Many things can turn that light on you will need a scan tool to find out which system is having issues, is the gas cap loose that will turn it on . If you pushed it hard like you said its possible the cat efficiency is going down , you need to get codes from computer

Indecator lights on panel

Go to an Autozone, Advance, or Oreilys autoparts store and ask for a clerk to check your dash. It may be a "check engine" symbol. Scans for this are free at these stores.

When the car is scanned, it will suggest possible problems caught by your onboard diagnostic system.

There are other lights too, for Brakes, oil pressure, water temperature and traction control.

What usually happens is you may be able to buy a part to fix your problem if it is not too difficult to install. Otherwise you can price the repairs knowing what is wrong.

Please rate my info.

Get it scanned again. If you bought cheaper ones at the parts store instead of oem ones from the dealer you are probably going to be doing them again. The upstream and down stream 02 sensors communicate with each other so it could be the upstream sensors even though it says downstream. I ran into this problem myself.

I am using toyota vitz 1999 model falt is simple the car is running after 1 hour screen abs signal an after few min stop engine and totaly off car system.after 1 or 2 min then i am starting engine then...

not sure exactly what you mean but iam assuming you mean the ABS light comes on then the vehicle stops ?' if this is the case clean the sensors on each wheel as they could be dirty with a lot of metal dust sticking to the sensors ,which is throwing the light on which is causing the computer to detect a fault and shut the car down

1]Iam driving 1999 buick century and its saying,"engine service soon'' which indicating inside.So what I have to do.?pls guide me. 2]And also my heater though it blows but it will not give hot...

If there is a service engine soon light on, then there are codes that need to be read off of the computer. One can get an obd-ii scanner for under $100 at Sears or walmart or get Advance Auto Parts or Autozone to scan for free.

On the second question, check that the heater core is getting hot on both tubes at the firewall (heater hoses 1").
If not, then the system needs flushed or the heater core will have to be replaced.
If they are getting hot, then there is a blend door problem.

Check engine light is on

Go to any local auto parts store (like Autozone or Schucks-O'Reilly) and they will run a diagnostic on your car that reads the check engine light for free. This test should turn-up a code that says where the problem is coming from.

2002 Jeep Cherokee with 22,000 miles has check engine light on. What can this be so early in the mileage

There are hundreds of things that turn on the check engine light, some are simple, like the gas cap loose, others are more complicated. A good thing to try is to stop by a local auto parts store, such as Auto zone, and most will scan your code for free and tell you what possibly caused the light. This way you can know for sure !

Battery indecator light on on dash

Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.
