To retrieve the code you must plug an OBD II reader into vehicle, and get the code. This will lead you to a solution to clearing the check engine light.
Please elt me know waht you find.

There are 1100 things that can turn that light on, the most common is the gas cap. Check if its on tight. If it is, you must have a repair shop "Scan" the computer and get a troulble code, the code tells the tech where to start looking for the problem.

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...


Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

The check engine light came on it seems to run fine the only other thing i noticed is the temp gauge runs up to 210 then comes back down,it only does that right after you start it then its fine


Check engine light can be any number of reasons, dirty air filter, need oil change, or more serious engine trouble. The temp gage issue is normal, this is the computer resetting itself. My car the fuel gage and temp gage do this...don't be alarmed. Take it to Advance Auto Parts and they can run a free engine diagnostics test on it to see which error code is tripping your check engine light.

Engine Check Light


you should have the code read and go from there. You must realize sometimes it is like an early warning for things to come so it is best to know what the code is causing lightt to correct the problem.there are several things which can cause a light without effecting running condition. But if you let it go it may cost more further down the road.

Check Engine Light Problem


Codes that tell you your engine is running lean can be caused by a number of things. First thing to do (and cheapest) is to get some fuel injector cleaner and run it for awhile. Dirty injectors can cause these codes. I recommend lucas brand myself but there are several different cleaners to choose from. The second thing is checking your vacuum lines. If there is a leak it can cause the engine to **** in too much air and cause the codes. Anything beyond that gets into alot of mechanical work and should be done by a certified technician

1999 Toyota Camry check engine and trac lights on


I would ignore the problem until something else happens and the car is not running right. A lot of the time it could be a bad sensor or computer. I would say the same thing to my customers as your mechanic.

Check Engine light flickers occasionally


Check the oxygen sensor or catalytic converter might be bad; but I would check the oxygen sensor first. Also clean the cold air intake sensor, if there is something cover it then you'll see the checkengine flickers on but your engine is running fine.
