The check engine light is an indication of failure however it doesn't tell you what has failed for that you need to have a diagnostic done by a dealer ore a local shop to determine what the problem is

Many things can cause the engine light to come ON. Best way to find out is to take the vehicle to an auto-parts store. Most auto-parts stores will scan the computer for a trouble code for free. They should tell you what the trouble code means that's causing the engine light to come ON.

Could driving the Ford Escort with the Service Engine Soon light On for 4 weeks cause the interlock switch to start going bad???


no.

The check engine light comes on because there is a problem with a sensor, system, or part the computer controls or monitors. It should not effect the shift interlock which is basically controlled by the brake switch.

Toyaota Camry 1994 engine won't start, Engine light on


I would check for fuel,(pressure and injector pulse), spark, and compression, before checking any codes. Lack of any of these basics can result in codes, and then you waste alot of time chasing a symptom, instead of the actual problem.If more people followed basic diagnostics, which always come back to these three basics, rather than chasing codes first,they would find no starts much more quickly.

Does the Check Engine light come ON when this happens? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. What did the dealership tell you???? NO trouble Codes?
