If the check engine light is on, then take it to any auto parts store. They will attach a scan tool and get a readout of the engine fault codes. This will help narrow down what is causing the problem. The purpose of the check engine light is to alert the driver to a potential problem. It could be an emission problem of some sort like an oxygen sensor going bad or some other reason. Even though the engine is running fine, the codes should still be checked. Hope this helped you.

My engine light came on.when i took it to the auto parts store they said i needed a new gas cap. I got a new gas cap and now i need to know how to turn the check engine light off.

It will turn itself off after a period of time. But if you don't fell like waiting, just unhook the (+) positive post of the battery for about 15 minutes, and it will reset the computer. Your battery might be located in the Drivers Side front Wheel well.

Peugeot 306 turbo deisel auto diagnostic light coming on. conditions frdidnt know if the freezing conditions could cause

Check that engine oil is atleast a grade of 10W40. If temperature is below 0°C then Standard engine oil mostly a cause of bad circulation.
To find out if its because of engine oil, drive the car (find out an empty motorway) 60MPH for at least 15-20 minute; come back home; turn the engine off: wait 2 minutes and then start again. if still there is check engine light, then the problem is something else.

Take off the battery wires for 15 minutes. That will reset the computer. But if it senses a problem it will come right back on then you should have the code read

Service engine soon, SLIP, TC OFF LIGHTS ON

I had the same indications on My 2000 Maxima but the engine was also running rough . I replaced the number 3 cylinder ignition module and all of the spark plugs and all of the error lights are back to normal I had to reset the check engine light by disconnecting the battery for about 15 minutes.By the way my car has 253,000 miles on it so if you have a lot of miles on your car you might want to check all of the ignition modules so pull your spark plugs and read them they might tell you where your problem is .
