The service light can come on for many reasons. You need to ask a sales clerk at the local auto parts store to read the codes for your car and tell you what the codes indicate. When you get them to tell you, pay attention to the the last code (most recent) and instead of trying to replace parts based on the code readouts, instead you should post on fixya what the codes indicate and experts can then give you suggestions to help you fix the problem for the least expense.

SOURCE: service engine soon.

it mearns that the computer is sensing a failure. You will need to see if it has logged any codes, and troubleshoot from there. You can go to many auto parts suppliers (autozone, ect) and many will read the codes for you, or you can purchase code reader and do it yourself

The service light means something is wrong with the car and it needs attention now. Get the codes checked and that will tell you what is wrong with it.

I have a 2003 Ford Explorer. Recently I noticed thsat a warning light "Service Engine Soon" illuminated on my dash and wont go away. I've never seen this before and Ive owned the car since 2003. What'


Hi Dennis
The light is warning you that there is a problem with the Engine management system, I cannot and no one else online can tell you what the problem is. But I can advise you to take your car to a workshop and have it scan, the technician will tell you.

Good luck

The flashing light is telling the driver the problem is serious enough to cause damage to the catalytic converter. Have the engine computer checked for trouble codes.

I have replased my battery and alternator and my battery light and service engine soon wont turn off it a 2004 ford explorer 4.0 sohc


When the Check Engine light comes on that means that the computer in your Explorer has set Diagnostic trouble codes and stored them in the computers memory.After all repairs are made to all D.T.C. The codes need to be erased from your computer, this resets the Check Engine Light, and it should not come on again untill the computer finds another falt.Good Luck.

What is the meaning of CHECK ENGINE ZONE for my ford expedetion 2003 v8 gasoline


http://www.ford.com/owner-services/customer-support/ask-ford-faqs?qtype=uq&inputtext=check+engine+zone

http://www.motorcraftservice.com/pubs/content/~WO3EXD/~MUS~LEN/41/03exdog5e.pdf

I checked the manual for 'CHECK ENGINE ZONE' and could find no reference to this for the 2003 Expedition.

There is a Service Engine Soon light though.

I looked all over the manual and could find no instrument cluster light to that effect.

Can you tell me what page refers to this?

My Ford Explore 2003 has engine service soon light on. What shall I do with it?


Go to an autozone they can read the codes and reset the light. They do this as a free service. If there is a problem and you dont repair it the light will return. Sometimes the light can come on for no apparent reason (no code present) a loose gas cap can trigger the check engine light.

Service Engine Soon light came on


This means it's time for a service..But have it diagnosed with a computer and maybe sometimes resetting it solves this problem.If the light comes back again then you need a servicing of the engine.
