Hello padapiad.
The light is indicating a problem in the computer system in your vehicle. There are many different systems on your vehicle than can cause this to happen. Some are more serious than others.
If you live in the USA, Autozone will perform a scan on your vehicle for you and you will then have an idea how to proceed to the repair.
If you are not in the USA take it to a trusted and reputable service center and have it checked out.
If you need more help with this let me know.

Actually some Auto Zone's will not diagnose the problems now because they have changed there policy in some US states.
But Checker Auto will let you borrow there OBDll tool and you will have to leave a government id with them while you take it out to your car. Then all you do is insert the key in the ignition turn forward (not starting the vehicle) and under the dash on the driver's side there is a usb connector you will plug in the OBD tool and it will start scanning the codes you might want to write these down and then when it's done just hit the erase button and this will shut the engine light off for about 50 miles. Then just unplug it and turn your ignition off. Then if it goes on again I would take it to a mechanic.

Thats just like a check engine light. Take it to autozone and ask them to check for trouble codes. They do it for free. that will give you some idea what is going on, but if they try to sell you anything, don't buy anything until you get a second trustworthy opinion.

When the engine is started, the sign service engine soon always displays. i have just serviced it and the sign is still there, please how do i remove it.

I don't know what you mean by serviced.
That means a variety of things to different people.
If you had your vehicle in a repair shop, for any reason, they would see the Service Engine Light and check for codes and inform you of such.
If it came back on, you would have been told to bring it back or you would have called the shop or stopped by to discuss it,wouldn't you?

2007 jag xkr w/ 18,000 mi check engine light just popped on... probable cause?

To many to list. Could be something as simple as a loose gas cap.
Have someone check for trouble codes with a diagnostic computer.

Double check your manual. Is this a check engine light , or a service engine soon light. The former is a sign of trouble , the later is just a reminder to have your scheduled service done.

2003 Buick Regal Service Engine Soon light.

The error that I'm showing for error code P1133 is 
P1133 Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) insufficient switching bank 1 sensor 1(Rear Bank).  I would suggest having both of your Oxygen Sensors replaced if you haven't already had that done.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

How to service engine soon? sign apear in care

You have to take your car to a repair shop so they can connect a diagnostic tool to the cars computer. They will turn off the service engine soon light when they are finished. The light comes on automatically and does not mean something is wrong with your car. Good luck.Please rate me so I know how I'm doing. Thanks
