When was the last time you replaced the O2 sensor. Most people negelect replacing it every 50K or sooner if it is all short hops.

SOURCE: service engine light staying on
Hello tdamm...No...the service engine soon (SES) light on your yukon is not telling you to change the oil.
This is a warning light that is illuminated when there is a problem affecting the Emission system and the engines computer management (ECM) has detected it from a fault. It could be something as simple as a loose or defective gas cap. If the SES light is blinking, it's more serious....
The yukon needs to be connected to diagnostic equipment (scanner) for fault diagnosis.
You can go to autozone they will hook up an OBD II scanner to your vehicle and explain the codes to you.
Good luck...i hope this helps and will fixya up.

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.

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.
This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.
In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

just went through this myself. first be sure there are no leaks incap as suggested. second, since computer system pressurizes fuel system as part of emissions, any possible leak, like in filler neck to tank, will trip the check engine. that fixed it for me - last summer. now, new problem showed up again. this time 2 different trouble codes: EGR valve and a pressure sensor. fixed the problem. a week ago, light back on. this time a no $ fix-loose vacumn hose. best advice like the other guys said is to get it scanned and start there.
