I had to replace my battery today and 25 miles later the "service engine soon" light came on. I just had my car serviced 3 weeks ago. Could this be from the battery replacement?

I wouldn't think so, but I have seen stranger things happen. But there could be actually something wrong with the engine controls, I would at least get it scanned to be sure.


nope, have a diagnostic done on it. maybe when they service the car they didnt reset it
