Take your vehicle to an autoparts store that checks this for you. They will pull a code from their scanner, which will tell you what the problem is. Or buy a scanner yourself, you'll pay for it the first time you fix your problem yourself.

SOURCE: my check engine light keeps on coming on and

The Check Engine light comes on when the ECU detects a problem with the emissions system. Rarely does it come on and then go off again. Make sure your gas cap is tight. Turn it until you hear it click 3 times. If that is not the problem then you need to have the ECU scanned with an OBD2 scan tool if the light comes on and stays on. If it just comes on intermittently then do nothing until it stays on all the time which it eventually will.

The check engine light means you should have the engine computer checked for trouble codes. The gauge problem could be the sending unit in the tank.

Check Engine Light comes off and on


When the Check Engine Light is flashing ON it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.

In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Check engine light is on, went to auto zone ,checkers and the dealer to have them check it out, came back with transmission slippage, have not notice any slippage, the overdrive light keeps blinking when...


It needs transmission work. Just because you cant feel it, doesnt mean its not there, the trans computer compares shaft speeds and knows theres a problem. If you keep driving it, it will get worse and leave you waliking.

Oil gauge keeps coming on, keep checking oil is good but gauge keeps coming on why? shuts off when we start up again but after a few miles comes on again but when we turn off motor and star up dosen't...


This oil (I'm assuming you mean the light) gauge is telling you not that your oil is low, but that your oil pressure is low. This can happen in high mileage engines after they've gotten worn out, or if the oil pressure sender fails or gets plugged. You'll want to have someone check your oil pressure with a manual gauge to verify which is the problem, and then it'll either mean a new sender, or a different or overhauled engine.

My check engine light keeps flashing 7 times in a row. What does that mean?


When the check engine light comes on that means there is a problem. The computer has logged a problem, you can take it to dealer or professional and they can read the stored code and suggest a solution to the problem.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON


The light is coming back on because the cars computer is detecting that there is still a problem after it's reset. You need to have the engine codes scanned to determine what the problem is and correct it so the light can be reset. Check your local auto parts store, most do free scans of engine codes and will give you the meaning of the codes and what to do to fix the problem. If you need further help, post the codes here and any other info regarding the problem. Good luck

Car light comes on


That light is the check engine light, it means a fault has occurred in the engine management system, have a trouble code test run by a Kragen or Auto Zone, it is free. Also here is a link to your owners Manual from Ford's fleet site.
