That is normal but, when you start the engine the light should go out.

Not usually....No. Take it in to AutoZone and have them check the codes for you.

The check engine/service engine light should come on as soon as the ignition is turned to the on position without starting the engine. If it does not, then the bulb is either blown or has been removed.

Put key in ignition then push down on the mileage reset and hold it down then whilst holding it down turn ignition round till only ignition lights come on. The spanner or service light will either start flashing or do a count down when it stops that's it reset for its next service in miles then turn ignition off and release the mileage trip. Start engine and light should be off as its reset. I have just saved you money from going to a dealership.

Yes, when you turn on the ignition the Check Engine light will come on for a few seconds to show you the light is working. It will go out if no problem is detected.

water could cause a service engine light to come on, for example, ignition systems are sensitive to moisture and could cause a misfire and turn the light on. You need to find out what code the computer has set. Some auto parts stores have scan tools to loan.

Depending on the type of service light, the Holden Cruze offers and easy way to reset the light. Turn the ignition to on, but do not start the car. Depress the accelerator three times within five seconds, and then turn the ignition off.

Either you would have to take it to a dealer to use a tech2 to shut it off, or have 10 ignition cycles without the problem causing the light to come on and it will shut off on its own.

Set your light switch to "auto" on the dash and your lights will come on automatically with the ignition. Turn your light switch on your dashboard to "auto" or "automatic" and the lights will come on and off with your ignition switch.

Light should come on for 4 secs and then go off. If it stays on or doesn't come on at all then you have a problem.

There can be several causes for the service emissions systems light to come on in a Ford Escape. The light can indicate an 02 sensor is out or it can indicate an exhaust leak.

To reset your service light here are the steps. 1. Get in your car and shut the door. 2. Put your key in the ignition 3. Turn your ignition key to position 1 4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button. 5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car. This should reset your service light and a service light on your Volvo C/S/V70 cars from 1999 onwards.
