it is the check engine light symbol. good luck James FLASHING Engine Light - BAD, Park the car and have it Towed to your repair place STEADY Engine Light, drive the car to a place that can pull the code. Most Commonly .. The Millenias and their Commonwealth cousins the "Xedos" all suffered a commo…n defect resulting in MOST CEL issues. This engine configuration typically results in the need for replacement of 1 to 2 O2 sensors and / or the DREADED Knock Sensor embedded deep in the Manifold assembly. Mine ran 3 years with this CEL on due to the cost of labour to replace. The sensor was only 165 bucks while the labour to install was nearly 800. I will admit once it was replaced I was not only legal again for the Emmissions test, but the thing ran better than it ever did PLUS I got nearly 2 points to my highway Mileage. Now the codes are confusing on this because two of the O2 sensors share the same circuit and the code wont necessarily identify WHICH o2 is actually bad, that unfortunately is hit or miss. The KNOCK sensor code is separate and distinct however but all of this results in a costly set of repairs. Good Luck ( Full Answer )

That is most likely the Check Engine Light. In most usual cases, it's just a faulty sensor you need to replace. Any dealer of your brand of vehicle has code readers for these lights and could tell you what sensor is faulty. Beware, they can be costly though. Anything computer is. I believe you would… not pass inspection if this was not fixed. Now if the Service Vehicle Soon light came on, stop driving it, you'd have a major issue that could kill the engine. ( Full Answer )

With the engine running the light going off is a good thing, it means no problems detected by the onboard computer. The light would only be lit when the engine is experiencing a problem, need to have a scanner h…ooked up to read the codes to see what is going wrong. ( Full Answer )
