Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

That means you have a fault code picked up by the ECU of the engine. Use a scanner to connect it on the diagnostic socket and you will get the fault( s) and according to the fault you will work accordingly. Any need of help do not hesitate to ask.

The VSC and Traction Control require the engine to be at 100% in order to function correctly. As a fail safe these systems a disabled anytime the engine computer detects a fault. When they are disabled the lights are illuminated to let you know that they will no longer function. The true problem is with the check engine light. The engines computer has detected a problem with a sensor or system that it monitors or controls. You have three options to get the codes that will help you determine what's wrong 1. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. 2. You can call your local parts store to see if they can pull codes for you. 3. You can visit your local repair shop or dealer and have them perform a diagnosis. There is usually a set fee. They will pull codes, run some tests, and pinpoint the problem for you. Let me know what you figure out.

A wrench symbol is the equivalent to a check engine light. Take your car into a mechanic and let them diagnose the error code the engine light is storing to help diagnose the problem.
