As long as the light is NOT flashing you can drive it. Take it to autozone or someplace like that for a free scan to see what is wrong

SOURCE: BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON ENGINE RUNNING BUT CAR WONT DRIVE

there is a button on your brake pedal lever that while braking gets depressed, and turns on your brake lights. Now this component is a plastic piece that can get knocked loose rather simply. You either need to re-secure this component, or replace it

(you can get this part at any junk yard for nothing more than some pocket change)

SOURCE: 1996 olds achieva check engine light remains on.

What were the codes??? 
Try this, turn the ignition key to the on position and pull the ECM fuse out for 10 seconds, then place it back in and start the car.
The car may stall and let it, just restart it the second time and things should be fine. It's just the ECM leaning the Engine and Transmission. 
The check engine light should be off and go for a test drive. If there is a problem the check engine light will go back on after you travel over i believe 5 MPH.

see if you have any oil level or pressure sensors. sometimes these can get gunked up. You may need a new oil pump. I suggest you start using a senthetic oil (valvoline,mobil 1 is reccomended) after u get the problem fixed.

I have changed both oxygen sensor and spacer also the coolant tempature sensor and the check engine light is still on in my 2005 Audi Quattro 1.8t what else could be wrong?


P0420 means that the catalytic converter is operating below efficiency threshold. Normally, you only get this code if both O2 sensors ARE OPERATING PROPERLY. If you change the O2 sensors and still get the same code, it's an indication your catalytic converter needs to be replaced. But before you replace it, ensure that everything else in the engine is operating properly, so that whatever may have damaged your current catalytic converter doesn't damage a new one.

I have a 1999 Volkswagen Microbus Exclusive 2.6I which runs on leaded petrol. Two months ago we filled the tank inadvertently with unleaded petrol. Now the vehicle jers in second gear. Has this got to


easy to check. look under the vehicle close to the manifold and if you see an oval shaped stainless steel containerther you most likely will have a c/c. next point if you use leaded in a unleaded vehicle it will affect the catalytic converter buy causing it to block up.next the oxygen senson may be contaminated and not sending the right readings to the cpu so the engine management system will be affected. Best have it checked at a dealer before you do any more damage.

I have 95,000 miles on my Grand Mercury LS car. Tonight my engine light came on with 1/2 tank of gas. I checked the gas cap (appeared okay - full tank fill up yesterday before my 175 mile road trip - no...


The check engine light is not a big cause for concern. Most of the time it relates to emmision controls or engine controls, but it will not die on you from one of these conditions. Simply get a auto parts store to pull the code for you and find out what is causing the light to come on. I know Autozone pulls codes for free, once you find out what is tripping the light we can go from there on fixing it. If you do manage to reset the light if the problem is still there the light will return. What happened earlier was the cars computer reseting and relearning the idle speed.

Oxygen Censor


The thermostat will not harm the sensor, but the entire engine control system is designed to operate at 210 degrees, therefore all sensors will not recieve proper information,,,end result may be improper mixture in the exhaust pipe, triggering o2 sensor fault reading!
