Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 2 months ago.

The engine light on means there is a problem, this will set a code that will be stored in the engine computer. You need a scanner to get the code read so we can see what is going on.

You can get a free scan at any auto parts store.
