Sounds like the check engine light. Usually just an emissions warning such as loose gas cap. If the vehicle is behaving normally don't worry too much about it.

2004 mitsubishi endeavor - I changed the battery 2 days ago. I changed it as the car seemed as though the battery was going out, somewhat hard to turn over only at times. 2 hours after changing it, the car would stall, I would turn key off and then restart (according to the manual, this is normal as electronics reseting). Now, today (1 day after), it ran all day just fine however this evening, just would not start. I have lights, the car just will not turn over. When I turn the key, I do he

I have an 03 saturn vue, 2wd with auto trans. When driving, usually at less than 2 miles the engine shuts down at about 500 rpm like when stopping for a red light. Have to disconnect battery to reset computer, have found that turning key on to let fuel pump start before restarting seems to work. According to Saturn handbook it is equipped with a "passlock" system which shuts off the fuel pump if "it doesn't recognize the key being used?! Yesterday the car stopped while driving, but restarted

What could cause your truck to stall out, instrument panel lights to all come on and then within a few seconds restart without turning off the ignition. The vehicle will always restart once the key is turned off and then back on. Sometimes my vehicle will complete stop and I have to put into park and turn off the key. But like I stated before it will restart. I noticed that the CAM sensor has oil or something on it. Could this be the problem?

Starting problems Turn the ignition key, here a loud click, but engine does not turn over. Try this several times. Then the engine will turn to turn over (maybe 2 seconds). Then on the next try it turns over and starts. Turn car off. Try to restart. same problem. I do notice that when the car has been running for 15 minutes or longer no problem on restart. But let it set for 30 minutes, same problem.
