If you mean the little engine symbol light on the dash, there are many things that will cause it to light up, Does your car run OK? If not please describe what

Yes the car is running OK, it happens once before for a few minutes and it turn off by itself, but this time it didn't

Some cars,yours I don't know, the check engine light will come on from mileage alone. The dealers/factory want you in for service Sorry I can't be more help than suggesting getting your fault codes read at a parts store. I say that too often, but when I don't know what may be going on especially when the car runs OK. Check your gas cap. That is one of the common things.
