The check engine light is a general warning light used by GM that tells everyone nothing other than something needs to be checked. GM does this so as to get drivers to bring their cars to a dealership. It may mean an oil change or other routine service, but on the other hand it could mean something more involved or even serious. I personally don't like the GM attitudes even though I drive a Montana. sorry I could not be of more help.

SOURCE: Service Engine light on dash, will not turn off.

If your getting a service engine light on your dash there is something wrong with the engine, this light alerts you when a problem arises, you will need to find out what the problem is by reading the code output for the engine light with an obd tester, if you don't have one you can buy one, or you can try taking it to an auto parts store some places will read the code for you at no cost.

yes and no disconnect the battery both sides, now without touching the battery touch black to red wires, this resets any codes. if the light comes back on you will need a pcm scan to get any error codes from it.

HI, this is a check engine light,. i would advise to run a diagnostic scan on the engine asap. this will expose the actual issue, and it will also reveal the necessary repair options you will need to apply to correct this matter as well.

Possible causes are usually a defective or damaged sensor circuit of some sort...

The thermostat has stuck open. Or you are low on coolant becasue of a leak somewhere. Either way once it sets the code you will need to fix it to make it not set again. The t stat is not easy it's not the one on top of the engine it's on the side behind the alternator.
Also make sure the water pump doesn't have any play. Grab onto the the fan and move it front and back, If there is a clunking feeling or you can see it move alot then you need to replace that also.
Just make sure it's not running when you try and grab the fan. LOL

Engine light on


No the service engine or check engine light means there is a problem with the performance of the engine or the emissions components.
You would need to have the computer scanned for trouble codes to proceed. Most auto parts stores can do it for free in hopes of selling you some parts.
You can look the codes up online.

On dash board the "service


Hi, please have the car scanned at your local parts chain and send us the trouble codes. We must have the specific codes beginning with a "P" and followed by 4 digits to help you.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Engine block amber light


sounds like your check engine light is on. On 99ish 3 series the check engine light was an amber engine in the instrument cluster. I thought 5 series actually said service engine soon. If you cycle your key the bulb check should illuminate all lights. see if you have a light that says service engine soon, if not, the amber engine, is the check engine light.

Engine oil light is showing on the dash board after switching on


Most important thing you need to do is to establish the actual oil pressure. put a mechanical gauge on the engine and read real oil pressure. If pressure is low (min is 15psi, I prefer to see at least 20 at idle) there is an internal problem...bearings etc. If pressure is good, sending unit has failed...replace it. I would not drive it 'till the oil pressure is verified as being safe. You might get lucky and someone just forgot to plug in the sending unit, but it must be checked!!!
good luck
