Best Answer

You're talking about the "check engine" light. The car's computer turns the light on for one of two reasons: 1) a sensor has detected a condition that is preventing the car from operating within specifications, or 2) a sensor is faulty. In either case, you should have the car checked by a knowledgeable professional to determine why the light is on. They'll do this by connecting a code reader to your car's computer and determining what code(s) have been set.
