Hard to say without car specs, howeverthe five most common reasons why Engine lights come on randomly are:
Oxygen sensor, loose/faulty gas caps, catalytic converter, mass airflow sensor, and spark plugs and wires.

Will your Engine light come on if you need new brake pads or Rotors.


Not sure what you mean by rotors, but the engine light will not warn of brake wear. Engine light only comes on for service warning or beacuse af an engine fault. Hope this helps

Had new tries put on yesterday and now traction control light and engine check light have come on


Any time the check engine light comes on the traction control will be disabled and the light will also come on. Start with scanning the engine computer for trouble codes to see why the check engine light is on.

I have 2008 Malibu 4 cylinder and my engine light comes on, my temperature gage at times doesn't work and when it isn't working the fan keeps running and the engine light goes off at times, th


You need to find out the fault code that is stored that is causing the check engine light, the whole thing may be related to one failed part like the temperature sensor or the wiring to it.

Very low miles 1995 Hyundai ELANTRA 1800 cc 16 dohc. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT frequently comes on. Stop engine, retart after light goes off...sometimes goes for hundred miles and three times new timing belt...


If the timing belt keeps breaking and bending valves, the timing belt and cylinder head repair is not being done correctly. It's as simple as that. Are you changing the tensioner and idler pullies when replacing the belt? Is it timed correctly? Was the timing belt tension adjusted properly? Were the cam journals checked for damage? If not, you are asking for another belt failure.

If you want to know why the check engine light is coming on, you will have to ask your engine computer. Every time the light comes on it is storing a fault code to tell you why. You must scan your engine control module to retrieve the fault code(s) so you can get it properly diagnosed and repaired.

Engine light not coming on ! 2000 beetle


The engine light is only going to come on if the ECM detects a problem. The first time the light came on, a code was set. Now that the engine light isn't coming on isn't a bad thing. For what ever reason, the ECM is not detecting a problem so the engine light is not going to come on. Induce a code by unplugging the MAF sensor or MAP sensor and make the engine light come on. This will tell you that the ECM is in fact detecting problems and you engine light bulb isn't burnt out. When the engine light did come on, it could have been something that was intermittend and is not having a problem anymore.
