That could mean many many things. Take it somewhere and get the error codes read.

Thanks Jarett, Just took it to autozone and found out I had already corrected the problembefore taking it in. A hose came loose and was sucking in air (to lean a mixture). I reattached it and was told the light should go out by itself. If not, disconnect the battery and that should outten the light.
