Question Asked: Frequent on/off dashboard "Service Engine Soon" light
August 15, 2009, 10:45 PM
My engine light comes on & goes off intermittenly. It usually stays on 2 to 7 days, then goes off. This scenario started approx 3 years after purchase & local dealer advised me not to worry, possible lite malfunction?! But recently when this occurred, it failed state inspection w/faulty O2 sensor code. Is this a common problem w/lite & sensor??

Great power & smooth ride but initially had a few problems w/delco battery(replaced 3 in 7 yrs); replaced window/steering stability switches in first 4 yrs, but covered under warranty; reset AC compressor restart codes due to freon/ac oil leaks; recently vent blower fan went out..of course car is 13 yrs/I'm original owner! Still Luv it though, can't beat its handling & mountain of features/gadgets/comfort/Bose stereo system!!
