The list is long, that's why they make code scanners. they plug into your cars computer and will read what problem code is occurring. If u would like to know for sure take car to advance auto and ask them to scan it for you and then print out solution.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. Since there are over a hundred things that can make your check engine light come on, you need to take it to Autozone or Advanced to have your computer scanned. They do not charge anything and they will let you know what the code is and what it says. This is your best bet because they are many things that cause it to come on. Thanks for using FixYa. Once you know the code, you can come back and let us know and we will be glad to help you.

Service engine soon light


The service engine soon could be an indicator that you need to have minor maintenance done in the near future. I had a Grand Am that the service engine light would turn on when I was getting close to needing an oil change. You might check your owners manual for an exact reason as to why it turns on.

I have a 2001 Hyundai accent and the check engine light came on yesterday so i took it to the shop and he said the computer was reading that the valve sensor was messed up but he looked at it and said it...


Check engine lights come on for a reason read on please.

The information below was complied by me, it explains what causes the check engine light to come on and the process of finding the cause.

When the Check Engine light (or Service Engine Soon or small picture of an engine) is turned on, the systems computer control unit (called the PCM) has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system. When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different. There are about 200 possible system faults (the gas cap is just one of them) that turn the Check Engine light on, to know what has developed a problem you must have the system tested, this is called an OBD2 fault code test, Kragen/Oriley and Autozone parts stores (USA only) do this testing for free.

Will check engine light turn on if serpantine belt needs replacing?


No. The service engine soon light will come on for other reasons than a cracked belt that is largely still intact and turning the accessory pulleys.

I have the same car and if the gas cap is loos for any reason the service engine light will come on so check that. If it is it will turn off in a few days after you tighten it.
