If ou fixed whatever happened during the oil change, the light will cycle off after about 3 drive cycles.

The check enine light just tells you that you are not meeting emissions right now. Only be concerned if it's flashing. That means you are sending unburned fuel to your catalytic converter whih will overheat and self destruct.

Look for a vacuum hose disconnected and check all the onnections to sensors such as, vehcile speed control sensor, mass air flow sensor, crankshaft position sensor, camshaft poition sensor, throttle position sensor, etc. Good luck.

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.

'service engine soon' light


I think that is scan tool only but most mechanics have the scanners these days so it will be a lot cheaper to go to your local mechanic instead of the dealer. It prob wasn't reset last service if the light wasn't on at time of service.

The service engine soon light indicates a problem.
Take the vehicle to AutoZone and have them read the computer code.
They can give you an idea of what the problem is and reset the light for you.

I have 27000 miles on my Nissan Sentra (2006) 1.8S. For the last 3 months the "service engine soon light" has been staying on. I checked the gas cap, which clicked. But the light stays on. ...


Its telling you that you have a recommended service coming up at 30K miles. The dealer will reset the light when you bring the car in. Nissan recommends you to do your maintence's every 7500 miles. A 30K service will consist of an oil change, change air filter, coolant flush, replace PCV valve, in cabin air filter, along with checking many other systems in your vehicle. Hope this helps.

Just had oil change done on my 2000 alero now my service engine soon light is on.I want to know what this means


It simply means that the service indicator was not reset when the oil was changed. If the oil was changed professionally, then resetting the service indicator is usually part of the job.

It's not just a reminder to change the oil, it's also there to remind you to check/adjust/lubricate/replace other items such as the air filter, oil filter, spark plugs, fuel filter, dampers (UK=shock absorbers) etc.

The service indicator is simply a dumb counter keyed to mileage and time elapsed and cannot sense when you have completed a service. Resetting the indicator requires a special tool so you'll need to take your car to a suitably equipped garage.

SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHTCAME ON. iT HAS 76000


The computer probably needs to be reset. there is a procedure for it somewhere but the quick easy way is to just disconnect the battery for a few minutes, This usually resets the computer and solves intermittant issues. Also, the air conditioning may be as simple as replacing the cabin air filter. My 2000 Lincontinental had the same issue only it would blow hot air. A local ripoff mechanic charged me 250.00 to look at the a/c after he cut a line into and had to replace it at my cost. he said I needed a new system for $1700.00. I walked away without using his "service" Later I checked the air cabin filter and found it was completely clogged. I replaced it for $30.00 and the air started blowing cold immediately. The cabin air filter is located under the hood. The plastic trim that is under the windshielf wipers has air channels in it. On the left side is where the cabin air filter is located. The best way to do it is to get someone else to change it at one of these quick lube places.

How it reset service engine light


Is it the "oil change req." light? Your owners manual will have the process for reseting the oil change light.
If it is "service engine soon" light, the vehicle will need to be scanned with a professional scanner.
