Its because have some kind of a sensor malfuntion. What you need to do is find out what this code is. You can take the vehicle to your local parts store and they will read this code most of the time for free. Its most likely a sensor this is what your OBD on board diagnostic system dose. It tells you when there is a problem So find out what the code or codes are and then you;ll know what part to replace. Even if you can;t do it your self you will know what you are talking and you won;t get taken to the cleaners when you take it to be serviced. This good advice hope it hepls

Why are Check Engine light and zigzag road drive not vanishing from the dashboard?


Well the check engine light and zigzag lights are probably connected - the zigzag light is probably for traction control.
If there is a problem with the engine the traction control warning light will come on too so the driver knows it is disabled.
You would need to have someone check the engine computer for trouble codes to know what to test.

Car fan running constantly with car on and check engine light on.


Possibly a bad coolant temperature sensor, sending the wrong signal that engine is hot and requires fans to be on for extra cooling. I don't know of any sensors for the thermostat, but don't know saturns.

Need to know how to check the oxygen sensors on a 1996 saturn sl


Don't know if this will answer it. O2 sensors send info to the computer to make adjustments to the emissions system. Over time the O2 sensors fail which cause the computer to light the "Check engine" light. Originally the "Check engine" light was dedicated to an emission system fault. Now manufactures use it for a variety of abnormalities. To know what the "check engine" light means you have to either take it to a mechanic or buy a OBDII scanner (around $100) and read the code yourself. I like to read my own codes. These scanners are good for all modern cars. Instructions are included EZ to follow.
Long story short, don't worry about it the check engine light will come on when O2 sensor fails. Happy motoring!

Engine light on...osd ii unable to read codes...what wrong??


The check engine light will come on for more than just a engine problem but usually something else on the car isn't functioning properly. I had a car with a low fluid level in the transmission that would not read but the check engine light came on.
It is a warning and if it doesn't scan check the rest of the car for what isn't functioning since for sure it is connected.
50% of the time a check engine light comes on it is a loose or bad gas cap. Check that first. The oxygen sensor is next but it will read on your reader.

1992 honda accord running very rough and check engine light came


If the car runs fine until it warms up, then the check engine light goes on and it all goes to hell (sputtering, dying, etc...) then it is most likely the o2 sensor. Take it to autozone and have them put it on the scanner, just be sure to bring it when the check engine light is ON.

Check engine light is on


mcdevito75 here, The check engine light is connected to your cars computer and the computer monitors the engines functions, air fuel ratio, speed, idle, spark etc. when the check engine light comes on, it"s a signal 1 or more of these sensors is not sending correct info to the computer, it could aslso signal 1 or more of the motors the computer controls to run your engine is out of whack, lucily the manufacturers know this and usually the car can be driven fore a short while, but you fisk break down also but un-likeky. Still have your shop run a scan on your cars computer system,
