If an Autozone or Advanced Auto is in your area typically they will read these for codes at no charge to you. Once you know what the codes are post them in here and further assistance will be available.

The amber engine light stays on and don' go off, don't know why.


run the fault codes to find out why the light is on. If lights are ignored because of a lack of understanding of what they are on for means big dollars sooner or later.

What's your problem? amber engine light stays on after starting my car


Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Jag X-Type 2.0 V6 Auto (2002). Amber engine icon lit and aircon switches itself on. No loss of power/drives great. Temperature gauge appears all normal. After a while aircon switches itself off again -...


The Amber Engine Icon means the same as a Check Engine Light. Your car's ECM (Computer) has stored a Trouble Code, and you will need a OBD II Reader (On- Board Diagnostic) to get the code so you can diagnose what is wrong with your vehicle. You can go to any AutoZone and they can read the code for you at no charge. You will need to diagnose and fix the problem before the Check Engine Light will turn off.

Amber check engine light on a 2003 chevy 2500.


This means your vehicle has failed to complete one or more of a series of self-diagnostic tests, usually but not always emissions related. The only way to find out which system has failed the test is to have the Diagnostic Trouble Codes read with special diagnostic equipment. Once you know the codes stored in your vehicle's computer, it will help determine what repairs are needed.

My 2003 SAAB 9-3 check engine light and transmission light came on giving codes PO741 torque converter CKT performance or stuck off and PO743 torque converter circuit electrical what does this mean


unfortunately this means you need to get yourself to a trusted transmission repair facility very quick. the torque convertor on your vehicle is not operating the way it should. this is going to be an expensive repair, i tell you this so your not suprised. but do your homework and find someone with a great reputation for their work. dont take your saab to just anyone. these cars can get really screwed up without the right people workin on it. the transmission will need to come out.
