SOURCE: jerkin, service engine light comes on, dieing

This could be caused by a faulty throttle position sensor, but if the check engine light is on, take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for any fault codes it has stored. Most parts stores will perform the scan for free. Getting the codes should narrow down the cause of the problem. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

How do you reset the service engine soon light


Put the key into the ignition and turn it to "Run." Don't start the engine. Press down slowly and fully on the gas pedal, then release it. Do this three times in five seconds. Watch for the "Service Engine Soon" light to start blinking. This indicates that the system is resetting itself. Turn the ignition to "Off" and wait one minute. Start the Century's engine. The Service Engine Soon light will flash for a moment, then turn off. If it doesn't do this, repeat the process.if all else fails...Disconnect your battery for one minute and then reconnect it again that should reset it, if the problem that you have in your car is still there then that light will come on again after whille then you gona need to run diagnostics on your car to find the problem if it will not come on again then that should take care of it.9-08-2006Let me tell you about my experience with my 1995 Buick Century.When my buick sits for a while while running, the radiator fan comes on, you know?Well, after the fan does its thing, SOMETIMES the "SERVICE ENGINE SOON" light comes on.THEN.....when this happens again, it may take a couple times of after the fan comes on, then....the light goes off !!!Its like it needs to go thru some sort of "CYCLE" , THEN THE LIGHT GOES OFF...Who knows though,you may have LEGITIMATE problems with your car.good luck.

Lincoln service light comes on goes off when speed increases


Usually a blinking service light indicates a severe problem, you should get the codes read to determine what the computer is trying to tell you what the problem is. Its a free service at most Autozone and Advance Auto parts stores. Once you get the codes, repost to obtain possible repair procedures.

Transmission won't shift out of 1st and service engine light comes on. goes in reverse and park. goes in drive , just will not shift.


Hi Cindy, As the engine check light is coming it is indicating a problem. Have a diagnostic scan carried out and let your technician determine the actual fault. It could be something to do with the state of engine tune or a defective speed sensor, but may also be a problem with the gearbox. Regards John

"Service" light just started coming on over the weekend. It comes on, stays on for about 5-10 minutes, then goes off. The other lights - check engine (I think), oil, etc. - come on when I turn on the car...


The light is set to light by milage and it is to let you know that the next service is due. This is reset by removing the rubber grommet that is to the left lower corner of the speedometer and depress the reset button.

2005 altima, check engine light came on....mechanic said it was the crank shaft sensor...replace both of them......light comes back on a week later, then goes out, then comes back on....seems like whenever...


obviously not a mechanic
with bad sensors you would have starting and noticeable engine running problems
have the fault codes read by an accredited service center and check the EVAP system

Cougar service engine light comes on for the first two miles


Hold down the "trip" and "trip reset" buttons at the same time when the service engine light comes on. The service engine light comes on between 5000 and 8000 miles as an oil change reminder, however you have to reset it manually.

Service engine light comes on


make sure your fuel cap it tight. does it blink or just stay on? what kind of other things happen when the light comes on? you could also go to advance auto or auto zone and they will check the trouble code for free and let you know what it might be.
