check engine light on.....

My check engine light came on while driving home from picking up coach. Some other folks have had the same problem. Ford has said to others that it is jaycos problem to fix due to modification. Anyone else had this problem?

I have a air bag light on since p/u Nov 3, 2015. Took it to Ford. after $128.00 they traced to under seat. Said it is Jayco problem cause Jayco installed seats?!? Waiting to Take to a Jayco dealer Jan 4. Call Jayco customer service and have them document your issue. Check back for results.

First plug in an OBDII/CAN scanner and let the computer tell you what it thinks is wrong.


Then demand the warrantee repair!

The module under the seat is the srs module and it's furnished through Ford Motor Company. Whatever ford dealer told you this was Jayco's problem is wrong. Ford covers Ford parts. Period.

Ford traced all the way to seats. They said seats had to come out to investigate further. They had to reschedule for two weeks later. I was livid I had to wait so long so I called Jayco Customer Service and explained situation. They got back to me and said it was a Jayco issue. Since they installed the seats. The Jayco dealer was 6 weeks backed up. Ugg hope this is not normal. So I will know more Jan 4th.

Yeah, if Jayco boogers up something then yeah...they fix it. But if that module just went bad, it's on FoMoCo.

Mike gives good advice.

The MIL Maintenance Indicator Light aka CEL Check Engine Light being on often is related to an emissions problem. As long as the vehicle is operating correctly and there are no drive-ability issues then it is nothing to get too worked up about.

Most auto parts supply stores will scan your vehicle for free. If the problem is related to OBDII emissions monitoring then the scan should give you a general idea of what the problem is.

There is little downside to getting a scan from an auto store. One thing I will suggest. NEVER LET THEM RESET OR CLEAR THE CODES.

One reason is that a generic OBDII scan tool may not read all the codes available because some are manufacturer proprietary codes. It may not see/read them, but it can clear them.

Another reason is that the dealership often needs to see a complete DTC Diagnostic Trouble Code history to support a warranty repair. If the codes are cleared you may not get a warranty repair until the condition returns and sets new codes.

There is a simple common thing to check. Make certain that your fuel cap is properly seated. Air leaks in the fuel tank system can cause monitors to become unhappy and trigger the MIL aka CEL dash indicator.

Added:
The MIL aka CEL is separate from the SRS Safety Restraint System monitoring. To my knowledge there is no vehicle in which an air bag or seat belt monitor will trigger the MIL aka CEL dash indicator. The systems are monitored independently.

FWIW. vic

check engine light on.....

Check a few things under the hood before driving it again. Oil, coolant, etc... Check engine light could be one of numerous alerts.

+2 on the gas cap
