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 warning is turned on the 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 faults 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 and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free.

Hi Dennis
The light is warning you that there is a problem with the Engine management system, I cannot and no one else online can tell you what the problem is. But I can advise you to take your car to a workshop and have it scan, the technician will tell you.

Good luck

1995 mighty max dashboard warning lights


Maintenance required light could mean its time for an oil change. Do you have a check engine light too ?
The battery/brake light can mean the brake fluid is low or the battery is not being charged by the alternator.
