Check engine light is on and off periodically. What is the problem?

You would have to get the vehicle scanned for error codes. They remain even after the light goes out unless cleared.

Engine code po456

When a diagnostic code is set the service engine light will remain on until the code is cleared. Even if the malfunction was an intermittent problem the light stays on. Try to erase the fault code with your OBD2 code scanner.

The check engine light remained on, even after installing a leak detection pump.

Hi, not sure what code you had, but if the repair was appropriate, give the car a day or so to clear the code. The EVAP system needs a good amount of road time to check itself out. If the code doesn't clear, please send me the code and I will advise on any additional things you can check.

How to clear codes/check engine lite

under the hood on the left side is a fuse panel, if there is a single EFI fuse, remove it for 30 seconds or so, if there is more than 1 efi fuse remove them both along with the fuse marked e.t.c.s. leave them out for 1 minute or so and that will erase the code and reset the light. make sure the key is switched off before removing fuses

Engine light is on

There are a very large number of reasons the check engine lite will come on. Some conditions will clear but the lite will stay on until it is cleared manually. I would susgest taking it to the dealership or too a local mechanic who can use a scanner to read the code that is locked in. If the problem no longer exists than they can clear the code and the lite will go out and if their is a problem with the car the code should give you/them a place to start.

Check Engine Light

There are many many problems that can cause your check engine lite to come on. Some of those problems will not let the lite go out until it is cleared with a handheld computer. (Even if the condition that caused the lite to come in, has cleared) But as far as the 2 comments go, a fuel injector cleaning would be a good invsement here. It is a good possibility that this is your problem and if it isn't, it is still very good for your engine performance and fuel consumption so wouldn't be a bad investment. If your vehicle is still under warrenty I would also talk to dealer about reading computer. Even if the check engine lite is not on, some codes will store in the computer that it came in and cleared so the dealer would be able to tell you what code came in to cause the lite to be on. It would at least be a starting point to look at for troubleshooting.
