    Did you try taking it to a local autozone and have them scan it for you?

Engine management light on car runs fine


Service engine soon or check engine light? Engine light needs scanned for codes. Service engine soon is for oil changes and such. To get rid of service lights, turn the key on, press the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The light will flash. turn the key off. it's reset. At least check or change the oil and filter though.

The Warning Light "Service engine soon" came on. We have a 2001 Mercury Sable. How many miles can the car be driven before dealer inspection?


This light means that the computer in the car has sensed a problem with something on the car. You should take the car to a local auto parts store and have them read the codes from the service engine light. Post the codes they give you here and we can help more. Most likely you wont hurt the car by driving it with that light on. Better to ba safe then sorry thought.

Service engine soon light keeps comming on


Have had the car serviced lately? Oil change, tune up, things of that nature? It may be time to do that stuff. Does that car have a "Service Engine Soon" light and a "Check Engine" light? If the car has been serviced recently and the "Service Engine Soon" light is coming on, it's because who ever serviced it, did not reset the light. To reset the light, this works on most GM cars, turn the ignition to the "on" position DO NOT START THE CAR!!! Now within 5 seconds push the gas pedal to the floor and release it 3 times. That should reset the light if that don't work, you may want see what it says in the owners manual. Or you may have to take it to a shop. If the "Check Engine" light is coming on then there is a problem with the vehicle and there should be a "code" in the computer. Most auto parts stores will put a scanner on your car and read the codes for free. Those lights are there for a reason, if ignore them your car will let you down.

Ford focus car engine light coming on knocking


Go to Orielly auto parts and rent their OBD scanner. If you takethe vehicle to them they wont charge you for the scanner. The dealer will charge you $100 or more to check it for you. Depending on how loud the knock is I would not recomend driving the vehicle until you scan it. Once you scan it write down the codes and Oriellys can translate them for you also.

Check engine light on,parked car for 2 weeks.tried to start it would not.checked starter and it is good.turns over at starter with screwdriver but wont crank.will not turn over at ignition switch.can...


Could be a few different things , check engine light likely has nothing to do with your problem.
1st thing to check is that the car in in PARK , it won't start if it isn't. Could be dirty contacts in the key ingition. ( where you put the key ) , car might have a fuse for the ignition , my neon did.
Damaged triger wire (the small one) at the solenoid. Good luck
