Pull the codes from the computer, match the code to the troubleshooting procedure, follow the procedure to find the source. Repair the source, light will go out if that was the only problem. There are "monitors" or self test the computer runs the car through, if a problem occurs, it may not run all of the self tests until that problem is taken care. Therefore, another problem may exist. It is emission related.

When this happened to me on my seven year old 2.2 DCi laguna I had to hae taken in to the Renault dealers. It turned out to be the a problem with both the cam sensor and the fuel injection sensor.

Water temp light is coming on even when needle is not past it just replaced thermostat engine block and radiator on the edge at the moment?

On our '92 the light comes on when the water level in the resovor is low. If you have the correct level of coolent possibly your sensor could be bad. Try filling the plastic resevior if it is low. There is a sensor on top of it that makes the light come on even though the temp is not hi.

How do you change a oxygen sensor in a 1991 Oldsmobile cutlass supreme?

The O2 sensor is located on the rear exhaust- driver's side. Easiest to get to if you rotate the engine forward and away from the firewall. I have used regular wrenches even though they sell O2 sensor wrenches.

How to replace the knock sensor on my Zafira?

Unscrew the bolt through the centre of the sensor & unplug the wiring connector. Re-fitting is the reverse of removal. More often than not the knock sensor is not faulty though, the engine is knocking due to low oil level.

1999 jeep sahara change both oxygen sensors engine light still coming on with rear flank on the computer?

I dont know what codes you were getting. double check the connections. And get the code cleared. retry it. If it still comes on reread the code to see what it says. You didnt get anything on tips of the o2 sensor did you? Another thing the rear one refers to the one after the Cat converter. Is that the one that was replaced? People sometimes forget this. If there is still a probplem the circuit has a prblem. The code would be saying this though. Hope this helps.

Why does your 1996 corsica 3.1 idle super high replaced throttle pos sensor still does it has great vacuum?

It wouldn't make much of a vacuum leak to cause the engine to idle at high RPM. First check for vacuum leaks even though you may still have good manifold vacuum.
