Engine Indicator lamp ON


I just bought a used 2003 honda CRV and it was certied to be in good condition by my mechanic. I just made a 350mile journey succesfully over the weekend without any problem. However, I notice that the engine light is now permanently ON even though their is no noticable difference in performance. Is this a serious cause of concern and what step should I take. (This is my first vehicle so I really do not know jack about cars) Please help.

One reason for the light comming on is the vehicle needs to be serviced. If a service was just done the computer was not reset. You might have to bring it to the dealer to get it reset, otherwise just wait until the next service is done.

civic CRV? what engine? 2003 CRV?

1: check all fuses in both fuse boxes.
2: check for spark. no spark,? ECU (PGMFI) can never inject (logic)
3: no dizzy means DIS, it has COPS, 4 or 6 coil ,
no need to guess. the tests are easy. why attack a relay>?
got spark? x4 or 6x on V6
try to diagnose and not guess. guessing can not only be expensive
but you add bad parts for good. or cause more damage.

here i will show you a video. watch mr. scotty do it stuff

if the engine is good , this works !!
every time. (cept when fuel pressure is low, and the dribble test FOOLS you, )

What is the warning symbol on a Honda crv shaped like an engine on the left hand side of the dashboard?


The engine shaped light is your Malfunction Indicator Lamp (a.k.a. Check Engine Light). If this is lit, you can take it to any Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, and they will check your codes and tell you what they mean. You can also have them clear it to see if it comes back or not.

I hope this helps.

Why is it that the indicator check engine is lights on while the engine is running? my unit is crv crosstour.

It indicates that a fault code has been stored and continues to read an out of range condition for a sensor.

Scan the computer of the car using a scanner at the Dealer, most preferably (since it's above 2005 year model).

Good luck on this repair.

'03 crv has 60,000 miles. I would like to replace the spark plugs

Make sure the plugs are gapped to spec, before installing, check condition of plug wires as you do the change, or change them at the same time to be sure.

Hope this helps.
