Your engine light can come on for about a million reasons. Its best to go to a part store most have computers and some will hook up your car at no charge and tell you the code its showing.

sometimes this can be simply you didn't tighten your gas cap all the way. Remove your gas cap, then put it back on and be sure it clicks 3 times. The engine light will not go out right away, it takes a few trips out, around 3-4, hope this is helpful. Good luck

2003 chev suburban starts & runs but the light in the dash that shows the lock & the car remains on. I recently changed the ignition switch, could it just need reprogramming?

If you just have a light on the dash on go to autozone and they will extract the codes and tell you what's wrong before spending money where you don't have to!

I had the exact same problem last year with my 2001 Alero 3.4L V6. It turned out to be that most of the copper strands in the multi-strand ground wire were broken, in the wiring harness passing over the transmission on the way to the fuel pump behind the fuel tank. The same ground wire is shared with several of the warning gages on the dash, causing several to remain lighted all the time. Both of the check engine lights, the brake light, the low oil light, and ABS light would all remain on all the time. Once the frayed portion of the ground wire above the transmission was repaired, the lights stayed out and the car started running normal, with the fuel now actually pumping gas under continuous high pressure to the engine.

The check indicator on my dash just came on. The manual says is a malfunction indicator lamp. Car is running okay. Thanks

Does the indicator look like an engine? If it does you should get the code checked at a local auto parts store or local mechanics shop. Did you recently put gas in the car? If you put gas in the car and dont tighten the fuel cap all the way you can get a check engine light. It will throw an evaporative emisiions code.

1990 buick no start turn key dash lights go out and all is dead

When you say "turn key dash lights go out and all is dead", do the lights come back on when you turn the key back to "off"?
With key off, try turning on your headlights- are they bright?
Flip to high beams-do they get brighter?
**If lights get dim while trying this, it's the battery-(dead/needs charged or replaced-which may have been caused by a bad alternator).
Leave lights on, now turn your ignition switch to "on"-do the lights get dim or go out?
Try and start the car-anything change?
If the lights were fine until you tried to start the car, more than likely your battery terminals need cleaning/tightening.
The lights should at least get dim when you try and start the car but only while the starter turns over: when the engine is running your lights (as well as all your other electrics) are powered by the alternator.
If you do all this and lights are okay all through this procedure, your problem is probably in your starter circuit. (Starter relay, ignition/key switch)

Hope this helps.
