amber or a yellowish orange color is normal for a check engine light take it to a autozone or a checker oriely's auto parts store and they can run a diagnostic scan on it to tell you what error code is popping up it it is a really major problem the light will be flashing if it is get it checked out!!!
Your computer has found an error. It may be a small one, or not. You need to have someone (A garage) put a scanner to it to read it out. They can also reset it with the scanner. But if your computer still senses an error, it will turn the light on again.
All cars built after 1996 sold in the USA have to have OBDII diagnostics. You don't need to activate anything. To read the code, you can 1. buy a scan tool 2. Pay a garage to diagnose the code 3. Go to your local autoparts chain and they will read the codes for free. Call first.
You may not have a code if your trouble light or check engine light is not on.
An orange check engine light means there is an electronic failure in the engine control system. It could be anything from a loose fuel cap, to a bad sensor on the engine. It is not an emergency, but you should get it checked out. A red engine light is an emergency and requires you to immediately stop the car. Yellow is a warning.
these are evaperative emmisions code 440 is a general evap malf 446 is a small leak code. sometimes these codes are set after fueling, if the fuel cap is not correctly installed. or if the fuel cap has been lost and replaced with one that does not seal well.
