Jerry Bransford Often, the Check Engine light illuminates due only to a minor momentary glitch somewhere. Like a loose gas cap or similar minor problem. The light can be turned off and the stored codes cleared by disconnecting the battery for a minute or two. The light will then be off. If the light turns back on, then it's time to have the code retrieved which can point you towards the possible problem.

Most Check Engine lights are not serious.

MR.CLIFFORD Stop by an Auto Zone or some place that has a code reader. They will give you a P number. Post up that P number and I can help you diagnose why your CEL. You can get rid of it the right way.
