P0497 = evaporative emission system low purge flowcel if you want to try and fix this problem, buy a new genuine Honda gas cap and see if the light turns back on. if that doesnt work, the job can get very expensive to diagnose and fix. The next thing a dealer would do is run an evaporative function test (~$100) to see what is leaking.

false When the engine light came on it is telling you that there is a serious problem occurring in the engine management system or CPU. The correct procedure is to run the fault codes to find out the faulty sensor/servo. Check coolant level at the radiator cap. Fix any faults and then have a code reader used to reset the engine light

Check engine light on, code P0443


Was the repair facility a Hyundai dealership? If not, I would recommend a second opinion from a certified dealership. This way you will have more information and a better idea as to how much the repair will cost.

The canister in your evaporator system may need to be replaced. These will fill with emissions and cause a trouble code. Hope this helps.

Engine light on- PO421 Catalyst system bank 1


taken from: http://forums.evolutionm.net/lancer-troubleshooting/349095-code-p0421-call-mitsu-before-you-do-anything.html

Code P0421- Call Mitsu before you do anything! I called my nearest dealership today and for those who dont know, if your check engine light is on and its showing fault code P0421 this may be from a factory recall on the warm-up converter and a PCM reflash. MILEAGE OF THE CAR DOES NOT EFFECT THIS RECALL. Anyone whos had problem with a dealership not doing the repairs because of mileage needs to contact another dealer or the owner of the dealership. This is what the service manager told me today so though I'd share. Getting mine fixed tomorrow at 10am, I cant wait.

For more information about this code Google "Fault Code P0421" You'll get tons of information Last edited by Swankzer; Jun 2, 2008 at 12:31 PM.

Engine light is on it says service engine


Take it to a dealership, they will read the codes that the car gave you. The engine light comes on telling you to take you r car in so it can be fixed because something is wrong.

My Engine light is on and i dont no way


Take it into a dealership. The light is there so that you will know that your car wants to go in, and have the tech look at it. Basically they'll hook up a scanner, print off a list of codes that your car says is wrong, and they dealership will fix what you tell them to.

Check engine light keeps coming on.


resetting it doesn't fix what made the light come on... take it to your nearest autozone and have them scan the codes (free)

My engine light stays on


it may be a stored problem that fixed itself but the error codes need to be cleared by a diagnostic machine i think its like 40-60$ at a dealership
