Q: SERVICE ENGINE SOON on 2001 Saturn SL2

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
We just bought this car two days ago. The car was fine for the first 100 miles. Now the Service Engine Soon light is on. Is this a reminder for service or would this be a warning something with the engine is actually wrong? It runs fine, fluid levels are o.k.and has 71k miles. This is our first Saturn vehicle. If it checks out o.k. is there a way to reset the light?

It's not a reminder but it's telling you it sees something in the computor system it doesn't like, most likely an emissions problem. The car may run fine but you need a tech to check it with a scan tool to see what code/codes it has in in to determine diagnosis.
