Check engine lite stays on

I have a 1998 Plymouth Breeze, 2.0. The check engine lite stays on steady all the time. The other day I was driving it and it started running real rough like it was going to die. I shut it off and started it back up and it ran fine. It is still running ok. But the check engine lite is still on.

    I had not thought of disconnecting the battery to solve this problem however, The light has been coming on now for a few days, and oddly enough we had a cold snap and my battery went bad. So I just but a new battery in it the other day. When I hooked the new battery up the lite was still on. So I guess I am going to have to take it to the shop. Thanks for your thoughts on this matter.

If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute and reconnect it the check engine lite will reset. when you start your vehicle again the lite shouldn't be on unless the problem is still present. If the problem is still there the lite will come on again and you should take it in to a shop and have it diagnosed for engine codes and see what the problem is.
Try disconnecting the battery first though before you go spending great amounts of money on something that was probably just a minor glitch in the computer.

Bets of luck and let me know if this has helped you.

Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

98 plymouth breeze.. i was driving my car and when i started to slow down the car jerked real hard and the check engine light came on. What could it be?

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Since your check engine light is on, you need to have it scanned at Autozone or Advanced. It is on because your computer detected a problem with the car. To be honest, there are a hundred different things that can cause this light to come on. They will scan it for free and they can tell you exactly why it is on. By doing it this way, you will save time and money because you won't be guessing at parts and waisting money on parts you don't need.

Probably an output transmission sensor not always as bad as it sounds. Usually if there is a problem they go to a default gear 2nd or third so you can get to a garage. Just get a scanner on it then you will know.

Hi my name is Allen!

When the check engine light is on this means there is a problem somewhere in the powertrain control system, which could be almost anything.

Here is what I need you to do, drive your vehicle to AutoZone or another auto parts store near you and have them pull the codes for you. Then get back to me and let me know what those codes are, and what the scanner say the code means.

We will move further with repair procedure after I know what the code or codes are.

Waiting for your reply!

Timing belt has nothing to do with fuel issue. If you're only running on 2 need to find out if spark is missing from those cylinders. Also possible that when the timing belt was replaced, it was not timed properly which can bend a valve, causing rough running.
