Check for any of the sensor is failure mostly the O2 sensor might had problem better replace it or consult the nearest volvo authorised service centre to sort out the problem the O2 sensor is mostly located on the vehicle exaust manifold system it is dangerous to check when it is hot better consult a good known person for this.

The check engine light is on because it is storing a fault code from a sensor reading a fault. Take it to any auto parts stor and they have a code reader that can tell you the fault code and the problem.....FOR FREE!!!

FREE is ALWAYS good!

It's the check engine light..

Check engine light stays on all the time, but car runs fine?


Well, the engine management system has something wrong. Pull the codes and explore the code(s) given.
Car running fine with the check engine indication is not unusual. Something is wrong, get after it.

Check engin light stays on. Starts fine runs


Most common cause of engine lights is either an air fault such as air flow meter or air mass sensor. there are others but if the car is driving fine then most likely an air fault.

Check the air sensor sometimes they just need a clean up rather than replacement.
Let me know if you need more info.

Engine light stays on, then engine light flashes while running crappy. If I touch the gas pedal just right engine runs fine and light stops flashing(but stays on). 1996 cavalier 2.4L OHV.


Most local parts stores like Autozone or Advance auto will check the trouble codes for free and help you get the parts you need to fix whatever is causing the engine light to come on.

Yellow engine check light stays on


take the car to dealership and get them to cancel the fault memory of the engine control unit. Then if the warning light comes back on you will need a full diagnosis check to establish what is causing thefault.

Service engine light stays on


disconnect battery and reconnect. If you have a problem that the computer is sensing, the light will reappear. At that point you must fix the problem. If your car seems to be running ok it could be something minor. Check all sensor connections under the hood
