Its possible that the light is a change oil maintenance light and will come on when the car has traveled so many miles(kilometers)and needs to be reset.there are different ways to reset depending what system is on yours if this is what it is.if you have an owners manual it will be in may have to go to the dealer to have it reset.its not hard to reset once you know the method,or check with some shops to see if this is what the light is for and to have it reset.

    I had an oil change and the shop tried to reset it but it would not take. They did the reset on my last oil change and it took. So Its not because the need for an oil change.

Why does my service engine soon light stay on for 18 seconds just long enough to make check engine light come on.

have code checked for check engine -the service light and the check engine may be a coincidence but the service are just reminders and the check engine is a problem that the vehicle onboard diagnostics computer found and is letting you know about so most auto stores can scan your vehicle for free and the code will be your start point towards repairing or solving your problem

2002 pontiac grand am has 2 service engine soon lights the one on the right comes on and goes out periodiclly

Usually one is a service vehicle soon and the other service engine soon. They are different. The service vehicle soon is telling you the body has an electrical issue and the service engine is telling you you have a powertrain issue. If you get the codes pulled from the engine at auto zone or another big box part store for free and post the codes we can help. This we do first. Then we can worry about the service vehicle soon.

How can I reset the service light engine? I was told to press the gas pedal down & turn the key to the accessory mode. Pleas advise.

The service engine soon light means that you car's computer has recognized something amiss and has recorded a 'code' in it's memory. Any auto repair shop would be able to plug into your car's computer, retrieve the code and tell you what it says. For a modest fee. Not a good idea to ignore this only can be reset with ob2 scan tool parts store will pull code for free if you ask

When check engine light stays on (1998 Malibu) is there a check list that i can do to eliminate problem

Not unless you want to spend a lot of money to replacements. Stop at one of the major auto parts stores like auto zone or advance auto and ask them to read the stored codes and they can tell you what it means and then you have the option of buying a Haynes repair manual on your vehicle and the part so you can fix the problem yourself.

Check engine light on

Lots of different minor things could cause the check engine light to come on , even something as simple as a loose gas cap.
Most mechanics can plug in a diagnostic tool that will read a code from your computer that will tell them what is causing the light to come on.
This should not be an expensive test.

Service soon engine light is on and it wont go off.

Did you have the computer checked to see what code or codes come up? If not and you have an Advanced Auto store near by they check computer codes for free. They hook up their code reader and it shows the code or codes and lists what the code means.

Spark plug location

yes the service light can come on because of the spark plugs. the best way to find out what the service light is on for is to go to one of the major auto parts stores and they will check it and tell you what you need for free. cant help you with the location of the plugs because ive never worked on this vehicle before.
