The service engine light is the same thing as a check engine light.
They are the same thing.
If an check engine light does not come on it is a good thing. When your check engine light comes on, it means you need service done on your vehicle.
If not installed properly check engine light will illuminate
Please be more specific--there is no such thing as an "engine light". There is a Check Engine Light or Service Engine Soon light. You have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulb for this or any other instrument light.
your check engine light is tellin you there is some thing wrong under the hood you need a OBD reader to check the codes this will tell you what sencer is lacking drive safe
Disconnect the battery. BUT you should have it checked. There's a code stored in memory that is needed to fix the cause of the check engine light being on. If you do the battery thing, don't take it to a service tech and say fix it until the light comes back on.
If both lights are on the same vehicle then they mean 2 different things. Check Engine light means there is a problem with the emissions system. Service Vehicle means you need to perform regularly scheduled maintenance. Can mean you just need to change the oil/filter. Consult your owners manual for more information.
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.
The code with a scan tool.
There are too many codes to list. You must get the code read at a service center to figure out what the problem is. The single most important thing to remember is that if a check engine light is flashing you must shut the vehicle down immediatley.Autozone reads codes for free.
