After driving my 2007 honda pilot for about 25 to 30 miles the engine light comes on then VSA light comes on then I lose power.SO I shut it off the car & have to wait a while then I can drive a li


Why did you not leave the vehicle at a repair shop or dealer
to be properly diagnosed & repaired

Any time you get any dash light on after the motor is running I
check for codes that day & get on with the required checking
& resolving within days or use another vehicle

You should stop using a vehicle with check lights & faults
& forget the free codes checks at the parts stores


Always use a professional scan tool & look at all data real time
generic & enhanced something a code read won't do & go for
a long road test with the scan along

Cylinder misfires will ruin an expensive exhaust converter
as will vacuum leaks,leaking injectors etc.

Today's vehicles need to be 100% or parked or you create
problems,do damage,run up your repair costs & shorten the
life of the vehicle all thanks to the Govt Emission non-sense

The check engine light on my 2008 Kia Spectra came on tonight as I was driving home. I live at least 30 miles from the nearest auto service shop. Is it safe to drive my car to the shop?


probably, the check engine light could come on for so many reasons that i wouldnt have space here to list them, if it the first time its come on, then your probably ok, i have friends who continually drive with the check engine light and thier car seems just fine....

Write down the codes , then clear them up , and go for a road test.When above event happens , stop and check the code right away , see what you find and repair according to the code.
I would lean toward TPS too, but I may be wrong.
Fuel pressure can do it too.

Dash lights blink, engine stalls then runs on 1997 Buick LeSabre


Given the amount of electronic's on your vehicle , an control modules , have a full vehicle scan done . Not at a parts , thier diagnostic tool will not check BCM -body control module , Instrument cluster , air bag module codes . Your vehicle maybe have communication problem between modules . Suggest you google GM class 2 serial data communication network .

2009 ford fusion engine light stays on steady


You just have to disconnect the battery for 1/2 hour. then reconnect and drive for 10 miles so computer can relearn your engine again. It may run rough. You should have the key off when refueling because computer sensed a fuel vapor leak during fueling and turned the light on.

Also, you can always drive with a check engine light on. It just means you are not meeting emissions. Do not drive if it's flashing on and off.

Check engine light reset


You need to run the monitor. Which means you have to drive for at least 25 miles(or one day), before you go back to the smog station.
