    I had the same problem and the manual said if it hasn't been driven in awhile to fill gas tank full 3 x's and tighten gas cap...it worked for me. I added bottle of fuel injector cleaner to first tank & used premium gas. If that doesn't work stop by auto parts store and have them use the sensor (free of charge) to diagnose and clear codes...fix any issues the sensor detects...they will clear codes for you and light will go off.

The service light means something is wrong with the car and it needs attention now. Get the codes checked and that will tell you what is wrong with it.

SOURCE: how to clear code service engine soon 2002

you need to use an OBDII scan tool that will read any "error" codes and give you the system that will be causing the check engine light to come on. this tool will also allow you to erase the code after you have read it. write the code down as you may have to pinpoint exactly what part may have failed and needs replacing. something as simple as a loose gas cap will cause the check engine light to come on. it could be any of a dozen different emission or ignition sensors that may be bad depending on the error code. all 1996 and newer vehicles sold in the US will have the OBDII system and standard diagnostic/data link connector,which is usually under the driver side of the dash, to plug the scan tool into to read the DTC's(diagnostic trouble codes).

If your service engine light is on that means that you can find the problem by having a local garage run an engine diagnostics test,it usually runs around 50 bucks and is much easier than trying to find the problem yourself,and most of the time it is cheaper !

with the key on engine off listen to fuel pump,if you can not hear the pump winning ,the pump is bad

if you can hear it,it might be working but create enough pressure
