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.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

This warning serves as like a maintenance warning. It can just be a simple oil and filter change. Not a big deal but definitely you need to have an oil change.

I have an 02 montana. No check engine light is on but it failed inspection with a code po135. what is the code and what are my solutions?


It's an oxygen sensor issue. Most cars these days have 2 oxygen sensors. 1 "upstream" of converter and 1 downstream. They compare exhaust before and after the converter. When their measurements equal each other, means converter is not functioning (exhaust is same in & out) and not always triggering dash lights. Either you have a bad sensor or your converter is and, is why you didn't pass inspection.

Service engine light on dash 1999 s-10 pickup


sir, service engine soon is your emissions light malfunction indicator, meaning your car will not pass a smog test. It will not pass inspection in most places either. It can't be reset and stay off till the problem is fixed. Any auto parts store can retrieve the code for you and most like Autozone do it for free, Most common reason for the service engine soon light tends to be an oxygen sensor. But with the code it will lead you to the problem. Hope this helps.
