Light just came on. Taken to mechanic and I wanted to make sure the starter can cause the engine light to come on
Will my engine light come on if starter is bad on 1997 Pontiac Bonneville
No, a starter cannot cause a check engine light. And a starter doesn't do much when the car is runnig, which is when you would look for your check engine to be active.
When cel comes on it will set code(s), can see if any code is related to existing code(s). I have not heard of this but heck, I am wrong sometimes and can learn new tricks.
