Your check engine light comes on when the computer system sees a fault and when this happens the system will detect it and set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what is failing the system needs to be scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. Has this been done and if so can you tell me what fault code and or codes where you getting?
