    I have had the check engine light come on for 2 months now. The constant code I'm getting is a slow response to the front O2 sensor. This sensor was changed out once and in 4 days (approx 100 miles), the light came back on again. The mechanic ran the test again after the code gave him the same condition. This time he pulled all the grounds and cleaned them and sent me on my way. 2 days later, the same thing and code. Change the O2 sensor again. 2 days later, the same issues. Okay change out the battery cables. 2 days later, the same issues. Now we have a Hyundai issued O2 sensor. I'm crossing my fingers. Anyone else have this problem? Or maybe give me suggestions to fix this. The car seems to be running fine.............HELP!!

Probably a sensor.Take it to your local auto store -they will usually pull the error codes from the computer for free(then they can sell you the part) its alot cheaper than a dealer and usually a pretty easy job. Pair it with a chilton repair manual and keep saving money by doing it yourself. @ auto stores or online..good luck (no i am not a chilton salesman i just rely on them alot )

You will need to run the codes to find out for sure, but, if the car is still running ok then this is probably either a oxygen sensor not reading correctly or a light to tell you that it is time for an emission system check.

SOURCE: Engine warning icon on my dashboard indicates emission problem can I still drive my car until repaired

As long as the light is yellow and not red you are fine to drive . The yellow is just a caution light . If any red lights come on thats when you need to stop or not drive it

I doesn't matter what shape it is, what matters is that it goes out. all dashboards do a bulb check when you turn on the ignition; that tells you that those monitor systems are ready. a couple of them like oil pressure and charging voltage need the motor running in order to decide whether to shut off or stay on and warn you of a problem.

Yellow engine light has been on for 2 days but the car runs perfect. What could it be?


This is the Check Engine warning light (the light is required by law to be amber/yellow, it means that a problem or problems have been detected in the electronic engine control or the emission control system. this control system is called the OBD2 Electronic engine/emission control system. This system has over 200 possible faults that turn this warning light on, what needs to be done is to have the system scanned to see what fault codes are in the memory of the computer (called the PCM), it can be as easy as a defective or loose gas cap on up to Oxygen sensors failing, it is a long list, so the system scan is the very 1st thing that must be done to start the diagnosis.

Yellow engine light is on but car is running just fine.


The check engine light is a warning light that is telling you that something is failing. It usually means that there is something going on with emissions, but it can really be anything. Until you have it scanned there is noway of knowing exactly what the problem is. usually Autozone will scan it free of charge and tell you what the fault is.

Yellow engine warning light and car has rough idle


to get trouble codes you must hook up a test tool called a scanner, this interfaces with the computer in the car and pulls the codes from the computers memory.

Renault modus dashboard warning light 'check emissions' and rotten egg pong and lumpy drive. Car has done less than12K but did fill up at Asda previous evening before problem started.


Not necessarily catalytic convertor. this happened on mine recently and it just needed a coil replacing. Costs about £87 at a Renault garage if this is the case
