You can easily remove the bulb by disconecting it from the back of the dash. However if the vehicle is running well it is more then likely a simple reset or sometimes even a pre programmed light to come on at a certain mileage.

DO NOT DISCONNECT THE warning light.  The vehicle will not run correctly if it can not perform a self test, which includes checking the lamp.  IF the light is on, have the codes pulled and reviewed from the on board computer.  While you may not feel the fault, your vehicle is most likely consuming more fuel then necessary.  at $2 or more a gallon it does not take a long time to make back your investment of fixing the vehicle

Renault laguna problems

Run fault codes as the light may also refer to the engine having a fault.. When the CPU finds a sensor that is outside set parameters it will put on a light to let you know that something is wrong. With Renault it may be the service light meaning check the engine and not service the engine.

How do i get rid of service engine soon when there is nothing wrong with the engine

Even though the engine is running fine ther still may be an issue which is why the light comes on. The first thing to do is pull the codes. his will help identify the system, sensor, or control device that is not working properly. Once youu know why the light is on you can then focus on a repair to that problem. Once the repair is made the codes can be cleared. If the repair was sucessful the light will remian off. If the repair was not successful or a repair is not made or attempted the light will come back on.

you can check codes three ways.

buy a code reader for about $50 and do it yourself.

Call your local parts store and see if they will pull codes for you.

Bring the car in to a service facility and have them run a diagnosis. there is usually a fee for this.

let me know what you find and I'll be happy to help.

Check engin light yellow is on

When the Check Engine/Service Engine Soon light (Varies by make) is turned on the computer control unit (called the ECM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. You will need to get the systems Electronic control module tested for the faults codes it stores when the check engine light is turned on. This requires the use of a tool called a scanner, it is specific to your car make.

I have a 2007 Chevy Aveo LS 5-speed manual transmission hatchback. It's been a great car so far, no major problems, great gas mileage, etc. It now has 36,700 miles on it. As per the maintenance schedule...

The problem is intermittent and might not have shown up when you had it in for service. You need to have it scanned when the light is on take it to autozone or similar when the light is on they will scan it for free.

Engine service light came on, checked oil and coolant all ok vehicle runs great

service engine soon light,has nothing to do with basics,
It needs to be put on a computer to see what code set the on,
your service engine light is for a faulty sensor which would deal with emissions or fuel economy

Air bag warn light Engine warn light Car runs great . Why are these signals coming up on the dash ?

dear friend-plse note that the airbag warning light will not affect the preformance of your vehicle.the engine management light has nothing to do with the airbag light,what saying is that you got two different problems,i think you need to disconnect the battery for a while,reconnect and check if lights is of, if it re-appears plse then hook up to a scanner to read the code"s

Check engine light is on and nothing is wrong

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. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on. If you want to reset the light don't disconnect the battery cable, find a buddy with a code reader.
