The engine light is comming on because there is a fault in the electronics of your engine, transmission or emission system, there are over 200 faults that can turn the light on, u will need to have the system scanned to see what fault code was stored with the check engine light.

Check engine light and AT light came on

First, double check that the gas cap is good and tight. Sounds silly, but sometimes a loose gas cap will cause the check engine light to come on. Failing that, take the car to someone who can read the codes. You might have a bad or lazy O2 sensor but the codes are the quickest way to tell.

Light just comes why seems to run fine

You did not give any information about the model of vehicle or what light came on but i suggest that you check your oil level,coolant level,brake fluid level and also make sure the gas cap is tight.Other than that,if the check engine light has come on then you need to get the codes read,with an obd2 reader unless it is pre 1996,then you will need a dealer to look at it.

if the light is on steady you need to get it scanned for dtc's (diagnostic trouble codes) a lot of times it is an evap system code. you may want to ck. gas cap tightness. but the light is a warning light that could be on for any number of reasons. sorry i couldnt be more help. if the gas cap was loose the light will go out after 3 drive cycles with out a problem.

'07 Tahoe; check engine light on steady. Just came

Have a dealer or garage check your Oxygen (O2) sensor. As a quick fix, try disconnecting and reconnecting your car battery. Sometimes this will reset the check engine light.Good Luck!

Check engine light went on

Some auto parts stores (like AutoZone) will diagnose the code for the check engine light for free. If the vehicle is running fine it may be something as simple as a bad oxygen sensor.

2007 KIA Sportage check engine light just came on and now stays on all fluid levels are good

Had a similar problem and took it to the dealer - it is a defect which is common to a range of Kia Sportage. Eventually, the engine will not start.
The manufacturer paid for an engine replacement.

2002 kia rio rxv check engine light came on again..

the check engine light is not caused by any wrong fluid level or dirty air filter or anything else like that, it is caused by well over 100 faults that can occur in the computer controlled electronic engine and emission controls, u will need to go to a Kragen or Autozone parts store and get a free OBD 2 fault code test to get the code that set your light.
