Re: Help! What the F does this light mean??

check engine...it means your vehicle's computer has determined that a component or system in your emission control system is not working properly. Do the key dance and pull the code. turn the ignition on and off three times and on the thrid time...it will display the codes.

Haha. Thanks guys. I literally had dinner and came out to my car. Now the light is off. I'm like a hypochondriac with this car. By the way... Put on brand new Goodyear Duratrac 265/70/17s on there yesterday before the drive. So far... They have been nothing short of amazing in the snow and ice. Fwy was quiet at around 80mph. So far... So good.

The MIL will reset after 3 "good trips" when the DTC is not active. If it is not flashing, you can drive it. If it is flashing, you should determine the cause soonest.
