Warning engine light

I have a 2006 Impreza manual sedan. Recently the engine warning light comes on and stays on. I took the car to my mechanic and they plugged in the computer and it said it was a neutral switch error. They reset it and it went away for about 2 weeks. Now its back on. What could this be ?

    depending on the year, the switch is from bringing on the VVT, so when in neutral the vvt is not active, so therefore not misfiring, you can also get a fault code P301, misfire No1 cyclinder, bit this is caused by the vvt and switch

I could not find a code for the neutral switch . The neutral safety switch only works when you start the vehicle, so it will not start in gear. I would take the car to another shop for a second opinion.

I recently replaced the engine on my Citroen c4 2005 model, now the warning lights stay on, the engine overheat, abs and anti pollution warning lights stay on.


The problem for engine overheating rise due to insufficient refrigerant. Try recharging the refrigerant tank with fresh refrigerant and water. If the refrigerant in the tank is of poor quality then also engine overheat.

The reason for ABS light to come may be due to air in the brake fluid line. Try brake bleeding to remove the air bubbles. Also the faulty brake actuator line may cause the problem. Check for actuators on each wheel.

Pollution warning light comes on if the exhaust system not works properly. Check for faulty Oxygen sensor or faulty catalytic convertor.

Both the engine lights and the VSC warning light appeared on the dash simultaneoulsy this evening while driving - what might this be?


Had this happen to my '05 Vibe (Matrix evil clone) recently. Mechanic read & reset codes. The non-flashing Engine light showed 2 large emission leaks. The VSC could be any number of things. He said hopefully it was a false positive on the VSC... potentially expensive to fix. Lights stayed off for a couple weeks & are now back on. I'm planning on seeing him later today. Also, said stability light stayed off, it is still working. fwiw...

2006 Subaru Impreza. Oil warning light stays on dimly when starting from cold but fades as engine warms up to normal running temperature. I did an oil and filter change about 2 weeks ago. Oil level on...


No, just keep an eye on it to see it does not start staying on longer and longer. The oil pressure sensor my be a little off,and at worse the oil pump is a little weak. Just keep up on the oil changes.3500 miles max.
