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.

I want to turn the oil lite off and service engine lite

You need to reset the oil lite with an oil change or add oil. As for the check engine lite being on you need to read the codes and see why it is on then the repair facility will reset the lite. They come on for a reason.

How do you reset the check engine light? 2003 chevy tahoe

Check engine light came on for a reason. Could be one of a hundred reasons. My adivce would be to go to Advance Auto, O'Reilly's or any of the many Parts Stores and "borrow" a Code Reader. Easy to use and most places let you use it for FREE. The Code Reader will show what Code was set and what it MIGHT be. The Code Reader also resets the Codes and the Check Engine Light will go off.... until it senses something is wrong with your truck.

Good Luck.

The check engine light is on.

Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. Make sure you have the correct radio code before doing this or your radio will not work after disconnecting the battery.

Engine light is on

There are a very large number of reasons the check engine lite will come on. Some conditions will clear but the lite will stay on until it is cleared manually. I would susgest taking it to the dealership or too a local mechanic who can use a scanner to read the code that is locked in. If the problem no longer exists than they can clear the code and the lite will go out and if their is a problem with the car the code should give you/them a place to start.
