You'll need to find out what is causing the light to come on, and repair that. Then clear the codes with a scan tool. It will go out after so many key cycles, as long as the problem is fixed.

Your car has an earlier style OBD2 connector. You have to have a scan-tool to retrieve and clear code/s stored in the ECM. Most, if not all, part stores carry inexpensive scan-tools. Check them out and reside if you want to invest in one. Your car may need some type of repair to make the light go out.

SOURCE: service engine soon light came on my 1999 mercury sable

It means that the computer has detected a fault. You have a couple of options. You can buy an inexpensive code reader for about $50 and pull the codes yourself. You can call your local parts store to see if they can do this for you. You can bring your vehicle to a local shop and have them run a diagnosis. There is usually a charge for this. Let me know what codes you have and I'll be happy to help you further.

Computer has detected a fault--may or may not relate to the work you did. Please get a diagnostic scan of your OBD II connection and report trouble codes back to us. If you are in US, Autozone and Advance, among others, have free scanning service. We need the codes to diagnose.

The Warning Light "Service engine soon" came on. We have a 2001 Mercury Sable. How many miles can the car be driven before dealer inspection?


This light means that the computer in the car has sensed a problem with something on the car. You should take the car to a local auto parts store and have them read the codes from the service engine light. Post the codes they give you here and we can help more. Most likely you wont hurt the car by driving it with that light on. Better to ba safe then sorry thought.
