Question about Cars & Trucks
Posted by Anonymous on
If the vehicle is newer than 1996 you may need a scanner or code reader to erase the trouble codes to make the light turn off. If the problem still exists, the light will come back on until it is fixed.

SOURCE: check engine light
I found that my check engine light comes on when I fail to turn the gas cap two clicks. It has something to do with the air . After I paid $50 for one of those diagnostics, I always make sure when it comes on to check if my husband failed to click the gas cap, correct the problem and the check engine light goes out before I have to gas up the next time and will stay off as long as I am the sole driver.

you have to first check what it is, most shops charge about 30$ for it.. they will tell you exactly what it is, then depending on that it will be know what's nessesary to fix for inspection.. you can also try to reset the computer by disconecting the battery (for 10 min) and see if the light comes back on..

SOURCE: 1988 check engine light
There is a hidden switch on the steering column just under the dash that needs to be flipped when the odometer reaches certain intervals. I'ts to cue you to take it to the dealership for routine maintenence.

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.
This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.
In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

Have the computer scanned (see my tips and tricks section for a free way to do so - click my screenname and go to Tips and Tricks). There are either latent codes (codes which are set but are not tripping a check-engine light) or you have an issue with a readiness code.
Once the codes are scanned, post them here as a reply/comment and I can work with you on solving the issue.
