Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Some codes are minor, but if no solved can lead to other problems. I recommend having it diagnosed.

The light is telling u that you have a fault in the electronic controls of your engine, emission or transmission, very seldom do u feel anything in the way the van runs, take the van to any Kragen or Autozone parts store and ask for them to run an OBD 2 trouble code test, it is free, record the codes and post them back on this thread

    most likely this will covered under your emission system warranty, (70,000 miles) check with the dealer, they may charge a testing fee, but if it turns out to be a covered problem that will be waived.

Looking for what lights need come on when I turn the key to on in a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country Touring I am thinking of buying. A layout would be nice ...


The main things to look for are your Malfunction Indicator Light (also known as "Check Engine" light), your Antilock Brake warning light and your Airbag warning light. These are the things that will indicate if there are expensive repairs needed.

It might be a good idea to study the Owner's manual a bit so you know what you are looking for and where things are located.

In my 2005 honda accord check engine light come on i went to mechanic and he reset the light after few days light come agian


Your check engine light means that your computer thinks that there is something wrong with one of your systems. It is producing a code for the problem, but you can not read the code unless an OBD-II scanner is plugged into the OBD socket under your dashboard. Autozone, or another of the same sort, would be happy to hook their scanner up to your car and tell you what the computer is saying is wrong. There is not charge.
Hope this helps you.
