Hello! There are multiple Technical Service Bulletins (TSB'S) issued by General Motors which address this issue...When you get the message "Engine Disabled" the Check Engine Light will come on...This means the computer has a trouble code stored...An example of a code would be; P1516 or P2135...etc...If you can get to an auto parts store they will read the code/codes for free...Once you have that information I can offer a solution...A defective sensor which the code will point to is usually the reason the engine is disabled...Send a comment with code information...Guru...Saailer

How do you remove the "Service Engine Soon" on a


the check engine light alerts you that there are problems. There will be a code or codes stored in the engines computer. You can retrieve these codes one of three ways.

1. call your local auto parts store. Many times they will do this for free.

2. buy an inexpensive code reader. Available just about anywhere that has an automotive department. They will start at about $50.

3. Bring it in to a shop to have a check engine light diagnostic done.

Once you know the code you can then start to focus on a repair. Once a repair is made the codes will be cleared and the check engine light will turn off. If you do not make the repairs the light will not stay off. It will continue to come on and stay on until the proper repair is made.

What does service stabletrak mean?


{: ) If you ever see the SERVICE STABILITRAK message, it means there may be a problem with your StabiliTrakĀ® system. If you see this message, try to reset the system by performing the following: stop; turn off the engine; then start the engine again. If the SERVICE STABILITRAK message still comes on, it means there is a problem. You should see your GM dealer for service. The vehicle is safe to drive, however, you do not have the benefit of StabiliTrakĀ®, so reduce your speed and drive accordingly. Press the select button to acknowledge this message and clear it from the DIC display

Engine light comes on and states "Service Engine


Hello,

The problem is not from the connection from the battery to the starter. There are some problems a car develops due to the fact that it has been used for a long time and have not been serviced.

Like man, when we get ill, we seek a doctor for treatment, so also are cars, when they work for too long, they tend to come up with faults.

Once a car brings up the "Service Engine Soon" message, then you need to know it will either pack up immediately or soon.

So what you have to do is for you to service the engine.

Take care and good luck

What does "service" light mean?


The service light comes on every 5000 miles to remind you to change the oil & check fluids. It is reset with a special tool that connects to the OBDII connector.

Maintenance light comes on when engine starts


Usually that light stays on when you are over due for oil service, but since you state its only staying on for a short period, it might be close for the counter to reach zero miles. What I can suggest is to try and reset the counter for your maintenance light. here is hondas most typical way to resest...." insert key in ignition switch, turn key on to "run" position, do not start the car. with out taking key out return key back to "OFF", now press and hold the odometer trip reset button. while holding button turn the key back ON. Keep holding until you see the light blink/flash or on some models in the odometer window you will see the actual counter reset.
