Check engine soon light is on, in my 2002 Lancher. What does it mean?

The yellow "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light is an informational indication to you to let you know that the computer has detected a problem with the engine that needs to be checked.

If a RED indication - this means that the there is a problem the requires immediate attention. This usually means shutting off the engine and stopping for the case of a RED oil, temperature, brake, etc message.

The yellow indication means that the engine has a problem that is not noticeable to you - at least at first - but left unchecked could result in costly repairs. Many of the problems associated with this YELLOW indicator are related to fuel & emmissions systems, such as faulty oxygen sensor, fuel sensor, mis-firing, low engine temperature, and much, much more. These can cause fuel economy to suffer and very hot exhaust components or even failure of the catalytic converter. Drive the car to wherever you're going - but make appointment to have it checked out. Many Auto parts stores such as Auto Zone will be happy to use their tool to "scan" the fault code stored in the computer. This code will help you narrow down the problem and potentially save you from having your mechanic simply tighten your gas cap (and yes - a loose gas cap can trigger this light!).

I hope this helps and good luck!

VSC and Malfunction Indicator came on and stays on

When you say malfunction indicator , do you mean `check engine`` light.
These paired lights can indicate a change in engine air flow and fuel mixture. Try a fresh tank of premium fuel, but first a unscrew and re-screw the gas cap until it ratchets into place. The lights can be triggered by a loose gas cap, a fouled O2 sensor, and several other emission related problems including sticking throttle body components, etc.
This can sometimes be sprayed with carb cleaner inserted in the snorkle area of the air intake where teh snorkle meets the metal intake.

What does it mean when the dashboard indicator

that is your 'check engine' light.if it stays on, one or more sensors on your engine has sent a 'trouble code' to the on-board computer.a diagnostic code reader needs to be connected to it to determine the cause.
