Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you today. When was your last time having the vehicle serviced? This issue could be caused by many different things like the O2 sensor, cam sensor, spark plugs, etc. This light means that there is a trouble code stored in the system. The first action that needs to be taken is to have the vehicle scanned for trouble codes. The code that is retrieved will direct you towards the problematic area, and then repair can begin. If you are near your local auto parts store, then they usually offer free vehicle scanning. I know that Autozone and Advance does. Once you retrieve the code, if you need further information on the issue, you can provide it to me here, and I will be able to give you a complete description and understanding of the issue.
