Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The engine light is coming on because the engine controller is seeing a failure in a monitored component or system and is setting a fault code. There are dozens of possible causes for the engine light coming on, especially depending on what the vehicle is.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see what fault codes are setting and testing can be done from there. Do you know what codes are setting?
