Hi the check light comes on when the computer detects a problem with the car either small or large, it is also an early warning that something is on its way out, i would drop into a garage and get them to read the fault code its usually cheap, quick and tells you exactly what is wrong before you start replacing things

Alternator not charging the battery on 2002 Trailblazer. Alternator checks good at the parts store, the engine starts and runs great, but get "Battery not charging" message on the dash.


dash board may have come away, there is a wire that feeds tot he dash that tells the dash that voltage is being made anything below 12 volts would indicate there is not enough voltage, it could also be the connection on the alternator, there is a single thin wire that goes into the wiring and goes to the dash this is the feed wire to tell the dash what voltage is being made, sometime this connection can get weak and not contact properly so the dash would indicate no voltage being made, it would be best to replace the connection.

Subaru not starting but the dash board lights are on


Either timing is out or your engine has dropped a cylinder
Machine head and replace all old for new cylinders
Make sure cylinder one is set at bottom dead centre or the engine will suck air rather than blow air

Check engine appears on the dash board of my subaru and goes after some time .what does indicates


Hello and welcome to FixYa!
If the check engine lights appear occasionally then the engine surely needs diagnostic. I strongly suggest that you take it in to a reputable auto repair shop to have the engine scanned. This will show the trouble codes and by then you'll know what part to be replaced.

This is wiser than guessing on what parts to be replaced. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

On dash board the "service


Hi, please have the car scanned at your local parts chain and send us the trouble codes. We must have the specific codes beginning with a "P" and followed by 4 digits to help you.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5932051-check_engine_light_check. These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

My check engine light appears sumtimes on my dash board. What does that mean, I've just had service and wof and all is fine. Why is this coming on sumtimes


The PCM (computer) is sensing an intermittent fault in one of the engine management components. A code reader will be needed to read any of the fault codes stored in the PCM. This would be the first place to start a diagnosis.

I think these codes are indicating a fault with your catalytic converter. The 02 sensors are each not returning the correct values to the ECM, causing a "suspect the 02 sensors" fault code.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.
