Go purchase a OBD tool for about $95.00 and get the code book that goes with it and you can read the codes that turnthe light on.

WHAT IS A PROBLEM IF CAR SWITCH IT SELF OFF WHILE YOU DRIVING ? I USE OTHER CAR TO PULL MY CAR USING A ROPE AND KICK START TILL ITS START BUT BAD REV AND IDLE LOOSING POWER OPEL CORSA LITE 2006 MODEL.


There are many things that can cause this, each will set a fault code in the computer control module of the engine and drivetrain (both are fully electronically controlled). So you must have a fault code test run to read these codes and then diagnose the cause(s)

Could a weak battery cause Throttle position switch sensor error code - after 1 hr drive engine lite on and gas pedal quits, restart car, repeats about 30 min later


no it will not. if the engine light is on check for codes this will help to know which direction to start diagnosing. a weak battery will usually show up on a no start condition. I am guessing the engine light that comes on is the check engine one.

The light comes on and stay on after the engin is started. StabiliTrack warning light and the StabiliTrack


All dash lights should light with the key on/engine off

ALL dash lights should go out when the engine is running

If you have ANY Light lite,you have a possible system failure
& check for codes,diagnose them,component test & resolve

You can google your codes or Stabilitrac & read up

Read your owners manual

My engine light stays on what could be the problem


You do realize, we have had On Board Diagnostic Systems
on Vehicles for 30 years now?

You can't even ask that question

At the very least, we would need to have some kind
of code, that results,when you get a MIL Lamp or Check
Engine Lite.

Then we only guess,as the codes don't tell you what is wrong

No vehicle self diagnoses it's self,you need a repair shop for that

2003 Mazda tribute - Check lite come on and engine stalls several times. Car will start after several starts but engine lite remains on. Do youknow the problem?


Of coarse not,no idea on the problem

You have a check light on

Is that something you don't know about?
They have been on all vehicles for 30 years !

Check for codes
Diagnose the system with the malfunction
Repair

Same 3 things you do with any dash light,
on any vehicle since 1980. Can't guess,have
to start somewhere & test things

The ABS lite, No Trac Lite and Service engine lite keep coming on


When the Service engine soon, ABS and TRAC lights are turned on at the same time the computer control units for the engine and the ABS/TRAC systems has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system and the ABS and Traction Control system (part of the ABS system). When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different or the car drive any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, the fault in your car is likely a part called the VSS sensor to know for sure what the problem is you must have the system tested; Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free

2000 Jeep Cherokee the engine lite comes on when I brake hard


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you need to diagnosed and repaired it. The list of possible codes number in the hundreds. The code itself doesn't tell exactly what component is defective - it only indicates where to look, or what engine parameter is out of normal range. You or a technician will have to perform further testing to pinpoint cause and the proper repair. Even if you reset the light, if the underlying problem is not addressed it will come back on. If the vehicle runs it's test and finds the component or sensor passes the test for three consecutive tries it will turn off the light, but store the code in memory. This maybe what is happening to your vehicle.

Check engine/airbag lites are on


Dear Dave:

Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the Check Engine, Service Engine Soon, Airbag,ABS Or TC lights to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. I would take it to a service center you trust and let then come up with a solution. Sometimes a problem in one system will turn light on for other systems that communicate with it, but it doesn't mean there is a problem in all of the systems. If the Airbag light is on all the time when you are driving that means the computer has found a problem, and the airbag might not go off in an accident until you get it repaired. This is a job for a professional.

Check engine lite stays on


If you disconnect the battery for 1 minute and reconnect it the check engine lite will reset. when you start your vehicle again the lite shouldn't be on unless the problem is still present. If the problem is still there the lite will come on again and you should take it in to a shop and have it diagnosed for engine codes and see what the problem is.
Try disconnecting the battery first though before you go spending great amounts of money on something that was probably just a minor glitch in the computer.

Bets of luck and let me know if this has helped you.
