If your service engine light is on that means that you can find the problem by having a local garage run an engine diagnostics test,it usually runs around 50 bucks and is much easier than trying to find the problem yourself,and most of the time it is cheaper !

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge


Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

Hi, my name is John i have a 1995 Pontiac SE v-6 3.1 recently my service engine soon light came on but gos off some times and stays on some times checked my fluid levels and wire connections all seen ok.


When the service engine soon light goes on any car, it's a good idea to have the car's computer scanned.

Your car has an OBD-I system which is older, and so you must find someone with an OBD-I scanner who can read the codes off and maybe find a clue.

I would start there. Some codes may be recorded in the memory.

Service engine soon


hi, this is just a reset issue. sometimes the CPU can become confused. the original warning that informed you about your gas cap is still in the cpu's memory. you will have to reset the cpu and, this will clear the warning. After the reset, it will stay off. chevy cpu's tend to do this from time to time.
