That is your check engine light,means that the computer sees something wrong,a bad sensor or something,if its still under warranty,take it back to where you bought it,if not take it to a local trust worhty shop to have it scanned, hope this helps

Having problem boosting my 2002 buick lesabre


Sounds like the last car I bought with"no problems!"
Start with a charged battery and clean all corrosion off cable connections before installing and tightening. Check your battery ground for a clean tight connection.
O.K., key on...still no check engine light/airbag light? You sure it's the bulbs out and not something disconnected? Try starting it. Does it crank over normally? If nothing, you mayhave a fuse out or something wrong in the power distribution center in the engine compartment. Check your fuses.There may be another center or box, too, with fuses, besides the one. Post back if you need more help. Cheers.

I bought a 2005 Ford Five Hundred last May.... I had no problem until when it started getting really cold and it started snowing. It wont start everytime I get in my car when its really cold or snowing ...


Since you bought it, what has been done in the way of
preventative maintenance

I would have layed it up for two weeks, and gone through the
entire vehicle,changing all fluids,spark plugs,checked fuel
pressure and on and on.

You probably bought a vehicle that is 5 or more years old,
that other than,oil changes, is the same as when it came off the
train and car hauler, on the way to a dealer

That won't work on todays high tech vehicles

Snow and cold, has little to do with todays electronic wonders

You do realize, your asking a question, when as I said, we have no vehicle
history

I don't think you understand the technology,not anyone can work on todays
vehicles. You need a 2 or 4 year college degree, if your just starting out

I will help you when you give me something technical to work with

Odd 2001 Dodge Intrepid symptoms


You either have a thermostat or water pump problem. car is getting hot. Check to make sure you have no water leaks on the hoses or radiator. to check the thermostat,run the engine for awhile to get it hot and touch the upper radiator hose to see if it is hot . If so then the thermostat is working and the problem would be the water pump. hope this will help you.

MY 1997 TOYOTA RAV4 HAS ENGINE LIGHT ON, IT IS ACTUALLY USED I BOUGHT IT TODAY WITH ALMOST 181,800KM CAN IT COME ON IF TIMMING BELT HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED OR IF THIER IS SOME LEAK IN GAS TANK OR SOMETHING


The check engine lightwill turn on when the engine and/or transmission control module finds a concern. The sellers may have had the light turned off just before they sold this vehicle, knowing there was a problem. No, it doesn't monitor timing belts, or leaks in the engine, but will turn on if there is an evap leak in the purge system. Autozone usually scans check engine lights for free.

Just bought my son a 1996 jeep cherokee. Today it


If the starter is getting proper voltage at main lead and trigger wire (with the key in "start") pull the starter. If it was making strange sounds likely there is something wrong with it. Check flywheel as well and make sure you can turn the engine by hand. If you aren't getting the proper voltage, check the battery, connections and starter relay (in power distribution center)

Myservice engine light came today rogh in idle at light rpms seem a little high this is a 98 saturn sl2 I think engine is a 1.9


the check engine light means that a code has been set. the code will reference a faulty system that must be diagnosed and repaired. sorry for the vagueness, but there are e gads of codes that can cause the rough idling

most aftermarket parts places will scan the car for free. this will give you an idea of where to start.
