Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. The service engine soon light indicates you may have an sensor issue. If you are low on funds at the moment, most auto parts stores offer free vehicle computer diagnostic scans (so they can sell you parts). The scan is always the first step in obtaining the path to take to rectify the issue. It may be something as small as a loose gas cap. The results of the scan will tell you what system is affected, or if the problem is minor.
