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.

Service engine soon light is on . when disconect battery terminal for 3 minutes, and start the engine, it does not throttle for 3 or 4 attempts. the service engine soon light stays on.


It is not SUPPOSED to throttle for 3 or 4 attempts when you start the engine just after disconnecting the battery. Every time you disconnect the battery, your computer has to go through the idle learning process.
Also, every time you disconnect the battery, all you are accomplishing is to remove important information from the computer system that is needed to propery diagnose and repair your vehicle. You are also taking a big risk by doing this because repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting the vehicle battery can damage many EXPENSIVE electronic components including the engine computer, body computer and the radio/stereo system.

My recommendation is to get the vehicle PROPERLY diagnosed and repaired so the light will stay off.

How do i reset the service engine light soon? It stays on after i have changed the oil and filter and reset the oil life sensor to 100%.


The service engine soon light indicates a problem.
Take the vehicle to AutoZone and have them read the computer code.
They can give you an idea of what the problem is and reset the light for you.
BTW the service is free

When I start my 2001 alero the anti-lock, traction light, service engine soon, service vehicle soon lights all stay on all the time. But my car seems to be running fine. Why is this?


the anti-lock and traction lights will come on together if there is a common problem with the two, since they are closely related. may be a wheel speed sensor or something similar. the service engine soon light indicates a problem with the engine computer, can be anything from an emission system problem or an engine performance problem. all of these lights can come on with no apparent running problems on the car. the service vehicle soon light is basically a maintenance reminder, an oil change light. take the car into a shop and have the codes read for these lights.

A service light is staying on. its a yellow light with a wrench


That is you service vehicle soon light. It will come on if a exterior light is out or the service engine light doesn't work. Check all you lights and (parking and head lights) and you fluid levels. Check high and low beams and day time running lights.

Service vehicle soon light


Do all your exterior lights work. Including the daytime running lights. This is the service vehicle soon light and not the service engine soon light? Does the service engine light come on when you turn the key on? The service vehicle light will also stay on if the service engine light is burnt out.

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.
