If it's the check engine light, then no one will know what it means till you have the engine computer scanned with a code reader to get the trouble codes.

If the light comes on when engine is running, it means the computer has detected a fault in it's engine management. It will turn on the light and set a trouble code for the fault in its memory. A technician will use the trouble code to diagnose and fix the problem. Depending on the problem, sometimes it's simple, sometimes more complex.
If your car is a '96 or newer model, Autozone (and maybe other parts stores) will do an engine computer scan for free. Cars built before '96 use a different diagnostics program, but code readers for any year car are available and relatively inexpensive at any parts store or at outlets like Walmart. Good luck.
