Check Engine Light Coming On But Now Off

Before I was able to service the car, the check engine light went off. It hasn't come back on. Should I get it checked out? What would cause it to come on and then go back off?

The check engine light comes on to alert the driver that a fault has occurred in the emission control system, if after a pre-determined number of driving cycles the problem is no longer present the powertrain control module will turn the light off, most common cause of intermittent CEL lights is a failing or as we say lazy O2 sensor in the exhaust system.

Had my 2007 prius serviced this am. on the way home a red light light came on with a tire light and a amber vsc check light came on. What does this mean?


You need to get the fault codes read because of the red check engine light coming on. Do you have an OBDII reader? or does a friend have one? If not ... I would take it back to where you got it serviced.
The piece of data that could be helpful is the check engine light going on after refueling. If you are lucky ... you may have not 100% screwed the fuel cap back on with the final clicking. That can cause the check engine light to go on. It is curious though that your tire and VSC lights went on ... there may be something electrical going haywire.

My 2005 ford explorer xlt check charging system light keeps coming on. I just recently within 60 days ago replaced the alt AND the battery. Thought that solved the problem then about 2 weeks later it came...


You need to check the out put of the alternator. In general the alternator should put out 13.5 to 14.5 volts. I would say go to where you bought the alternator and have them check the voltage. If check engine light is on you should have a code get them to check the code. Most auto part stores where I live will check your code for free.

What does the spanner sign light mean on a Mitsibishi Outlander?


this usually is a maintenance reminder light the factory installs to have the driver get the car in for usually a emission component check(components that affect emissions) to make sure they are working.then they turn the light off.if maintenance has been done regularly and the check engine light(service engine soon light)hasn`t come on then you could take it to a shop that has the capability to turn off the light and have them turn the light off.some of these will come on after so many miles(kilometers) of driving just to get the car in for a service.

Sounds like the dealer has more work to do on the EVAP System. Smoke test the system and check Tech Service Bulletins. You could go to a local garage,it would be cheaper.

Service soon light on, how do I reset


I purchased a hand held Code Reader at WalMart for around $100.00. The reason your Check Engine light is coming on is that you need to "Check your Engine!" If you have a service manual it will tell you what the codes mean. I had Check Engine Light on for months because I had a high idle speed of over 2,000 RPM. I kept digging on the Saturn Forum website because I could figure out what was causing the high idle. Finally after about 6 months of the annoying Check Engine Light coming on I finally figured out that I had a blown intake manifold gasket. I changed the damn thing and now the light stays off! Imagine that! The Code Reader will also reset you engine so the "Check Engine Light doesn't come back on until the computer senses that there is still a problem.
