If the service engine light is on the computer has stored a problem code. Use a code scanner to find out what the code is. The computer has specific information about what is wrong with your vehicle, there is no need for anyone who has only read about your observations to guess. Code readers are available at most auto parts retailers. You can usually borrow, rent or buy one. Many auto parts retailers will let you borrow a code reader in hopes that you will buy the parts from them. The code readers are very easy to use and usually give you quite specific information about what's wrong. If the service engine light is on the computer has stored a problem code.

You should notice lack of power and a rough idle. If you are still running you are lucky; get it checked out ASAP. When this happened with my vehicle(grand am 2001 se), it was a module problem. Had to be replaced.

Can a brake problem cause the service engine light to come on?

What model do you have? I am saying no to your question. In most vehicles the service engine light deals with the operation of the "engine", igniton system, exhaust, and fuel system. If there is a problem with the brakes you could see an ABS light (if equiped) or a BRAKE! light on. If the Service engine soon light is on in your vehicle the problem lies in one of those systems. Good Luck

Why is your 2002 Pontiac bonnaville AC blowing hot air?

Because something is wrong with it. Without actually diagnosing the problem, that's about as much of an answer as you can get to this question. I'd recommend you go to a service center and have them do an AC system performance test in order to diagnose the problem.


How do I know if the exhaust is broken?

The next time you have the vehicle serviced ask to have the exhaust system inspected. Most service stations will give the vehicle a safety inspection (during an oil change) which would include the exhaust system at no extra charge. If you suspect there is a problem with the exhaust now, don't wait. Carbon monoxide fumes could be getting into the cabin area which can be deadly.

The red Check Engine light and the amber Service Engine Soon light serve the same purpose. It is unlikely that a vehicle would have both. The trouble diagnostic codes have to be retrieved in order to determine if the problem is performance or emmissions related.
