It means that your computer is recieving a a code from a sensor that is either failing or a time change item is coming up due...oil, transmission, timing belt....it all depends on the manufacturer.

You need a code scanner hooked up to it to find out why the light is on, if there is an advanced auto, or auto zone, go there, and tell them the engine light is on, and you need to retrieve the code.It will also show what sensor it is. Takes about a minute to do, and they don't charge, where repair shops do.

2008 Bmw 128 service engine soon light will not turn off. Drives fine


You have a check light on !!


Surely you know that you have
to check for codes, to even get pointed in
some direction

You don't ever drive more than one day without
checking for codes & if you can't have the car completely
repaired in a week, you don't use it until you can.

O2 sensor, car miss firing, service engin soon light came on after fillingup


It would be kind-of nice to know what kind of vehicle we are talking about. It would also be nice to know WHAT ABOUT O2 sensor??? If the engine is misfiring, there are several things that can cause this. It could be anthing from a worn out spark plug, all the way to a cracked cylinder head and a whole bunch of other stuff in-between. The problem must be DIAGNOSED. The service engine soon light is trying to tell you that there is a problem and that you need to get your engine control system serviced! If the engine is misfiring, the Service Engine Soon light is SUPPOSED to be on!

I have a 1999 Saturn sc3. It was fine until the hurricane this past weekend. As soon as I turned the car on, the l"Service Engine Soon" light came on. I am wondering if it is safe to drive or...


The Service Engine soon light indicates that something is likely wrong with your emissions system. It could be any number of things but it is OK to drive to a repair shop or parts shop to get the codes read. Some of these issues can cause damage if you don't get the vehicle repaired soon but you can drive it a little bit (you won't need to get it towed).
I would recommend an Autozone or Pep Boys to get the code read as it may be something as simple as replacing the gas cap.

I have the "Service Engine Soon" (SES) appearing


IF you are absolutely certain YOU know why the light is on ... and there is no other reason ... you can probably have this code cleared by someone with a SCAN tool ... expect to pay for the service ... and probably pay near what it will cost to repair the problem. When the mechanic clears the code, he or she will have to get enough money to "recover" when you come back in a few weeks and say HE or she DID IT AND NOW MY CAR WILL NOT WORK.

Please don't kill the messenger ... Thank you

Hi my 1997 nisan sentra has the service engine soon light on my mechanic says i may have to replace the timing belt soon is it worth it? i keep hearing a ticking sound and it only seems to be getting...


a timing belt change is not monitored by the service engine soon light.it comes on when the computer detects a problem and sets a code.the code will have to be pulled to know what area to start to diagnose.the ticking could be anything from low or dirty oil needing to be changed to the valves may need adjusting,even a worn or dry belt can make a ticking sound.you don`t say how many miles are on the car or if you have changed the timing belt.if the mileage is over 100,000 kil(60,000 miles) then it should be changed.

Why would my check engine light be on. I have a toyota 4runner


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you will need to have the car diagnosed and repaired.
