Welcome! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to assist you with this problem.
im sorry your having this problem
how does it run for you ?
other than the light coming on its running fine ?
It runs fine, starts easily
Barry the engine icon when lit up can be turned on by the computer for many reasons
the most common is a loose or bad gas cap not sealing the fuel tank and when the computer runs its tests and the gas cap is an issue it will turn on the icon ( check engine light )
if this is running great its more than likely something simple like that
the best way to find out why is to swing by a Pep Boys or Auto Zone and they will read the code numbers for free for you and then you will know exactly why the computer turned the light on
or you can disconnect both battery cables for 5 minutes make sure the gas cap is tight then reconnect the battery and drive it
if the light comes back on a shop will have to diagnose the code that it is setting
