SOURCE: Engine malfunction light stays on

On any car that is 1996 or newer after a repair is made you must hook up a obd2 scanner or code reader to your cars computer and clear the trouble codes some auto part stores can do this at no charge. Autozone is 1 place that will do it for free. if you dont have a place near you . It can be done by unhooking the battery for a few minutes but clearing the codes with a scanner is best. If after having that done the light returns there is still a problem

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially go on

Sounds like a loose or burnt wire going from the transmission to the engine. Please try to remember who changed the oil last and ask them if they will look for a loose or burnt wire. The professional oil changers get in a hurry and might have hit an important wire to the transmission. How many miles would help answer the question more thoroughly.

How to fix Toyota Landcruiser "Malfunction Indicator Lamp Light"

Common problems that can cause the Check Engine light to come on In older cars, it was typically something like a bad oxygen sensor, faulty mass airflow sensor, failed catalytic converter, worn-out spark plugs, ignition wires, a loose gas cap or a clogged-up EGR system. Newer cars have a lot more electronics, which means, many other things could go wrong too. It's practically impossible to find the problem without at least scanning the vehicle and retrieving the stored code(s). On the other hand, once you know the code that caused your Check Engine light, it's not that difficult to do some research and find out common problems for your car's make and model that can cause the particular code.

2007 new Beetle cabrio. Check engine light comes on when I turn on the A/C system, if I don't put A/C on then the check engine light stays off?????

Hi there,

Your vehicle is fitted with an On Board Diagnostic computer, which monitors all engine activity & transmission behaviour.

The engine electronics are also connected to the Air Con system (idle compensation etc), so it's likely that a malfunction in the A/C system has triggered the Engine Check light.

You will need to have your vehicle's Diagnostic computer read for fault codes, which will identify where the malfunction lies.
