Take your car to shop and have them hook a scanner to your computer. Your computer in your vehicle has senses a problem and will not go off until it is cleared. You can buy a generic OBD !! scanner for a hundred dollars and pull the codes yourself if you are mechanically inclined. they are a simple plug in scanner. Auto parts stores may pull the codes for you too.

2001. Why is it hard to start at times?


If the service engine soon light is on ,have you had it checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ? When is it hard to start , first time you start it in the morning , or any time , randomly ? You should have a diagnostic scanner hooked up to check engine sensor data parameters .

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.

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.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. What does it mean when the anti brake light, service engine soon, and traction off light comes on at the same time?


I am assuming its not the service engine soon light it is probably the service vehicle soon light, There are 2 lights service vehicle soon upper left side, and service engine soon upper right side.

When all these come on at the same time it is the wheel bearing sensor. Usually the wheel bearing needs to be replaced which houses the sensor. A sure way to check is to press your sls button by your shifter and see if the light goes out, If it does not, u will need to have a wheel bearing put in.

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

Service Engine Soon light came on


This means it's time for a service..But have it diagnosed with a computer and maybe sometimes resetting it solves this problem.If the light comes back again then you need a servicing of the engine.

Service engine soon


hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.
