Question about 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse
Check engine soon?
I have an amber Service Engine Soon light on my car that indicates that there is a problem with the engine that should be looked at soon.
Your car has an OBD-II system on it that allows the code to be read by a scanner that can lead to diagnosing and repairing the problem.
Some cars have an 'idiot' light that comes on at certain service intervals usually controlled by the odometer.
This can be reset by the scanner.

Illuminates when the ignition is switched on. It should extinguish as soon as
the engine starts.
If it illuminates with the engine running, it indicates a malfunction with the engine management system. Have this checked as soon as possible.
If it flashes when driving, reduce the vehicle speed immediately until the light illuminates constantly. If it continues to flash, avoid heavy acceleration and high engine speed, stop the vehicle and have it checked immediately.
On some vehicles this light may be red - again stop the vehicle and seek assistance.
If it is safe to do so, try stopping the vehicle, switching off the engine, wait two minutes, then restarting the engine to reset the engine management system.
With the light illuminated, the vehicle is still safe to drive as long as no other faults are apparent with the engine. Have the vehicle checked by a dealer or garage as soon as possible to avoid any damage being caused to the catalytic converter
