2008 Dodge Charger Q&A

2008 Dodge Charger Question: Check Engine Light

My Check Engine light is on. I turned the ignition switch to start, but didn't crank the engine, the light stayed steady, which, by my manual, means that the car would be good for inspection. I had my oil changed on 6 Jan 11, so think if they hadn't reset it, the light would have come on before then, but am not sure. Is there anything I can do or do I need to bring it in to be serviced? -

Any shop can use a scan tool and tell you why the check engine light is on, And you can locate a shop near you here www.repairpal.com/directory Your vehicle is fairly new and the part that failed might still be under the Dodge emissions warranty -

Thanks, When I had my Chevy, the light came on when they forgot to reset it during servicing; I was able to reset it myself. I wasn't sure if Dodge had the same thing and I had overlooked it. -
