I would take it to have the codes brought up to make sure . You have not described a problem other than that. Leads me to believe an emission part could be bad. Most parts stores read these for free and are willing to give a printout. They are helpful to determine why it stays on.

Abs light permenantly on cant find speed sencers kia sportage 2001

You need to take it to a repair shop


Because only their equipment will access the ABS Module

Not a generic code reader

You need a scan tool & Enhanced Mode, to access the ABS
Module & see what the codes & issues are

Forget the throwing parts at the unknown, because a code
has a name that sounds like a part failed

Codes have nothing to do with replacing parts

You can get a check engine light on your dash,have codes
& have no problems at all

2001 ford taurus Have a constant leak oil light has been on for weeks 3 days ago car would not turn on went to auto advance to get the battery check; replace battery car still shut off, permenantly f

There are some simple kits which have a glowing fluid which can be seen with a UV ultraviolet light supplied in the kit.

You add the glowing liquid to the engine, run the motor, and inspect the drips for the leak location. Then you fix that bad part.

Now sometimes the sending units do leak. But any gasket or seal can leak just as well.

Do not run the engine with the oil light on. Check your oil level constantly. No oil=no engine.

Can not speculate on battery problem from info provided.

Most likely problem is the neutral safety switch coming apart. There may be additional problems. Get a scan of the computer and post the trouble codes.

My is lexus battery went flat, 1 of the cells in the battery went, got a new battery fitted it, and now some of the fuses have blown, the radio, central locking, rear lights, dashboard dont work, any ideas

The first think you need to check is to see if the engine ground strap assembly is corroded, this can cause a electrical nightmare, as the lexus is greatly dependent upon the system for every function, DO NOT fool around with alternating components, you may cause a fire or other permenant damage. have the system scanned for a GF.

I got a 92 acura integra it won't start I check the timing belt an the car is on time. I replace the main relay and it still won't start. it seems that I'm not getting any sparks in the fuel and I replace...

the check engine light means there is a permenant code, what you need to do is get a scanner and check it. also could be a crank position sensor. But I would get the check engine light checked first. And the car will most likely have to go to a shop.

Emissions warning light stays illuminated while driving vehicle is a holden vectra 2001 and not oldsmobile as below. could not find a listing for holden.

The warning light has two states. A blinking light indicates a critical problem with gaseous emissions from the engine that is likely to cause permenant damage to the engine, exhaust sytem or catalytic converter. A blinking light must be remedied immediately, and the car should not be driven in this state, at the risk of causing serious and permenant damage to the engine, exhaust and/or catalytic converter. Repairing or replacing these parts can be extremely expensive. A reputable garage or a Vauxall/Opel garage should be able to diagnose and repair the problem.

A solid (unblinking) light indicates a non-critical fault in the emmisions exhaust system. Many faults are covered by this light including failures in emssions sensors, temperature sensors and a variety of other parts. This usually results in a higher than average amount of environmentally harmful pollutants being expelled from the car, loss of power and/or gradual damage to the engine, exhaust and catalytic converter. While the car can still be driven with a non-critical emmisions problem, it is highly recommended that the fault is diagnosed and repaired at a reputable garage or Vauxhall/Opel garage.

I have a jaguar 2003 that have a check engine light on. I have change the O2 sensor bank 2 but the light is still on. The vehicle is driving fine.

I assume you have cleared all the fault codes (eg. P0150 - P0167) and the Jaguar generic code (eg: P1000)?

Often the problem is that you know you have fitted the part - but the car's computers don't know and so they have to be 'told'.

Clearing the DTC codes is relatively easy with a decent Code Reader (EOBD CAN) but the Jaguar Generic code is sometimes not so easy as there is a road test sequence that often has to be performed before the 'Engine Light' (MIT) goes out permenantly.

A local MOT Garage often has a Code Reader gadjet and charges around a modest £30 to sort it.
