Question about Cars & Trucks
The engine management system light remains on when the car is started. The engine seems to be running ok.
The engine light is usually associated with the emissions system. You will have to track down which one is bad and replace to get the light to go off.

There is a strong chance that one of the stator rings on the rear driveshaft has broken away. They are located on the end of the rear driveshafts and after time they get corroded and will drop off. The ring is part of the hall effect sensor so when the wheel rotates there is no signal from wich ever side is broken thus throwing up an error.
Easiest way to check is to remove both wheels and look where the driveshaft slides into the hub from the rear and check the condition of the ring wich looks like a ladder. If its not there or sections are missing there is your problem.
There is a kit that you can buy wich changes the end of the shaft rather than the whole driveshaft.

Hello and welcome to Fixya!
You may just need a maintenance check, like an oil change. Try it and observe how it goes. Try to remove the positive battery connector too, let it sit for atleast 5mins. then reconnect it. This can reset the car's computer and get rid of the check engine light.
Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!
