comes on at all is that your vehicle is exceeding federal tailpipe emissions by a factor of 1 and a half.
The knocking and shaking is most likely caused by the misfire.
Have it analyzed by a good shop and best case scenario is there is a malfunctioning spark plug, spark plug wire or ignition coil. Get it done right away, misfires can damage the catylitic convertor (thus the flashing instead of steady light)
It would help to know the VIN of the car so mechanics can drill in on the specific model of your vehicle.

Hit a bump on the road and the engine cuts out. No warning, no warning lights. Engine starts normally after that.


Check to see that your battery is secured. See if you can wiggle it. Make sure all battery terminal connections are tight, and all ground wires.
