Best Answer

Your cars ecu reads inputs from many sensors and sends outputs to many controls based on that information. Any one of the components could have failed causing the light th come on. There is a code(s) that is stored in the ecu that should be read to determine where to start looking. Even then a code could be caused by something else but it does steer you in a direction.
