It means there is a current code in the system, meaning there is actively something wrong with one or more systems.

In basic...something is wrong and needs corrected.

You can goto any autozone, advance auto, or any other major parts store and they can tell you what the code is thats making the light come on.

The check engine light stays on and skips and when I get to crusing speed the check engine light flashes what can be the problem


check engine light on means theres a problem and should be checked, flashing means a severe problem, stop driving and have checked. It will take a scan tool or code reader to find the problem areas. Since it happens at cruise its possible the cat is failing or an oxygen sensor failing.

I reset engine management light and within minutes light comes on


If the check engine light or MIL - malfunction indicator light , or service engine soon light is on , it means there is a problem with the engine management system ! an it means it set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in the PCM / ECM - electronic control module ! You can try resetting all you like but it's not going to stay out ! You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes an fix it ! Check Engine Code Scanner Advance Auto Parts

Obd light stays on/how to fix


CHECK ENGINE LIGHT, MIL. OR SES
THAT MEANS SCAN IT.
No ,you cant turn it off,
it means the PCM has found serious errors running the engines
or transmission and wants you to scan it to the the errors.
your mechanic does this first. then uses the FSM to see what they mean, then does the tests in the FSM to find true causes.
all cars 1988 to now, USA and forever on.

Do you mean that the check engine light stays on after you installed a new O2 sensor?

Check for codes, again, and go from there.

Check engine light stays on


It means that your car is due for a service. Ignore it at your peril!

Any well-equipped garage can do the servicing and then reset the service interval counter so that the light goes out.

This morning I noticed that my engine light came on and stayed on. What does that mean?


You have to use a diagnostic tool to know the reason. I believe Autozone will check engine codes for free.
