Could be anything...
Start by getting a scanner hooked up to see what the trouble code is, and then go from there. (Once the trouble is fixed, the light should go out on it's own.) Also, make sure the fuel cap is tight!

    A scanner, is just a tool that hooks up to youe vehicles OBDII (2) link, which is located under the dash in the drivers area, around your left knee. Some auto parts stores will do this for free.

Why Did the Vsc and check engine light come on in 2005 toyota highlander?


The converters generally fail only after the truck has been running rich. I would not replace them until certain the engine is running properly. There is no harm to the car to drive with these converters. Was there any history of rich operation codes?

Where is the oil sending unit on a 1990 SIlverado 5.7?


The sending unit is behind the distributor on top of the block. And if the service engine light comes on, most auto parts stores like Pep Boys will check your car for free, and if it only comes on while running but not while driving that will steer you in the right direction. But I would try this first, reset the computer. To reset the computer in your vehicle all you need to do is disconnect your battery for 5 minutes, then reconnect your battery and your computer will start fresh, if a there is a problem a sensor sends a signal back to the computer.

Check the oil pressure with a mechanical test gauge and it will likely be ok, if so replace the oil pressure sending unit. Do not use any oil thickener in this engine it can damage the bearings.

My change oil light never goes off even though I had it changed and now my service vehicle soon light is on even though its been running fine


The change oil light needs to be reset after each oil change...some shops are not knowledgeable on how to do this...Your owners manual will instruct you how to reset the oil change light...The service engine soon is a catch all for low fluids and other needs...Be sure to check your oil level again...to clear the service engine soon light, you can disconnect either battery cable for 15 minutes then reconnect...if the service engine stays on...then you need to have your Grand Am checked...Auto Zone does a free diagnostic of check engine light codes...:)

2006 corolla- check engine light comes on. i replaced the battery (old) and i reconnect it it runs fine for about a minute no warning lights then shuts off check engine light is lit and will crank but not...


Does it run for a full minute or start then shut off within a few seconds?
If the latter, then it sounds like the anti-theft system has kicked in and needs to be reset.
