The Service Engine Soon light has illuminated because the computer has detected a problem with a sensor, actuator, or a system that it monitors. There are literally hundreds of codes and thousands of possibilities.

The first step is to have the computer scanned to see what codes are present. Once you know what codes are present you'll have a much better idea of what is wrong and what needs to be repaired.

Post the codes here and I'll be happy to help you further if I can.

sounds like a battery ground,check chassis ground strap coming from - batt terminal to the body. Also the one bellhousing bolt in front of engine down by the starter has ground for sensors.
