i think the service light is interval based, and not actually measuring the state of oil/filters etc. a odb2 tool should be able to reset it

WHY is it that my 2011 Jeep Cherokee Won't start (ETC light comes on)


skim
did you read the operators guide, yet, it tells you what the dash lamps mean on all cars made.
ETC ,means, electronic throttle control , that lamp means its BAD.
op man.. page 270
says what/?
it says get it serviced..
http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/

ill quote that
If the light remains lit with the engine running, your
vehicle will usually be drivable. However, see an authorized
dealer for service as soon as possible. If the light is
flashing when the engine is running, immediate service is
required and you may experience reduced performance,
an elevated/rough idle or engine stall and your vehicle
may require towing
. end quote.

if the question was why is it bad, im a DIY guy,?
then read the FSM, get it and read it and do all steps in the manual.
first you scan the PCM for ETC errors and such.
then do the steps it says for each error.
this path , works on all cars made.

My guess is you are hearing rumors.
and now want to know what
a check engine light means, (means get it serviced)
the book on the car covers all this is you like to read.
the book is a FSM, factory service manual or SM.
i close match is at Mitchells' DIY dot com, google it.
all mech, use it. so not have to memorize , 1million DTC errors.

it the CEL lamp means get car serviced, or learn to scan it and read the book. each error is covered in the book, if you can read.

How do you reset the service engine soon light?


If it is a service engine soon light, get the problem diagnosed and repaired and the light will go off as the computer will no longer detect a problem.
If it is an oil change needed light, read your manual and find the button to and instructions turn it off, most likely in or near a fuse box.

Service engine soon light keeps comming on


Have had the car serviced lately? Oil change, tune up, things of that nature? It may be time to do that stuff. Does that car have a "Service Engine Soon" light and a "Check Engine" light? If the car has been serviced recently and the "Service Engine Soon" light is coming on, it's because who ever serviced it, did not reset the light. To reset the light, this works on most GM cars, turn the ignition to the "on" position DO NOT START THE CAR!!! Now within 5 seconds push the gas pedal to the floor and release it 3 times. That should reset the light if that don't work, you may want see what it says in the owners manual. Or you may have to take it to a shop. If the "Check Engine" light is coming on then there is a problem with the vehicle and there should be a "code" in the computer. Most auto parts stores will put a scanner on your car and read the codes for free. Those lights are there for a reason, if ignore them your car will let you down.

The light "service engine soon" turn on in a nissan quest 2000 I read the manual but i'm not sure about if it is a big problem or not or if Is it a expensive problem ?


go here for quest help

http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/villagerquest/

The service engine light on is not a big deal. you just aren't meeting emissions right now.

Go to Autozone and have them run a free scan to get fault codes.

Just remember this - do not ever change the knock sensor even if it gives a fault code. It is in the middle of the engine and a waste of $600 for no improvement. It will never affect your engine performance, good or bad.

report back with code here or on Villager- Quest website I gave you.
