This could be anything from a losse petrol cap, to a loose vaccuum line, or a fault with a sensor...or womething else...very hard to diagnose without the error code number...which the engine computer logs when the light comes on......you need to take the vewhilce to a mechanic, or auto-zone on the us who will read the codes for you...this will give you the directioin to which will find the answer

Engine light on


The engine light will come on at 50,000 mile intervals by a pre-programmed setting. If there is nothing wrong with the vehicle, you can reset the light yourself by looking under the dashboard on the drivers side and searching for a small simple tiny switch. Looks just like a typical on off switch and just simply push it to the other side should turn the light off for another 50,000 miles.

My service engine soon light came on 2003 gallant this morning while it was warming up. Is this a service notice that needs to be done or is it acutally the computer telling me something IS wrong? service...


The Service Engine Soon light is a notice from the vehicles on-board computer that a problem has been detected somewhere, and service is required. You can isolate the problem by having the "trouble code" displayed for you at an auto parts store for FREE to determine the exact problem, and possible causes. This should be done FIRST, so that you strategically approach the problem directly instead of spending unnecessary money "guessing or assuming". If you are trying to save a few bucks, you may want to invest in a Chilton's manual for you vehicle as well for step-by-step repair, and diagnostic info specifically for your vehicle. I hope this helps,...and good luck!!

Service engine soon-2003 mitsubishi galant, 87000 miles


it might be the a couple of thngs...

1)catalytic converter messed up
2)oxygen sensor before or after the catalytic converter needs to be replaced.
3)belts need tightening
4)your fuel cap has not been well tightened.

go down to a mechanic and have them check your engine light. They most likely will have a computer to check and narrow down what might be the problem.

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
