Hi bbprinting, if you dont have a code reader, go to your local auto parts store to have your truck scanned. most all reputable auto parts stores do this for free.

once you have the code they should be able to tell you why the light was set and might recommend something or you can post the code here and someone will help you figure out why the light was set.

after they check for the code, you can have them reset it to make the light go out. sometimes the light will be set for something simple like a misfire that may or may not return again.

If you handy around a car, get that code read from auto parts store (free), and get a service manual, best place I've found is, they have complete factory service manuals and great customer service.

I cant get the service engine light to go off and I don't have the truck manual

Take your truck to your local auto parts store or repair garage, and have them attach an ODB code reader to your truck to readout the error codes and reset the SERVICE ENGINE light.
Please note that the SERVICE ENGINE light only comes on when SOMETHING IS WRONG. If you do not want it to come back on, you will need to establish where the failure is and fix it.

You probably have a trouble code stored in the engine computer for a faulty transmission selector switch. The engine computer thinks the trans is in 3rd gear and not park. Or it really could be stuck in third gear.

Read the check engine error code for a place to start (large auto parts stores will have a scanner for use at their location, and they may even scan the code for you and tell you what it means). Good luck.

2007 check engine light is on. The truck is running great

Getting the car scanned is advisable.Check engine light on?
The check engine light comes ON when the cars computer (the ECU) notices any kind of electrical problem in car. In some cases the check engine light comes on then turns off. In that case the exact error is not getting confirmed so this happens. But once the problem gets confirmed the engine light will remain permanently ON till the problem gets solved. In this case I suggest you to get your car scanned at autozone service center. It's absolutely free. In case in car scanning, if any error code is retrieved then you can check which part is faulty as per the error code.--------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

2002 Tahoe Dropping Cylinder

A tune up will not cure the lean code, in fact an engine miss gives a rich code from the unburned fuel. I would suggest u verify u have no vacuum leaks, also clean the inside of the MAF sensor if so equipped and replaced the bank two O2 sensor, that is the passenger side sensor before the catalytic converter. If u have the money replace both right and left sensors, it is better to do them in pairs.

98 C1500 Silverado ''service engine soon'' light

the service engine soon lite comes on due to an input sensor to your vehicles computer that has gone out of its parameters. this lite does not come on due to mileage. the computer needs to be scanned for code #'s in order to diagnose correctly. autozone will scan codes for free. if you get me the code #, ill try to assist further, otherwise you may want to see your local garage.
