Service engine light on Chevy monte carlo on after replacing fuel pump

You'll need someone to scan the computer for the trouble codes. Most auto parts stores will scan for free in hopes of selling you some parts.
Once you get the codes you can research them online.

Engine lite comes on 2007 lexas rx350

With some cars when the engine check light comes on and stays on it might mean it's up for it's 10,000k/m service or there's another problem that only the dealership service center can fix or some other place that has all the gear and computers to hook up to it to find out why the engine light is on

Check engine light stays on

Go to Autozone and have them scan it for free. They'll give you a slip that has the code and possible issues with the car. Many times it'll be an oxygen sensor or catalytic converter. You can try resetting the code and see if it comes back. They can do that through the scanner at Autozone. It's a nice service they provide. Also, check to see if your engine needs to be tuned up. My 2000 Honda Odyssey had a check engine light around 105k and I had the parts to tune up (plugs). After replacing the plugs and resetting the check engine light the check engine light never came back.

2007toyota service engine light

You need to have the engine computer scanned with an OBD II code reader.
If the light is on the computer has detected a problem with it's engine or emission controls. As long as the light stays on, the problem is ongoing. You won't know what it is until you get the diagnostic trouble codes retrieved form the computer's memory. Then a technician or someone here may help you solve it.
Autozone and a few other parts stores will read your codes for free.

Why does my traction off light come on?

You either have a problem with your engine control system, the traction control system, or you are not in the correct gear. See the explaination below. This is from the 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier Owner's Manual.


... If you turn the system off by moving the shift lever

to FIRST (1) or SECOND (2), the warning light will

come on and stay on. To turn the system back on,

move the shift lever back to a position other than

FIRST (1) or SECOND (2). The warning light

should go off. (See "Enhanced Traction System"

in the Index for more information.)

 The warning light will come on when you set your

parking brake with the engine running, and it will

stay on if your parking brake doesn't release fully.

If the transaxle shift lever is in any position other

than FIRST (1) or SECOND (2) and the warning

light stays on after your parking brake is fully

released, it means there's a problem with the system.

 If the traction control system is affected by an

engine-related problem, the system will turn off

and the warning light will come on.

If the Enhanced Traction System warning light comes

on and stays on for an extended period of time when the

transaxle shift lever is in any position other than FIRST
(1) or SECOND (2) your vehicle needs service.

Service engine light stays on 2000 LS2 V6

The service engine light means that there is a problem of some sort with your car, usually it's not something that would prevent you from driving the car but you do need to take it to a repair shop and have it checked. Also you can go to a local Autozone parts store and they will check the car and tell you what the problem is and what it would take to fix it, and the best part, Autozone won't charge you for this service.
