Why service engine light is on?


The primary purpose of the Service engine light is to indicate there is a problem with the anti-pollution/ smog system.
If your vehicle is a 1996 or newer model, it comes equipped with an On-Board Diagnostics System (OBD II). This system is designed to catch emissions problems.
OBD alerts you to conditions that waste fuel, shorten engine life and result in potentially expensive repairs.
OBD lets you know your vehicle is contributing to unhealthful air by emitting excess pollutants.
The OBD trouble codes can help in diagnosing the condition, but do not always point to the cause.

you need to take it to an a.s.e. certified mechanic and do an evap leakdown test to find out where the leak is in the evap system of your vehicle. replace the gas cap and see if the problem goes away as it is often the problem with this trouble code.

I recently replaced the engine on my Citroen c4 2005 model, now the warning lights stay on, the engine overheat, abs and anti pollution warning lights stay on.


The problem for engine overheating rise due to insufficient refrigerant. Try recharging the refrigerant tank with fresh refrigerant and water. If the refrigerant in the tank is of poor quality then also engine overheat.

The reason for ABS light to come may be due to air in the brake fluid line. Try brake bleeding to remove the air bubbles. Also the faulty brake actuator line may cause the problem. Check for actuators on each wheel.

Pollution warning light comes on if the exhaust system not works properly. Check for faulty Oxygen sensor or faulty catalytic convertor.

Citroen c crosser anti pollution light


Anti pollution light, I never heard of a Check engine light being called that.
Read on please.

Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Anti pollution light comes on once car has been driven for twenty mins or so


I had a problem with "Unblock diesel filter and Anti-pollution fault". After reading a few answers for this I decided to take car into the mountains for a good workout. Usually my trips are short and often therefore the exhaust was not getting hot enough to burn off the diesel residue in the Particle filter. In 40 mins of 3,5000 revs mainly in 3rd gear nothing showed up on the computer. Think this problem is sometimes caused by the engine not getting hot enough for long enough.

Anti pollution system fault light is on.


If the Anti pollution warning light is coming on the possible causes are endless. If the car is driving ok then that is a good sign, but please remember that modern management systems can mask problems quite well. The safest advice is to get it looked at and see what fault codes are appearing and then a diagnosis can begin, as leaving it is not going to be a good thing, it can go from a minor problem to more serious issues. At least the light is not flashing, which usually means an emission compliance problem and even more serious, but even so I would advise protecting your vehicle by getting it checked out as soon as possible to avoid potential damage.
----------
A fault in the ignition can cause an engine misfire and unburnt fuel gets into the exhaust causing the anti-pollution light to be triggered.

Check the ignition system for signs of damp or loose connections.------- I suggest get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned.This will show the problem if you receive the error code.-------- Thanks.Helpmech.
