Hello... The light is programmed to come on only when there is a problem. Actually, it is programmed to come on whenever there is a problem that would affect the vehicles emissions.

Good Luck....

On initial startup unit runs good. After unit starts to warm up with defroster running engine service soon light comes on and stays on? Any ideas?


That's just a service reminder light. Usually indicating it's due for a particular service at a specified mileage. Any good shop or parts store can reset that for you.

1997 park avenue service vehicle soon lite what makes it come on?


It comes on automatically at certain mileage intervals to prompt you to take it in for services.
A check engine light , on the other hand , comes on when the computer senses a faulty circut or sensor.

Hello today i leaded out my Chevy Suburban truck to my sister she returned to me with the Service Engine Soon light on ?? Im sure she ran the truck up hill ? What might the problem be it was perfect this...


She didn't do anything wrong at all. Your truck is just fine and doing what it was designed to do. That's a normal indicator that comes on to remind you to get the oil changed. It's supposed to get reset every time the oil gets changed and frequently, Quickie Lube and other instant oil change shops will overlook resetting it. Look in your owners manual under "Resetting the Service Engine indicator light" and you can reset it yourself. Or just get the oil changed and tell them to make sure and reset it.

2002 impala - service vehicle soon light appears at random intervals. put a code scanner on the car and no codes returned. opening/closing trunk seems to make message disappear....what is going on?


Service vehicle soon is not the same as Check Engine. This is a reminder to perform some regularly scheduled maintenance based on your mileage. Could just be an oil change. Look in your owner's manual to find out.

Service engine soon light came on today. Does not


drop by autozone and they will scan the codes for free (at least the last time i heard it was free) the people there are fairly knowledgable so they should be able to tell you why the light is on.

sometime it's a one off that triggers the light. after three cycles of the key when it hasn't encountered the same problem it will go out.

Service engine soon light on.


This is a light which indicates that the odometer mileage is approaching a service interval. The service intervals are in the owner's manual.

The concept is you take the vehicle to the shop for routine preventive maintenance (and the mechanic resets the light until the next service interval approaches).

Service engine soon after a transmision problem repair


These two events are probably not related. The serviceengine-soon light just means that the vehicle mileage is approaching a service interval.

The concept is when this comes on the vehicle is taekn to the shop for its routine service and the mechanic resets the light.

If you have an owner's manual you'll find the service intervals -- the mileage is approaching one of those intervals.

service your vehicle soon as a precautionary measure. No warning lights, oil level and engine coolant temp ok then I wouldn't worry but follow the recommended service intervals in your owners manual

The maintenance light service soon comes on


You may need to reprogram the mileage interval setting that tells the light when to turn on, contact the dealer about how to do this.
