Sometimes it will. Have the code read. You can do this yourself at advance auto for free. The OBD reader will tell you what the problem is and help you determine the best way to have it fixed. The code reader will also allow you to clear the code and reset the check engine light.

SOURCE: 2003 aviator check engine on why? car has brand

There is no way to know why that light is on without a Scan. There are hundreds of codes in the cars today especially with the luxury cars that have body control computers.

Try taking it to an Advance auto or Autozone. They will usually scan if for free and that will give you a place to begin to answer your question. The radio problem I believe is unrelated. In my years of experience I have not seen the radio make the CE light come on. The CE light relates only to safety or emissions.

Hope this helps. Get the code and post it and someone will help you figure it out.

SOURCE: Engine Light is on when i drive

You'll have to run diagnostics on it. An analyzer is connected to the car through a cable and it analyzes the computer and spits out codes that tell you why the light is on. Auto shops do this, or you can purchase a home diagnostic analyzer at an auto parts store.

SOURCE: ESC light came on when driving - then check engine light

Likley there is a misfire in one of the cylinders. Usually due to worn out sparkplugs or wires. A check by the local mechanic, using his/her computor will pinpoint the problem. Or go to your local auto supply store & purchase the little computor to connect to your car computor (under dash at steering wheel). This will allow you to turn off the light. Cost is about $170.00 (Can.)
Hope this helps!

Many times check engine lights are disabled to prevent them coming on. Turn the ignition on without starting the engine, the light should be on. Most auto parts stores will do an OBS2 check free to diagnose problems.

Check engin light stays on. Starts fine runs


Most common cause of engine lights is either an air fault such as air flow meter or air mass sensor. there are others but if the car is driving fine then most likely an air fault.

Check the air sensor sometimes they just need a clean up rather than replacement.
Let me know if you need more info.

Trac off and check engine light for lexus es 300 check engine & trac control off lights & engine stutters while revving in park. Engine seems fine in drive... Reset lights without them returning...


A week ago, on my Lexus ES 300 (2001), "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights came on. This coincided with me filling the gas tank to the brim to round the dollar to be paid. I cleaned the gas tank cap and the tank opening. However, both lights persisted. On the same day, when I turned on the car again, there was a hesitance, a stuttering to come on. Both "Check Engine" and "Trac Off" lights were still on.

The next day, the car wouldn't come on at all. It sounded as the battery was dead. I couldn't even jump start the car. So, I got a new battery from Costco ($59) and put it in. It took 15-20 seconds of cranking to get the car started. Once it was started, the engine sounded fine and the RPM normal. The "Check Engine" light was off. However, the "Trac Off" was still on. I cleaned the gas tank cap one more time.

The next morning, when I turned the car on, there was no problems. It came on instantly as it used to be, didn't have any warning lights, and drove smoothly.

2009 ford fusion engine light stays on steady


You just have to disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour. then reconnect and drive for 10 miles so computer can relearn your engine again. It may run rough. You should have the key off when refueling because computer sensed a fuel vapor leak during fueling and turned the light on.

Also, you can always drive with a check engine light on. It just means you are not meeting emissions. Do not drive if it's flashing on and off.
