Why would the antilock brake light come on?

Antilock Brake Light comes on and stays on when the ABS computer detects some problem with the antilock brakesystem components. You will still have normal brake use, but the Antilock system will probably not work as an Antilock brake system is supposed to work. ABS system diagnostic code readers are available and are recommended for diagnostic purposes, however fixing ABS systems is perhaps best left up to the Pros. . .

Why is your check engine light still on if you already cleaned the EGR valve and the vacuum works?

The "Check Engine" light is a diagnostic indicator showing that the On Board Diagnostic computer has detected a problem and has saved the trouble code. You can get the trouble code from the OBD system using a special computer attachment. Most auto parts stores will get the trouble code for you for free (and be happy to sell you the part that would need to be replaced.) Check the trouble code to insure that it is referring to a flow issue. If the electrical system is at fault, consult your service manual for the proper test.

How do you turn off the service light on a 1997 ford fairmont?

All vehicles since 1996 have OBDII (On Board Diagnostics II) built in. the "check engine" or "service" light is part of the OBD system that indicates a failure code is in the on board computer. the light is turned off by clearing the memory using an OBD scan tool (plugs into the diagnostic port). If the light comes back on, the fault is still present and will need to be diagnosed and repaired.

What colour comes through when red light goes through a blue filter?

Can you use a diagnostic machine if the check engine light doessnt come on?

Yes, but usually no codes will come up on a scanner without eng light on which means no trouble in any system. A diagnostic machine may still be able to find something or can tell general condition. Your best bet is a mechanic that is an expert on your particular model if you suspect something is amiss.

Can you still drive your car after the ABS light comes on?

It is highly recommended that you have the car checked as soon as possible. The light comes on to signify a problem with the ABS. However, when the ABS fails the brake system will function just like the pre-ABS equipped vehicles. Yes, you can still drive it.

How do you turn off the service engine soon light on a 2002 camaro?

This light comes on when the computer on your car has set a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code). You can use a scan tool or go your local parts and have them use on to read these codes and, if you wish, clear them so that the light goes off. Doing this may be in vain because if the problem indicated by the DTC is still present, the light will come back on. The only way to keep the light off is to find and repair the root cause of the DTC and then clear the code.

cycle the key 3 times to read the codes.. it should shut the light off.. but if you still have a problem it will still come back on. if that doesnt work go to autozone or discount auto parts.. they have a obd tool that can read and clear diagnostic codes.. but if you have a problem it might not be a good idea to ignore the light.
