This light will come on if you have a problem with the emissions system. Take it to a place like autozone and have them scan it for codes. list the codes here and we can help you out.

SOURCE: When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction

the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

2001 Mitsubishi Montero XLS with 110K...check engine soon light came on while sitting idle ...IS THIS A CONCERN? CAR RUNS AS NORMAL


the computer is sensing something is wrong. If running normal, dont worry about it. Check your gas cap, cross threading it is a common "check engine".These lights are also called dummy lights. They are very sensetive.

Service engine soon light stays on


Take it to a mechanic and have them run the diagnostic test (OBD2 port) to determine the issue. The codes they get from it will tell you what's wrong. Don't wait too long or your problem may compound your problem.

Service engine soon light came on and later that day turned off


The reason for the light to come on an the after you have switched the vehicle off and back on again and the engine light stays dead is because the control units of the vehicle will reset when the ignition is switched off for 10sec. If the light stays off the it might be that the car got a wrong reading from a sensor and caused the engine light to come on. If it was a serious problem the light would have come on again
