Yes it is stored in the volatile memory of the fuel injection computer, you will need a scanner to access this info, I think Kragen (and other chain parts stores) does this test for free, call them, the reason they do it free? so they can sell you parts! good for business.

I have toyota Gaia wit 1az-fse engine when engine check light comes on it loses accelleration power,so we changed the fuel pressure sensor nothin changed next we changed computer bt after some time th


In stead of changing what is not wrong, save money and time by having the fault codes read and fixing the fault
check engine lights refer to both an engine problem and a transmission problem so what you may have could be in the transmission.

Check engine light


If you havent had your timing belt changed that coulod be the problem ,, the engine is scheduled for timing belt change after a certin amount of time. If you had sensors changed or major part replacement then the brain box would neet the error codes cleared or it will still think the problem exist and give a warning.

Chances are if something were wrong with the engine besides the service date nearing you wnt be driving.., BTW when the date comes closer you car will shut it self down ..

Have someone with a diagnostic tool have a look at it to make sure,, this will tell you the due service time as well as if any codes are there..

It could also be the fuel injection system needs servicing.

What makes the check engine light come on


The vehicle is equipped with a computer to record engine faults. If trouble is detected, the fault is recorded and the check engine light is illuminated. One such instance is a faulty fuel cap. For example, If the vapor pressure is not correct because of ethanol in the fuel causing the release vent to stick. The wrong pressure will be recorded as a fault. The fault must be cleared to turn the engine check off. One such method is to use a code reader to determine the cause and reset the fault. Other ways include disconnecting the power to the computer.

My abs light and check engine light comes on some times when i start it, and stays on till i turn it off, but sometimes they dont dont come on at all?


You should have the computer scanned for trouble codes. When the check engine light or ABS warning light is on the computer should record trouble codes to direct the mechanic as to what to check.

2002 impala wont start and check engine light is on


You may have multiple issues here. I'd start by having the codes pulled from the computer and see what's going on. Have you done a complete tune up lately? That may account for your stalling and maintaining a normal temp. As far as the oil, write down the date and mileage, then top off your oil. Check it regularly and record each time and the amount you use to top it off. This will soon show an accurate record of your usage and you can then determine if your usage is normal or is also a problem. You should also keep an eye on your anti-freeze and keep similar records. (Really, you should do this for the trans as well but I think the trans is safe to rule out as a source of trouble this time) Please let me know how you've made out. Thanks and good luck!

ETS Warning light and check engine lights came on at the same time


On certain issues that cause the 'check engine' light to come on, the 'computer' shuts off the 'Electronic Traction System' (ETS) to save power incase it is needed due to the issue. The main thing to focus on in this situation is why is the 'check engine' light on. You can go to your local auto parts store and ask them to check what code(s) is being given. Once the issue that is making the 'check engine' light is fixed then the 'ETS Off' light should also turn off.

Car won't start. Have replaced plugs and oil filter. AA repair man checked plugs and got a shock.


Four elements must be present for engine operation: 1. Fuel, 2. Air Flow, 3. Ignition (spark), 4. Cylinder Compression (assuming everything is in time/synchronized). Did the Check Engine light come ON? Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/saved in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what it/they is/are, then perhaps we can help you. Otherwise, take/tow the vehicle into a Hyundai Service Center (dealership), pay the diagnostic fee. They will tell you EXACTLY what the problem is and what's needed to fix it (parts, labor, tax, time-frame, etc.).

Check engine light will not turn off '99 Ford zx2


Looks like you have tried everything to turn off the check engine light. However, did you find out the error code for this? Until you resolve the issue, the light will keep coming back. You need to get diagnostics done
