The check engine light turns on in vehicles for multiple reasons. It might not be your carburetor that has the problem. It also might be a chip error and just needs to be reset by an auto maintenance place.

I have a 2006 Mazda 3. The check engine light just turned on yesterday as I was returning home on the freeway. My car has 58950 miles, just had its oil changed a week and a half ago and got new tires 2...

first off, a tank of gas won't turn off the check engine light. But, I wold have someone check the problem using a OBD-II diagnostic tool. It will give you the error code that is causing the light to turn on, and that code will be directly linked to a specific problem. The OBD database which you can find online, will tell you the most likely causes and possible solutions. you can do this all by yourself by renting the OBD-II device at autozone, or by a mechanic or dealer. If the car is still under warranty, bring it to the dealer to check it out, and don't take "oh it's nothing, don't worry" for an answer. Dealers routinely do this until the warranty is up and charge you and arm and a leg for certified service. Make sure they do it right the first time.

Hope that helps, please rate me!

the most common is a bad cluster
you have to remove it
that could be a pain but it can be done
after removing the cluster remove the cardboard cover in the back remove circuit panel board and check in the middle for a broken weld here your question for your insterment panel
The Transmission Control Module (TCM) is not communicaring with the PCM.
Check all fuses. It could be a power or ground problem or a ccd bus communication wiring problem.
If not it's likely an internal failure in the TCM.
You may be able to get a schamatic at your local library.
If it's not a power, ground or wiring issue you should take it to a dealer with a DRB III to confirm the diagnosis.

Check engine light comes on because engine computer has detected a fault. It could be anything, from a cheap sensor to an important component out of specifications, to a service reminder. Most shops (not necessarily Honda dealers, ) have the diagnostic equipment to hook it up to your car and tell you what is wrong, before fixing anything. Usual rates for this diagnostic is below $100, including quote for repair.
