Check engine light

Most likely this is an O2 Sensor issue but to be sure take the vehicle to One of the major Auto Parts stores while your out and ask them to connect their Code scanner to your vehicle. They can identify the code and what it means. Auto Zone and Advanced Auto parts come to mind for doing this for free.

My check engine light is on and I had it checked at

the iat sensor(intake air sensor) it is in big hose from air cleaner and has a 2 wire plug on it.iat sensor monitors tempurature of air entering engine. the pcm uses this info, to balance air and fuel mixture. if bad it can cause; poor idle when cold, stumble on cold excelleration, and surging when engine is warm. I replaced the iat on my malibu and it was less then 20.00, any auto parts store shold have this, I know advance auto does. the sensor just pulls out from hose.

Check engine light on daytime driving light indicator flashing

first of all it means that u have a problem some where on the suv the only way to find the problem is to hook a diagnostic computer and see what the code is u will have to take the car to a shop who works on isuzu and im sure they can tell u what code it is and whats wrong or u can take the suv to advance auto parts and they can hook there machine to it for free and tell u the code good luck

OK, the best action now would be to scan the ecu for any trouble codes that may be stored at this point with a diagnostic computer. this action will describe the issue concerning the check engine light and, it will also direct you to the location of the failed sensor that may be damaged at this time.

In most cases, this light will illuminate if a vital sensor has failed to register a signal for a short time or, if the sensor circuit is open.

thank u
