Could have been a temporary issue. If you want peace of mind, see if you can get a free scan at your local parts store. Tell them you want to see historical and pending trouble codes. Write them down and post them here for advice.

Dont be worried at all. The battery temp sensor isnt very important, most cars dont even have them. The only thing is you will have that light on. Good luck!!

SOURCE: 1999 chrysler sebring lxi service engine light on

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors 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 need to diagnosed and repaired it. If the light starts flashing, this is evidence of a serious problem and the vehicle should be taken to a repair facility or you need to repair it immediately.

SOURCE: check enginie light is on code that comes up is p1698 i have no idea what that means and my car seems to be ok

Here is my "take" on the P1698 code:
The P1698 code means that no digital data is being received by the powertrain controller from the transmission control module, located on the right inner fender. The manual says to check the ccd bus wires between the module and the rest of the system using the Chrysler diagnostic readout box. But if you don't have one then I think you can do the same thing by measuring for continuity (near 0 resistance) between pin 4 of its plug and pin 11 of the data link plug under the dash or pin 59 of the powertrain controller plug.
Then check the resistance between pin 43 if its plug and pin 3 of the data link connector or pin 60 of the powertrain controller plug. The powertrain controller is on the opposite side of the engine compartment on the left inner fender. These module plugs are held in place by a bolt. If the continuity between the transmission and the powertrain CCD wires checks to be ok, then according to the manual the trans controller should be replaced. You may be smart however to find an honest shop that has a code reader and let them determine for sure that it is the TCM and not the Powertrain control module (PCM) that is the fault. These modules are expensive enough that you would not want to replace the wrong one.
The other symptoms (1-3) are likely related to the problem because they are also dependent on the digital data communication bus for getting their instructions or sending their information. The passenger side window is probably not related to this, but rather a failed connection, switch or motor.

Hi there:

If the Check Engine Light comes on in the city but goes off on the freeway, then the fault is present during city driving conditions. Pay attention to whether or not the vehicle runs or drives any differently when the Check Engine Light illuminates. If vehicle performance does change, drive the car as little as possible and take it to be checked by a service professional as soon as possible. If there is no change in vehicle performance, you can drive home, but have it inspected as soon as possible. In this condition, you run a risk of the vehicle dying or not starting.

* The Check Engine Light comes on and stays on.
If the Check Engine Light illuminates constantly during driving with no noticeable driving or performance problems, there is a permanent fault in the emission control system. When this happens, the computer that controls the emission system usually has a backup program that runs while the fault is present. (These backup programs are often referred to as "limp home" mode programs.) You should get the vehicle serviced as soon as possible, but in most cases, the vehicle will continue to operate, though you run a risk of it dying or not starting.



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, have a nice day.

2002 Cadillac Escalade - was driving home from store when all of a sudden it seemed like I was running out of gas. Tank was 1/4 full. I filled it up. I was careful not to drive full acceleration so...


SERVICE ENGINE SOON light has nothing to do with overheating or leaks ! OBD2 - emissions . DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the PCM / ECM - engine computer . Probably a sensors or emission problem . Take an have it checked .

VSC Trac off lights on dashboard


I have just had the same problem this morning for the first time and I suspect it is just bad gas. We have had problems with the check engine light in our camaro whenever we bought hi test at the Mobile gas station closest to our home. I would not be surprised if this same gas station is now having water problems with their regular gas which is what we put in our 4runner. Try STP gas treatment first, which is what I am going to do now. When I used this approach with my camaro, the light went out within a few days. Technically, a sensor might have been damaged, but my thinking is that if that sensor is dead, then my fuel/air mixture will get bad enough to notice pretty quick. The TRAC off and VSC off are just extra lights that go on, whenever the check engine light comes on. I'll let you know how it goes.
