Pretty self expnatory. You can go to the dealer and have them diagnos the car or.....the worse of the two steps is reset the malfanction yourself and carry on...

What does the service engine light mean on a 2015 Ford Edge

Service Engine Soon

If the Service Engine Soon indicator light stays lit after you've started the engine, the On Board Diagnostics system (OBD) has detected a malfunction of the vehicle emissions control system. Contact your authorized dealer as soon as possible.
If indicator light is blinking, an engine misfire may be occurring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Drive in a moderate fashion (avoid heavy acceleration and deceleration), and have your vehicle serviced immediately.*
The Service Engine Soon indicator light illuminates when the ignition is first turned on (prior to engine start) in order to test the bulb, as well as indicate whether the vehicle is ready for Inspection/Maintenance (I/M) testing.
Normally, the Service Engine Soon light will stay on until the engine is cranked, then turn itself off if no malfunctions are present. However, if after 15 seconds this light blinks eight times, it means that the vehicle is not ready for I/M testing.Check this link out Gary.

2005 honda accord yellow light came on after fueling

Lets review - - yes if the warning light is on because of the gas cap and that problem has been taken care of, the light may go off on its own in time. Or not.
If the warning light is on because of something else, I doubt the engine is in danger of blowing up. The light is on because the computer has found something that will affect performance or emissions. It is a method to tell the driver not to drive the car and pollute the air.
So yes take it to an auto parts store and get it scanned. They can tell you what the codes are and then turn the light off. Depending on the codes, the light may come back on.

The reprogramming preformed is due to a fault in the EGR valve causing faulty actuation. The actuation of the valve prevents soot acumulation in the valve. excessive soot build up could cause the valve to stick. the reprogramming preformed is to prevent this... as for the whine..

Service emission sys warning message on ford scape 2005

if you are saying your check engine or service soon light is on, it's bot a biggie. It just means you are not meeting emissions.

If it is flashing, then you are in need of immediate repair due to too much unburned fuel going to your cataltic converter.

Engine warning light on but runs good on a freelander 2004

the light indicates an emissions problem, since u just had it serviced, u should definitely return to the dealer, call them immediately so they are aware of the problem (if the service dept. is closed for the weekend, I would still call and let someone know of the problem). U will probably have to contact them again monday, but don't let this go, they need to fix it.

could be but it comes up for a reason
I suspect a cat converter malfunction and the explanation to keep the rpms lower indicates that it is not functioning properly or has failed and could be blocking the exhaust system
It could be a simple O2 sensor ( one after te cat converter) that has malfunctioned
don't wiat for the next service but have it checked out by an accredited service center and have the fault codes read
