Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.
Go to www.hmaservice.com and register( Vehicle by VIN). Afterward, you have access to shop manuals, service bulletins, wiring diagrams, etc. about your vehicle.Take/Tow your vehicle to an authorized Hyundai dealership and pay the diagnostic fee... they will tell you exactly what the problem is and the cost of parts/labor to fix it... at least this way you'll know what the problem is and what's required to fix it.

I had timing belt, head gasket and catalytic converter replaced one week ago and now service engine light is flashing and truck is shaking.


Have it scanned , was the computer cleared after all this work? And or have you driven this vehicle more than 40 miles. As it usually takes about 40 miles for the light to come back on. I would scan it and if there is more than one code. Check the first code clear and drive. As if one thing being wrong/bad part would make the computer to try and correct air/fuel mix and throw more codes.

New battery and camshaft actuator truck is flashing check engine light and shutting off


when the check engine light keep flashing, means a severe misfire it's happening, the vehicle should not be driven to avoid engine damage
I will check the spark in cylinder number one, if good blue spark it's present, then I will check the engine compression just to be sure nothing bad has happened, above 150psi it's good compression
if compression it's good then look into the injectors, engine timing clogged exhaust computer controls.

My service engine soon light is flashing on my 2000 Lincoln Town Car and the car acts like it wants to kill


When the service light is flashing, this is a very serious matter. The car should really not be driven, esp. more than even a few miles to a repair shop. The flashing symbol is different than the always on symbol, in that it signifies a potentially engine ruining outcome.

If the light is on steady and not flashing go on ahead and when you get back stop by a parts store and ask if they can read the code and then go from there. When the light is on steady the computer substutes a known good value to keep it running till you can get it in for repairs. But if it flashes while driving that means it has a engine damaging condition going on and sud not be driven.

2003 Audi A4 1.8T Check Engine light on


The CEL means there is a Diagnostic Fault Code stored in the Engine Control Unit. There are 1000's of DTC's, so you will need to have it read by a Code Reader. Auto Parts stores like Auto Zone, Pep Boys, perhaps even Advanced Auto often will read the code for you; but by law they cannot clear the codes. Many codes do not cause drivability problems, severe ones will trigger the ECU to run in a Limp Mode, which would require repair work before any trip longer than a few miles. Hope this is helpful.

Flashing check engine light


If its an orange light its a service engine soon light, the car can be driven, if its a red check engine light DO NOT DRIVE because of risk to damage the engine. However if there is an auto zone close by they will check the light for free. Then I can work with you from there. Good Luck

Is this a V6 VQ35 or 4 cylinder QR25?? If the check engine light is flashing the car is not running on all cylinders. Misfire detected by the ECM/computer. The code for the check engine light is going to be misfire code, that will tell you which cylinder misfired. Need more info as to which powertarin you have (V6 or 4 cylinder) They both have their own bugs. Let me know. Oh. and how many miles on it also.
