What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge


Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

After starting transmission won't move out of park


It sounds like if this is a car with the brake interlock, meaning the car will not shift from park unless the brake is pressed, there is a malfunction there, some are electronic and it may not be getting power to it especially if there are other warning lights on the dash. It would help if you could give more details, like which lights are on. Most cars with a mechanical interlock will have a cable you can adjust either at the brake cable or at the shifter.

Service vehicle soon like comes on after 25 minutes of running then it locks out my radio and causes the security light to also come on. I've had it on 3 different scopes & was told the codes were


I don't know who told you that , a semi- clogged catalytic will cause a low power issue an maybe a couple of DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes P0420 - P0430 ,Has nothing to do with the alarm system ! Do you mean Service vehicle soon or SERVICE ENGINE SOON ?
SERVICE VEHICLE SOON
The IPC illuminates the SERVICE VEHICLE SOON indicator in the message center when the PCM or the BCM detects certain non-emissions related malfunctions. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM or from the BCM requesting illumination. What problem are you having with alarm system ? If you have a starting issue it's the Anti-Theft system not alarm system . The alarm would go off if you vehicle was broke into . I don't know what shop you took it to but did you try a dealer ?

Check Engine or
Malfunction indicator light (MIL)
The Check Engine or Service Engine Soon light or an icon resembling the engine is called, in technical terms, the Malfunction Indicator Light or MIL. The MIL light comes on when your vehicle's computer detects a fault that can affect your vehicle's fuel economy and emissions. There is no button to reset the Check Engine light, but if the fault that caused it doesn't happen again, the light will turn off by itself. If the MIL light stays on, have the problem checked out, because in some cases, the problem could get worse if not repaired in time. Think of the Check Engine light as an early warning sign. To check why your MIL light came on, your dealer or mechanic will have to diagnose your car with a special scan tool.

Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed.

Service engine soon light came on, what would cause it to come on


a service engine soon(SES) light, malfunction indicator light(MIL) or check engine light coming on means you have one or more error codes in the powertrain control module(PCM). these will need to be scanned or read with an OBDII code reader to determine what the problem is. most likely an emissions sensor has failed. but this could be any of a dozen or more sensors or meters causing the light to come on, and once you have the error code you need to pinpoint the failed part. hope this helps, good luck!

Service Engine Soon


wandeeful: what has occurred, is something within the powertrain management system had malfunctioned. It may had occurred even for a brief moment. There will be a code stored in the computer which will tell what had tripped the light.
Once the scan is completed, then what need to be done will be known.
You can get the car scanned for free at
Auto Zone or "O" Reiley's
