2011 chevy equinox check engine light came on while driving.

Customer Question

2011 chevy equinox check engine light came on while driving. car seems to ride fine, but after returning home i shut the car off & restarted it to see if the light would go away. light still on, rough idle & the service stabilitrack light came on.
JA: Does the light stay on, or does it blink?
Customer: I'm pretty sure it was blinking. I pressed the traction control button and the light went away, but the check engine light is still on.
JA: Are you fixing your Equinox yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: No, I am not. Just looking to find out what it could be before I decide where to take it, if i even need to.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I've done a little research and found that it could be it needs an oil change or possibly an O2 sensor. Would like to know what I can check before I schedule an appointment with any one. If it is something simple, I can repair it myself.

hi im david, there is nothing i can tell you until you have the computer scanned for fault codes. take to advance auto or autozone and they will scan it for free. erite down the codes and then let me know what they are. hundreds of things can turn the check engine light on.
