If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

Turn signal are not meant to stay on. Brake lights only come on when you press the brake pedal.Then you have tail lights that are totally different from brake and signals light.they are for night use.

I have a 1996 Saab 900 when I start the car and turn on the head lights the dash lights will turn on and then go out. Along with the dash lights, the radio lights and the lights along the shifter...


It could be a bad connection or a bad headlight switch, but there is also a safety switch on the car that turns the dash lights out when you lose your tail lights, so before you go any further check if your tail lights are working, your car may just be telling you about another problem.

I had the same thing. It is something to do with emissions apparently. I was told to check the fuel cap ! I put some silicone on the seal, cleaned it up, put it back on with the correct number of clicks and after about 15 minutes of driving, the Check Engine light stayed off.

Engine light stays on all the time


That check engine light is an indication that the engine control computer has thrown a code. You need to get that code read so you know what the problem is.

Engine light stays on. checked engine oil , it was low. aded more oil. engine light still on.car is running fine but engine light stays on


Some vehicles come on after they get alot of miles on them as routine maintenance may be required like a tune up new spark plugs , plug wires and distributor cap and rotor. You can unhook your battery terminal on some vehicles it will reset the light. you can try this first if the light comes back on get a tune up . or have a mechanic put it on his computer but I would do that last cause it can cost $20 -$60 depends on your mechanic.

Warning light


Usualy the check engine light reports a malfuction in your engine performance system, it coulb be a misfire, bad sensors, vaccum leak, you need to have your engine code read from a garage or an auto parts store that offers the service for free.
