Hello, my name is***** the light comes on it means vehicle detected a problem and stored a related diagnostic code in computer. If vehicle still runs fine that usually means problem is emission related such as leaking fuel cap, leaking filler neck, ect. You can have codes checked at your local parts store for free and reply back to me if you want to try and fix yourself otherwise I'd expect around a $300 repair at dealership depending on wha problem ends up being. Le me know if you have more questions, thanks.
