The only way to erase the chenck engine light on a 96 and newer vehicle is with a SCANNER ALL 96 and newer cars, truck, and SUV's have a computer thats called OBD II (On Board Diagnostics generation 2) The "remove the battery cable trick" only works on some 95 and older vehicles

What does it mean when service engine soon is on in my 99 jimmy?


Not related. The service engine soon lite is operated by the speedometer, so it's just coincidence that it came on soon after the water pump repair.

Take it to your local mechanic to get an OBD code check. It should tell you the problem, and you can get an estimate on the fix unless you want to do it yourself. It could be a fuel filter issue.

I have a 2000 buick lesabre. The fix engine soon


It NEVER was the camshaft sensor! Unless, you've removed the engine lately, which I doubt.
RUN to Advance Auto Parts and buy a can of "SeaFoam" and add to your gas tank per instructions...drive at least 100 miles and the problem should go away...IF it doesn't you'll have to replace the O2 sensors in the exhaust system...Any good mechanic should be able to do this for much less $$ than the dealership DO NOT go to the dealer for repairs!
Good Luck

The light on just means you are not passing emissions. not a big deal unless it's flashing.
Go to Autozone, they will scan test for codes for free.

2002 SATURN VUE- SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT HAS BEEN ON FOR 1 1/2 YRS.


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with some of the components it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you will need to have the car diagnosed and repaired.

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.
