    Cool check engine light???

    Can someone please let me know what would generally cause the check engine light to go on (and stay on).

    I mean, is it likely to be something as easy to deal with as say topping off the fluids, or something more serious?

    I hate to broadcast my ignorance in public, but I can't seem to find my operator's manual and could use some help.

    Thank you very much.

    Plug into your OBD port under that steering wheel and get the car's ECU to tell you the error code.

    Moving to Troubleshooting forum.
