Question about 2002 Dodge Stratus

1 Answer

''Service Engine Soon'' light is on, but not flashing.

Owners manual doesn't clarify the possible reasons. Could this be something that can wait for a short time (i.e. due for oil change etc.) or should it be checked right away? Gas cap is secure and fluids are OK. The car runs and drives fine as far as I can tell. It would be extremely difficult to take it to the shop right now but it would be far worse not to have the vehicle functioning. Suggestions? Thank you for your time.

Take it in as soon as you can. Its probably something minor, but with cars every big problem starts as a small problem.

My Pontiac Grand Am 2003 service engine soon light is flashing on and off while I was driving


It is probably going to be a misfire code, but I can't make any promisses. I would take it by Autozone or O'Reily's. They will scan it for trouble codes free of charge. The flashing light means you need to have it scanned urgently. It could be something pretty major so don't wait. Go now, your car will thank you:)

1999 olds bravada service engine soon flashing when I start then remained on while driving


You need to have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes.
Service engine soon is the same as Check engine on other vehicles.
See your owners manual page 2-63 for details.

Service engine soon light


The service engine soon could be an indicator that you need to have minor maintenance done in the near future. I had a Grand Am that the service engine light would turn on when I was getting close to needing an oil change. You might check your owners manual for an exact reason as to why it turns on.

Service engine soon light is on and there are no obvious reasons why. i followed the owners manual instructions... any ideas as to what the problem might be


this light indicates a mulfunction within the electronic engine controls.It monitors many items while some being not critical or noticeable to the driver.simple things like failing to install the fuel cap after filling can cause a service light due to codes stored for emmision vent systems.The best advice is to have engine diagnostics performed to pull trouble codes tripping that service lamp.

My oil light with a little wrench beside it came on this morning, I have a 2007 chevy trailblazer and I just had a oil change 1 month ago


If the service light is on in your TrailBlazer, open the door, turn the key to ignition position and push the accelerator pedal 5 times, the service light will flash. flash your high beams and you're done.
