The check engine light only comes on when the computer control unit (called the PCM) senses a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system u will seldom feel the car engine run any different, there are about 200 possible faults that turn the light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Still need a repair shop, any time any dash light
comes on, after the motor is running

Cannot get the 2001 Hyundai Elantra to pass the emissions test as the light stays on. When we shut it off, it will come back on after a few miles.


You need to have your check engine light checked to see what the code errors are and repair the problem so that it will pass smog. The check engine light is on telling you that something is wrong with the vehicle.

When the check engine light is flashing, that usually means you have a serious issue. The vehicle shouldn't be driven, and should be taken to a repair shop or dealer.

How do you remove the "Service Engine Soon" on a


the check engine light alerts you that there are problems. There will be a code or codes stored in the engines computer. You can retrieve these codes one of three ways.

1. call your local auto parts store. Many times they will do this for free.

2. buy an inexpensive code reader. Available just about anywhere that has an automotive department. They will start at about $50.

3. Bring it in to a shop to have a check engine light diagnostic done.

Once you know the code you can then start to focus on a repair. Once a repair is made the codes will be cleared and the check engine light will turn off. If you do not make the repairs the light will not stay off. It will continue to come on and stay on until the proper repair is made.

Which warning light? Check engine? Traction? Transmission? Can you give me a more detailed description? With a check engine light Autozone will check it for free and give you the code that caused the light to come on. With the code you can troubleshoot and repair.
