    clearing the light dosn't fix the fault that caused it, if it blinks the engine has a miss- fire

Engine manage light came on my lexus is200 and engine sounded like it was miss firing, then the trc off light was repeatedly flashing is the a orob with the brain


Get yourself an On board display scanner from ebay about 20GBP.

read the instructions. Plug in to the under dash socket and note the fault code. Look up the code and then see if you can fix the problem. If you can't, clear the engine management light [the next time you start it the light will come on again] and take it to a garage Don't tell them what you know, see if they feed you with a lot of rubbish and try to rip ou off.

My vauxhall meriva will not start garage cannot find anything wrong gave it a full service. someone says it could be my key.


If it is indeed the key, you will see the engine management light flashing rapidly as you try to start it. If it aint flashing,,,it aint the key.Could be numerous things...garage need to use computer to find fault codes / check live data...not a complex car.

2003 ford expedition... shaking when driving and during stop. check engine soon light keeps flashing. recently had spark plugs changed.


will try to help.the shaking during braking may be a warped brake rotor,shaking while driving is in the wheel alignment. you have several issues to deal with.as far as the engine light flashing,check all your fluid levels in the engine. oil,low coolant, brake fluid,transmission fluid. top off fluids as needed. you can reset that engine light by disconnecting the positive cable from the battery for 10mins.this will reset the cars computer. but if you have a sensor or other issues,that light will come back on.the only way to know for sure is to have it code read a garage or dealership will be able to plug it in to get the codes for you.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

1996 Ford explorer 6 cyl. shakes at 45-50 mph


If the engine is misfiring and that is the source of the shaking then the check engine light will be flashing like crazy, other wise it is not the engine causing this, I know was a Ford tech for 25 years.

I have a mazda protege 2003 and my car stinks like rotten eggs when i put on the gas and on top of that, my engine light is blinking and my car shakes when i stop at a red light!


i have a 2003 mazda protege. this is the third time my check engine light has come on. the first time the car started to shake when i stopped at a light and the check engine light came on. i had a readout done and it said misfire. i took it to a garage and they changed my spark plugs and wires. 2 weeks later it came on again and my car started to shake whenever i stopped. readout said misfire. they fixed the coils. it has been 2 weeks since then and my car started shaking again whenever i stop and the light came on. what could possibly be wrong with it?

I have a 2002 VW POLO 1.2 The engine management light came on and the car started to ?shake? on start up until some revs were applied and then returned to normal. Took it in to the garage and they said...


i also have a 2002 VW Polo 1.2, which I bought in January this year. The first time i drove it the engine management light came on. I took it to a garage and they changed a sensor in the exhaust system at a cost of £350. I drove the car again the following week and the light came on again, I took it to the same garage and they told me it was unrelated and that i needed another £300 repair. Refusing this I took the car to my parents mechanic who told me that these lights are prone to coming at the slightest little thing and to ignore it if the car is driving fine and sounds normal. He said that if there was a genuine problem that you wouldn't need the light to tell you but that the problem would be obvious through the sound it made or by the way the car started to drive. He said he felt the sensors were over sensitive and were there largely to encourage owners to take their cars into the garage for expensive repairs which didn't need doing.
He told me to drive the car as normal and ignore the light. He said only take it to a garage if there is an obvious problem, otherwise I was wasting my time and money.
I now drive the car without worrying abou the light and so far I haven't had any problems.
Suggest you do the same.

Audi a4 engine management light


Go to AutoZone or Advance Auto Parts and have them scan the ECU (they do it for free, where a shop will charge you). They'll give you the codes, and you can post them here. Once you do that, I can help you narrow it down.
