Hello,

This means you do need to take your car into your dealer for some maintenance that is quite critical depending on your mileage.

If you have recently changed the battery or had the battery disconnected you may need to reset your onboard computer and this is usually only done at an authorized Mitsubishi shop such as your dealer. It requires a password or code from a computer assisted device connected to the jack in your engine compartment.

Regards,
Worldvet

    Q: What to do if my "Check Engine" light is on?
    A: The simplest way is to visit your local dealer for proper diagnostic. They have all the equipment and information needed to correct the problem. The problem might even be covered by the manufacturers warranty and possibly repaired free of charge.

    Q: Is it safe to drive if my "Check Engine" light is on?


    A: It really depends what code is stored and what caused it. In worst cases driving with "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. A car may even stall while driving. If your check engine light came on, I'd certainly recommend to visit your dealer or a mechanic as soon as possible, just to be on a safe side. If the Check Engine light is flashing, this means that the engine computer (ECM) has detected that your engine is misfiring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Have the your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.

Service engine soon light is flashing


Have the car scanned for the code's origin. This could mean that the engine will not work as well as it should, and could cause driveability isues.

A constant service engine soon light means that a hard code exists. A flashing light means that an intermittent code exists, but it could become a hard code very quickly.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero. What does it mean when the anti brake light, service engine soon, and traction off light comes on at the same time?


I am assuming its not the service engine soon light it is probably the service vehicle soon light, There are 2 lights service vehicle soon upper left side, and service engine soon upper right side.

When all these come on at the same time it is the wheel bearing sensor. Usually the wheel bearing needs to be replaced which houses the sensor. A sure way to check is to press your sls button by your shifter and see if the light goes out, If it does not, u will need to have a wheel bearing put in.

This means it's time for a service..But have it diagnosed with a computer and maybe sometimes resetting it solves this problem.If the light comes back again then you need a servicing of the engine.
