You need to go somewhere that can read the code from your computer that will tell you the problem. Some auto parts stores have this ability such as auto zone and others.

2001 pontiac bonneville check engine light won;t go off


Once the CEL has set, it remains lit until the problem that set it is resolved and the light reset using a OBD Scantool. Certain intermittent issue can cause the light to go on and off on occasion, but most faults, once set, remain until reset by the scantool. If the fault is still present after resetting the light, it will set again as soon as the system detects the failure.

2011 Ford Edge was purchased brand new one month ago. while driving today the "low oil engine pressure" alarm activated. oil was subsequently checked and is at proper level. Engine starts,...


I had the same problem after 5 months of purchasing a 2011 Edge. The Oil Engine Pressure light comes on and stays on after driving 10 minutes and stopping for gas- it turns off shortly after I start driving again. I had a 2007 Edge as well and never had this problem. I just took the 2011 Edge back to the dealer. They could not duplicate the problem and instead reset all computer settings. The next day the same Oil Engine Pressure light came back on. Anyone out there with any suggestions?

Is there a way to pull the engines code with out a reader on a 1989 bonneville sse


Use a small piece of wire like a paper clip bent to a long U shape.
With the key on, engine off, short (connect) the two right most terminals in the upper row of the diagnostic connector under dash.
Diligently observe the flashes of the check engine light and count the long/short blinks, make note of them and check them against a table of codes (they represent two digit numbers). Look online at BATauto.com for this info. Reset by disconnecting the negative battery cable briefly (be sure you have codes for any alarm or radios, and cna rest the clock first).

do you fill the gas tank with the key on?

Try disconnecting the battery for 1/2 hour an then reconnect and drive for 10 miles. It may run rough for this period. This will clear codes from memory.

I do not feel that the octane rateing has caused your problem but it is a very slight possabilty. I would recomend going to autozone or any parts store that offers code retieval and get the code before you try to go any further. Let me know the code and the explanation that the computer gives and i can give you a better idea of what to focus on.
