Hello,

Billy :

I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

Billy :

The emission light being on, would suggest a fault in the emission control system (or depollution system).

Billy :

That could be anything from oxygen sensor to catalytic converter, or it can even be a wrongfully triggered fault.

Billy :

To find out, you need to have the car scanned, retrieve the codes, and erase them.

Billy :

If the light does not come back, then it would be a sporadic error, and the car is fine.

Billy :

If the light comes back, then the error codes retrieved, would point out which system or component needs replacing.
