This light indicates a mulfunction within the electronic engine controls.It monitors many items while some being not critical or noticeable to the driver.simple things like failing to install the fuel cap after filling can cause a service light due to codes stored for emmision vent systems.The best advice is to have engine diagnostics performed to pull trouble codes tripping that service lamp.

Why does my stabilitrak service light come on when I'm on the freeway?


Have a repair shop check for codes--- SOON---
& diagnose that system

There is no guessing at vehicle problems

Running fine is ---in your mind---

Your asking about a braking system issue,
not engine performance issue

Read your owners manual

Read anyone's owners manual

Obviously the vehicle has a problem,that has to be found,
& a solution found & you pay for all that & the repair

Service engine soon light


The service engine soon could be an indicator that you need to have minor maintenance done in the near future. I had a Grand Am that the service engine light would turn on when I was getting close to needing an oil change. You might check your owners manual for an exact reason as to why it turns on.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

I have a ford transit 02 plate, with no user manual. today a indicator came on displaying the oil sign with a spanner next to it. is this a service light as the normal oil light was ok and didnt light up


Sounds like a service engine soon light. Check owners manual for reset instructions. On our 99 Mercury , you had to push a combination of buttons on the trip computer / fuel economy select buton.

Engine compartment seems extemely warm but the engine temperture


service your vehicle soon as a precautionary measure. No warning lights, oil level and engine coolant temp ok then I wouldn't worry but follow the recommended service intervals in your owners manual

My oil light with a little wrench beside it came on this morning, I have a 2007 chevy trailblazer and I just had a oil change 1 month ago


If the service light is on in your TrailBlazer, open the door, turn the key to ignition position and push the accelerator pedal 5 times, the service light will flash. flash your high beams and you're done.
