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.
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.
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.
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.
ONE thing that will do this is disconnect the battery , then reconnect the battery but if the check engine light comes back on then take the veh to the garage for more diagnosing of the systems
There is no such thing as an oil pressure light on most cars. Some cars have oil pressure gauges, and all have a "Engine" light or "Check Engine" light with a picutre of either an oil can, or Engine Block The oil pressure warning light usually looks like a little red oil can. The check engine light looks like a little yellow engine.
First thing you should do is check oil level and radiator and believe this or not if the radiator holding tanks water level is not up to line this will kick on check engine light.
To remove the check engine light off a 1994 VW Jetta is to first get a proper screw drive to twist the nails around the engine light. Next twist the thing until it you here a clicking sound.
first thing is find out what the check engine " light is telling you, Code PO????. then you will get an idea to your question . 2nd answer: I would first suspect low fuel pressure.
It can only mean one thing "Check your engine"
One thing could be an over used belt or a leak of antifreeze
The service engine soon means the same thing for all cars. It means that you have some trouble with your engine and you should see a mechanic A.S.A.P.
you dont really "reset" it, it will come back on as soon as it detects the fault code again. Go to Autozone and get them to do the code check thing. Then you will know what needs repair so it will stay out. This is usually a FREE service.
The most common problem on "Engine light" on the dash board means it's time to change your O2 sensor. the "check engine" light is an indication that there is a problem with the computer controlled and or monitored emissions systems. oxygen sensors are just one thing that could be wrong when the light goes on. a tester is connected which tells the technician where the problem is.
THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS ON FOR MANY REASONS, THE BEST THING THAT YOU CAN DO IS GO TO A PERCISION TUNE IN YOUR AREA TO HAVE THE PROBLEM FIXED.THERE ARE ABOUT 5 DIFFERENT THINGS IT COULD BE, POSSIBLY THE OXIGEN SENSOR IS BAD.THAT IS USUALY THE PROBLEM.
its a little light bulb that will light up and make a bright looking thing on your dash that will glow but if the bulb i sburned out then you will have to get a new bulb
Similar thing happened to me. It was the oxygen sensor that went.
