It is possible that your alternator might be going out. It also could be a problem with your battery. You should have it checked by a professional or you could be stranded .

Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes. This should reset it. If it comes back on, you have a problem with the engine management system.

A reset Engine Service Light comes on when an issue comes up with in the engine. This light can be reset by a tech or by fixing the problem.

unless the battery has been disconnected, a history of previous codes is retained in memory and you will be able to tell why your service engine light was on earlier. disconnecting the battery erases all codes - you would have to wait until service engine light comes on again to read any recent codes. good luck!

If your engine is running , and the battery light comes on , that indicates that your battery is not being charged
