Engine lights go on when there is a problem with a sensor sending values that are out of specifications.

Have the engine's computer scanned at your local dealership which will have the right scanner and updates for the 2008 Saab 9-3.

One can also try autozone and advance auto parts to see if they can scan it for free.

Good luck on this repair djbird2468.

Why would you tell anyone that?

Check for codes

You know the check light is on & is where you start

There is no resetting a check light

My daughter has an '88 F250 with the 460. Recently the engine races when starting and running, never going back to idle. Check Eng light is on


Have them spray (lightly) starting fluid around the intake with the truck running. If there is a leak the engine will idle up even more. They may also just need to adjust the throttle linkage.

2004 dodge neon sxt shakes when started and when it comes to a stop


I'll bet the light is on because you have a miss-fire or two.
Have the computer scanned for trouble codes - it may tell you which cylinders to look at.

I drive a 2004 Golf 5, GT import. The engine had been recently worked on, and after doing some 1500km, the EPC light came on, and lost power. I switched off the engine and restarted again after a few...


First of all you need to access the Engine Control Module (ECM) using suitable diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car, in order to pull out all DTC's memored. DTC = Diagnostic Trouble Code. Then you will bu full informed about the root cause of the problem, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the EPC (Electronic Pedal Control) yellow light will turn OFF.

Can't get the check engine light to go out on our 2005 Trailblazer. Recently replaced the spark plugs, air filter and previous to this a recent oil change as well.


There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

I have a Mazda 3 year 06', the engine light recently came on... I have the oil changed every 3k, since I bought the car 3 years ago. Recently, it has been making a shuttering noise coming from the engine....


Look's like you have kept up with your car, but if engine light came on you need to have engine diag. done to find out what's going on, it's on because engine computer pick up a bad signal from one of your sensor, have it check out.Good luck.
