Hi,

The service engine light can come on for a couple hundred reasons- most of the time it is caused by an emissions related issue, but occasionally it can be transmission, engine, and even air bag related.

The first step to nailing it down will be to get it scanned for codes. Do you think you could run it by a parts store and have the codes scanned? Most parts stores offer this for free.
