it usuallt comes on when the engine management system has pick up a fault, to investigate why it has come on you need to get it put on some suitable diagnostic equipment most loca garages have this now.
my engin management light comes on why
Warning lights come on when there is a problem. An Engine management light comes on when there is a problem within the engine, that may cause problems later.
Camshaft Sensor fault... goes in to limp mode won't rev more than 4,5000 rpm Change sensor but make sur it is a genuine Seimans sensor
Assuming the check engine light? Comes on when the computer (ECM) does it's self test and finds a component out of the specified range. Also detects engine misfires, trany problems on some vehicles as well as a variety of other problems.
Yes it has.
The Opel Vectra is a car that was produced from 1988 to 2009. "Vectra" may be meaningless, having been chosen purely to sound good, as many car names are. However, some have theorized that "Vectra" comes from a form of "vehere", the Latin word for "travel" or "transport".
Disconnect the battery for 5 minutes. This should reset it. If it comes back on, you have a problem with the engine management system.
This normally means that the engine management card has identified a reportable issue with the vehicles performance. It will need to be checked by a qualified person
Its an engine management light and will need to be plugged into a computer at a engine diagnostic garage as it could be a number of things and only the codes will tell you which part is faulty.
If your engine management light comes on, there may be a problem with your vehicle. The only way for the light to be removed is by resetting the light. The light needs to be reset by someone with a resetting tool. This is generally your local mechanic.
Mode 6 is away to find misfires before a check engine light comes on. Useful mostly for Ford vehicles because not all manufacturers fully support this yet.
My 2003 !.9 diesel Zafira does exactly the same
There are many reasons why the management light will come on, you will have to have the car scanned at a repair shop, the fault code that made the light come on will be stored in the engine control module, and this can be decoded by and any good shop with the correct equipment
The vehicle's computer has sensed a malfunction that may not directly affect the driveability of the car (yet), Have the computer scanned for trouble codes to determine where/what the fault is.
This is the catalyst heat sensor light. It comes on when the engine is started and it should then go out. If it doesn't, assume the catalyst has failed. If the light comes on while driving it means your catalyst has failed. The catalyst usually fails if the car misfires and sends some unburnt fuel down the exhaust.
There is somthing wrong ad u need to go to auto zone andhave them chek it for u it is fre
Its just a reminder that the car is due a service. The light comes on after every 10, 15k.
why do check engine light comes on
the light comes on when the alternator is bad or your regulator has gone bad. some regulators are built into the computer.
When Exhaust brake is on squeak noise comes from the engine?"
Could mean a lot of things. Take your car to AutoZone and they will scan the computer in it for free and tell you whats wrong.
Seems when I start 2002 ford Taurus sometimes it seems like getting to much gas at the start..sounds like it floods and check engine light comes on with misfire at first 1000 revolution. What could be wrong?
Just turn it anti clockwise and the whole thing comes out. Its really easy there isn't any silly little clips or wires it just comes out.
