2002 mitsubishi service engine soon light without any problems

My 2002 mitsubishi ecplise gs service engine light came on. The vehicle is driving fine. I got gas the night before so I double checked to make sure the cap was on tight it is. The light is still on. I have not noticed a MPG decrease. We recently changed the spark plugs. Do you have any suggestions? Should we just disconnect the battery to re-set the light? Does that light mean have a oil change? Or is it the same as "check engine" light?

If you take your vehicle to a local autozone or advanced auto parts they are able to read the code for free and tell you in rough estimation what may be wrong, base your desicion on what they have to say

What is the problem of my mitsubishi lancer why the "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" still warning on?


Hi there:
When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.

The Four Most Common Check Engine Light Scenarios and What to Do:
* The Check Engine Light turns on and off or flickers.
If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light illuminates, stays on, and there are performance problems.
This means that a vital component of your emission control and engine management system has a serious problem. It usually involves a component or system needed for the vehicle to run at all. In most cases, drive the vehicle as little as possible. In many cases, the vehicle is not safe to drive at all -it could stop or stall out at any moment. It is best to pull over to a safe place and have the vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for a thorough inspection and repair.

* The Check Engine Light light comes on and blinks in a steady pattern while driving.
Don't confuse this steady pulsing of the Check Engine Light light (usually one or more flashes per second) with a flicker (see above). The Check Engine Light may stay on steadily or it may flash when the vehicle is accelerated. This is very serious. There is a severe failure of the emission control system that is causing the engine to misfire to the point that the catalytic converter is damaged each time the Check Engine Light flashes. It may mean that the catalytic converter is overheating to the point that it will glow red or, in extreme cases, start a fire on the underside of the vehicle. Immediately pull over to a safe place and have your vehicle towed to an automotive diagnostician for repair. Vehicles can be severely damaged and even destroyed by fire if this condition is ignored for too long.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Service engine soon light has come on and remain on, No visible problems driving the vehicle,


"Service Engine Soon" anounces the need of service of your car normally. Please, check your Owner´s Manual and verify the last time you sent the car to service and when, the next is coming according the manufacturer. Service shop will reset the ligth once the service is executed.

Service engine soon light came on and later that day turned off


The reason for the light to come on an the after you have switched the vehicle off and back on again and the engine light stays dead is because the control units of the vehicle will reset when the ignition is switched off for 10sec. If the light stays off the it might be that the car got a wrong reading from a sensor and caused the engine light to come on. If it was a serious problem the light would have come on again

Mitsubishi Outlander 2003 Service Engine Soon


You'll need to know why the service engine light comes on, they can check this by using a OBD II diagnostic tool to find the trouble code stored in the pcm, ask them to run a check on it, or you can take it to a mechanic before you buy it to have them check over the vehicle for any minor or major problems.

Engine check light is on my mitsubishi chariot


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. There are test that need to be performed the find out the cause. The light will stay on until the problem is solved.
