Since the SEL is on, you can scan the car for the code or codes that are in memory to pinpoint the sensor or problem that is causing the light to trip. Could be up to a number of things. Any local auto part store can scan them for you for free or have your mechanic do it.

Thank you that was really helpfull, I was able to borrow from Advance Auto the test and found the problem.
