You need to scan the car for the fault code or codes since the light is on, they are code stored in the cars memory. A local auto part store can sometimes do it for free. Post the codes back here, or have a mechanic look at it.

this was helpful but there are 2 lights on, air bag and check engine light? I took it to a local auto parts store and they said air bag problems would not show up any codes. thanx for your reply


You are correct on the air bag codes, you need a special code reader for those, most garages and dealerships have them.

Was the local auto store succesfull in pulling a code for the CEL?
