Name is***** goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,
As long as the check engine light is not flashing and the engine is still running normal your son can carry on driving .
What he needs to do is find a service station and get hooked up to a scan tool and check for malfunction codes.
From the malfunction code he will then know what has to be repaired or replaced .
May just be a little issue with one of the sensors and could be a quick fix.
Tell him to do a visual inspection under the bonnet and see if any of the wiring plugs have problems bad fittings come off etc .
Disconnect the battery wait a few minutes replace and start the engine
light maybe now out test drive if it comes back ON have it hooked up as said .
Need any follow up help then please get back to me with the reply button, and not the poor or bad service.

Okay thank you also .
As said as long as the light is not flashing should be okay to drive to a shop and get checked .
Seen people drive all year with the light on LOL.
This light is an emission warning so he may start having a bad MPG now ..
