Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera

1 Answer

Service engine will not go off even after servicing

Service engine light came on about a year ago, and will not go out. No matter what has been done. I had the battery disconnected after replacing a part, it went out for all of 6 minutes then came back on. Could this be a fuse (guage fuse), or the wiring for that particular part of the car???? Where I live (TX) you have to pass inspection yrly, and with that on it I cant pass the test. HELP!!!!!!!

You need to have the codes read with a obdii code reader,some parts stores will test it for free. Once you know what in making the light come on you can repair it accordingly (they are fairly inexpensive to buy approx 60.00 for a mediocre one and it will test codes on foreign and domestic vehicles 1996- 2003 or so)
hope this helps.......Good Luck!

My Saturn L300 2002 has the wrench service light come and it drives good


You should be able to have an auto parts store check the engine computer for trouble codes. The codes would direct a mechanic as to what to check next.

I assume you resolved the issues by now

Check lights have been on all vehicles for 31 years,
so you shouldn't be asking about them

Does not matter what light comes on your dash

The procedure is always the same
Check for codes
Diagnose & repair code related issues first

Hi check it out. You may need to replace your speed sensor. I was having the same problems a year ago and my speed sensors finally went all the way out. Now my light doesnt come on anymore and the car runs better.

Service engine light


Light came on due to the engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your engine sensors, will have to get a code reading to know what's going on, most auto parts will do this service for free or some one like autozone, have it done and get back with us with the code number, so we can help you with your trouble code.

What is the recommended service for 2004 chevy


Service your cooling system every 5 years or 150,000 miles. The GM Dex Cool has a life of 5 years or 150,000 miles which ever comes first. Replace the thermostat also and buy the fail safe thermostat, it cost a bit more but worth it.

Service the engine (spark plugs and wire) every 100,000 miles or till engine management prompt attention. (service engine light DTC code)

Service the transmission every 3 years or 60,000 miles, replace the transmission oil and filter. Transfer case fluid and differential fluid.

Service the engine oil and filter every 6 months or 3,000 miles. Lube Chassis

Service the air filter and cabin air filter, wiper blades every 15,000 miles or once a year.

Alot of times a voltage drop to the O2 Sensor can cause your check engine light to come on. Even tho the O2 sensor is wrong fine.

Service engine light


Hello, Not being a Ford man myself but have reset many service interval lights, Try holding down either trip meter button or odometer reset whilst turning on the ignition. You may need to hold it down for 10/20 seconds. If unsure do what I've done in the past hold down all buttons on speedo face.
Good Luck and Happy New Year to you and your family!
