December 23rd, I had my water pump replaced. Then on Sunday, December 26th my service engine soon light started coming on and has stayed on so far. Is this something I should be worried about since I just had my water pump replaced 3 days ago?

squeaking noise coming from left front tire and steering. only make that noise when i turn left

My security system on my Grand Am GT always needs to be reset. What happens is the security light will come on once or twice over the course of a week or two. Then, when I get in the car and turn the key the car is absolutely dead. After reading the owners manual I found there is an actual way to reset this! (Seems like it is a common problem) You have to turn the key forward so that all the lights come on in the car. The Security light will start flashing. You leave it in this position for ten minutes and then the secruity light will stop flashing and stay lit up. When this happens. Turn the key back to off and then you can start the car. Sometimes this will happen without warning and the security light will not even blink prior to it not starting. It is very aggravating and it seems like it happens more when it is cold outside. Haven't been able to find a way to fix. Please help!
