What does service soon A mean? Oil changed last week.


Bring your car down to autozone store or an auto part store that will diagnose engine lights or service lights for free.
It could be something else that needs looked.
Normally. The oil change shops reset the service light for you.
Hope it helps

RED LIGHT INDICATING OIL SERVICE


Hi. The oil service light in red indicates that the vehicle is over due for a vehicle service..OIL SERVICE.. If you don't have it done, it could all go wrong. Have the light reset after Service and then it will monitor for your next service.bye for now.

Why would my service engine soon light be on


  • Hi, I can help.
  • The service Engine Light Soon light means it's time for an oil change,

  • You can turn this light off real quick by following these steps.
  1. Turn the key to ACC.
  2. Press the gas pedal down all the was three times in fairly rapid succession.
  3. The service engine soon light will begin to blink and then disappear.
  4. Turn the key to off.
  5. now start your truck.
  6. The light will now be off.
  • This should be done after every oil change.
  • All the light means is that the PCM has indicated that you have driven the required miles for an oil change. A reminder light if you will.

  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

Regards, Tony

I just got my 2003 Cadillac deville..any everything was great..about a week after I got the car I took it Thur the car wash and out the blue the service engine light came on...what can that possibly...


A service engine light means it's time for an oil change. That light needs reset after the oil is changed. The computer senses the miles drove automatically and says "change my oil, it's been 3,000 miles" A CHECK engine light means it has to get a scan done. Change the oil, it will be fine. It is suppose to do that. Let me know if this helps you.

Service engine soon light on. failed aircare.showing code po341 .


The service engine light DOES NOT mean change your oil. The change oil or maintence required light means change oil. The service engine light is the same as a check engine light and means that there is something (not always really bad) is going on with your motor and need someone that has a code reader to let you know what the code is. Yes that code is a camshaft position sensor code. It is located on the passenger side of the engine in the "valley" between the two cyclinder heads. Its not too hard as long as you have some tools and some skills. Its easiest to remove the serpentine belt and remove the bolts for the power steering pump. That way you can move the pump a little to gain better access to remove the cam sensor. Just replaced one yesterday on a 99 century. Hope that helps!
