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.

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.


For more help, I suggest you to refer the help links provided below. These will let you know more about which areas to look, check, when there is engine light coming up on dash panel.

My 95 olds aurora losing 7 miles to a gallon when service engine soon light comes on


That service engine soon light is the same thing as a check engine light. You need to get the codes read so you can fix the problem. when a critical sensor quits working the engine will either stay or revert back to closed loop mode which is the mode it uses when cold. So it uses a lot more fuel just like it does when cold. The codes stored by the computer should say which sensor has malfunctioned.

I jus bought a 96' cadillac deville and when i was driving home the "Servie engine soon " light came on and under the MPH gauge the "service transmission" flashed across the dash ! i also noticed that when...


It sounds like the transmission oil could be low as it doesn’t have to be down much for your type of problem to occur.
To check, the oil should be warm with the engine running and the transmission in Neutral. The level on the dipstick should be between the Low and Full Marks. There is about 1 Pint difference between the marks.

Service vehichle soon in the information center


I have had the same problem with my 96 aurora. I have a scan tool, but when this happened no codes were shown. My scan tool does not show codes for the Anti-Lock Brake system, or the Air Conditioner system. So, if your ABS light is on, its a problem with the ABS system, if not then there is a problem with the A/C system (which was my problem). There was a pressure sensor on the A/C system that was faulty (on the firewall up top in one of the A/C lines) The part was cheap around $15, but the system will **** out all the coolent as soon as the sensor is loosened or removed, so it should be drained, then have the sensor replaced and probably change the oil in the system at the same time so you dont end up with your A/C compressor succumbing to Black Death. Good luck, i hope this helps.
