SOURCE: 2006 Ford mustang check engine light come on

You need to have it scanned to see what code turned on the light. Check your gas cap, make sure it is tight.

This vehicle has the OBDII system and you can only retrieve codes on this with a scan tool. Some of your parts houses like Autozone will retieve them for you for free.

SOURCE: check engine light and check transmission

i have had this same problem since ~ 44K miles. Dealer says need a new trans, bu after i shut the car off, it runs fine...ad sometimes for months without the wrench light and trans messages popping up. I looked on the ford site and they show a tech bulletin about the sensors being bad as mentioned above. Im waiting for mine to act up again and am taking it in to get this fixed. Obviously Im going to another dealer.

SOURCE: the service engine soon light came on in my 2003

The service light can come on for many reasons. You need to ask a sales clerk at the local auto parts store to read the codes for your car and tell you what the codes indicate. When you get them to tell you, pay attention to the the last code (most recent) and instead of trying to replace parts based on the code readouts, instead you should post on fixya what the codes indicate and experts can then give you suggestions to help you fix the problem for the least expense.

2003 ford explorer 4.0 no ckeck engine light working


What? YOiu mean your have error codes but the check engine light does not come on. Normal operation is no check engine light is on. When there is a sensor failure the engine "brain" detects a problem and set's error codes. And this "set" turns on the check engine usually with a red light. Other wise there is a problem with your engine's brain (ECU) or other names.

2006 explorer reset check engine


When the Check Engine Light is flashing ON it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.

In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

I have replased my battery and alternator and my battery light and service engine soon wont turn off it a 2004 ford explorer 4.0 sohc


When the Check Engine light comes on that means that the computer in your Explorer has set Diagnostic trouble codes and stored them in the computers memory.After all repairs are made to all D.T.C. The codes need to be erased from your computer, this resets the Check Engine Light, and it should not come on again untill the computer finds another falt.Good Luck.

Had the engine replaced in my 99 explorer and now the overdrive light keeps flashing


The overdrive light also serves as the "check engine" light but for the transmission. If its flashing it means the computer recognizes a problem with the transmission or its electronics. If the engine was just replaced, they probably forgot to plug something in, or some wiring got damaged in the engine swap. It can be scanned with a scan tool for a code and the code will indicate what circuit is at fault.

Airbag light on instrument panel flashes then stays illuminated


Some vehicles you can disconnect the battery for 10-20 mins and it usually resets a check engine light. But the airbag light is different. This means there is something wrong with the airbag system and it will not go out until maintenance.
