could be a number of things, need to slef computer check, by turning the key to the on position then off, then on again, then off again, and on but leave it on the thrid time, watch your dit read out where your milage counter is, the codes will flash and when "done" flashes, the computer is done of self check mode. computer will hold codes im memory for a long time, check on web sites for what coades are what, and when fixed, diconnect the battery for about 2 mins to reset the memory of the computer. good luck
To figure out the codes (flashes) when you do that, it will begin by flashing once, wait a second, then flash twice (code 12) that's the beginning of the test. There will be a few second delay between the code numbers. The last one will be code 55 (meaning end of test). Several places have the meaning of the codes but an occassional check engine light is most likely the oxygen sensor. Its rather common. Usually code 21.
Several things could be making the Lumina growl. Check the belts and pulleys on the front of the engine. Check the engine mounts as well. Either of these areas can cause the problem of the growling noise.
When a check engine light comes on, it means that there are issues with the engine. It gets turned off when the person resolves the problem that caused it to turn on.
It is not supposed to be on when engine is running unless there is a problem.
The same way you turned it on
Use an OBD code scanner to find out why the computer has turned on the check engine light.
Not sure if this relates to your situation, but my 97 Montero Sport is notorious for activating the check engine light when I have not turned the gas cap until it clicks several times. I was warned about this when I bought it - not sure if it was more sensitive in that year. In fact, sometimes after it comes on I go and re-fuel, re-tighten the cap, and it goes off on its own...
check your oil level?
The check engine light on a Mazda CX7 can be turned off by attaching an OBD II code reader. It can both read the engine codes and turn off the check engine light.
check engine light. it means you should eather check your "codes" or go to an auto shop and tell them your check engine light is on. sometimes its free.
My girlfriend told me the Lightning Bolt was lit on her New Beetle dash. I did not know what it was and could not look at it for several days. It turned out to be the Check Engine Light. It has a Lightning Bolt across an engine symbol
The best way is to check the engine and refill on anything that needs fixed. Then you will be able to go into your settings and get it turned off.
Check the engine oil, sometimes when the oil is low the check engine light comes on while sitting still and goes out when you accelarate.
You have to get the engine looked at.
Check the keyswitch.
If the check engine light is blinking that means an engine cylinder misfire has been detected
Yes, some rotors can be turned if there is enough material to work with. I would check my local parts store and check the price of a new one cause sometimes the cost is about the same.
No, leave the engine off to check the oil. When you start the engine it sucks all the oil out of the crankcase, so none will appear on the dipstick.
Scan tool, will give you a trouble code as to why the computer turned the check engine light on.
engine stalls sometimes driving
That sounds like problem in the cluster. The high beam indicator is cross wired to the check engine light when it shouldn't be.
I turned off h radio and engine. Turned the engine back on and it was gone,
With a scan tool after repairing the code that turned it on.With a scan tool after repairing the code that turned it on.
Because the computer has detected a fault and turned it on.
check the battery and connections/cables
Check engine lights come on for several reasons. I own a 98 Monte and my check engine light comes on alot. It could be any thing from a un clipped sensor, fuse, oil needs changed or checked. Take it to Pep Boys or Autozone they check out your check engine light for free.
