The engine light is one & the light with the key inside is also coming on which is causing my truck to shut off while driving
If the "check engine" light illuminates, it
will either blink or remain constant, depending on the problem. Either
should have the vehicle checked by a
mechanic, although a blinking light or, on some cars, a red light
instead of a yellow/orange
light indicates a problem that needs
immediate attention. In late-model cars, a blinking light usually
indicates an engine
misfire so severe that unburned fuel is being
dumped into the exhaust system, where it can quickly damage the
requiring an expensive repair. If that
happens, you should reduce power and have the car or truck looked at as
soon as possible.
If the light is steady, the problem is not an
emergency, but you should schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
Check codes stored with this procedure... turn key at on/off on/off on position (dont start engine) and read the odometer codes some number as Pxxxx code, note this and send us the information to give additional tips.
