      The check engine light is located on the dash and stays on if the computerized engine control system detects an engine performance or emissions problem.

      First step - have the stored fault codes or check engine light scanned - for free - at any local auto parts store; Advance Auto, Auto Zone, NAPA. Then, post a reply as 'add answer' with the specific code for more assistance. There may be a fault code stored in the OBD memory which may not be displayed as a check engine light.

      Did you check the charging system? Check for too much amp draw, everything off. I don't have your spec in front of me, usually around 50 ma, that is .o50 not even a tenth of an amp. If amp draw is excessive, pull/replace fuses one at a time, when you pull the fuse on the faulty circuit, the excess drain goes away.

      Check for lites left on, under the hood, interior, everywhere, best time to check that is in the dark.

      Engine Coolant Temperature Sensor

      The ECT Sensor is located on top of the intake manifold, just below the throttle body.

      Note: Electric cooling fans are controlled by the Power Control Module based on information provided by the engine coolant temperature sensor.

    CAR DOESNT GET PROPER FUEL PRESSURE. COULD THIS BE THE PRESSURE REGULATOR OR WOULD IT HAVE TO BE THE FUEL PUMP?
    5LBS PRESSURE WITH KEY TURNED AND 22 LBS WITH ENGINE RUNNING. CAR CALLS FOR 30-45 LBS

      Try to pinch the fuel return line from the fuel regulator and if the fuel system pressure doesn't raised up to the specifications, then the problem is a bad fuel pump.

      Relays carry high-amperage current controlled by a low-current switch
      When a faulty relay is not replaced, the circuit will either be non-functional or remain engaged, replace the fuel pump relay.

    Why won't the engine start every time when there is plenty battery power.
    There is plenty of battery power, but it will fail to crank about 1 time out of 20. After a few minutes after it fails to start, it will start.

      It could be a starter motor. Need to perform voltage checks when it fails. The failure rate should happen more often as time goes on.

    Why do I have trouble starting engine
    There are 85000 miles on car, battery good. Starting problem doesn't happen all the time. Check engine light has been on for long time. Mechanic said that comes on when the car is older and has to do with electronics of car..
