    Default Engine Malfunction light comes on Occasionally

    I've recently bought a Swift 2007 Japanese Automatic Transmission, and have noticed that Engine malfunction light comes on occasionally after having the tuning done,
    Even though the extra noise of engine has gone but the ignition self is taking an effort to start

    Plz help, Thanks

    it should start on half self
    show the car to a better different mechanic

    if the car was giving a malfunction code, light would not turn off at all

    From Kamran market. They use some scanner tool to get the code from your car and then make the key. Not sure about price but I asked once the key-maker about it in Kamran market. He said its possible.

    The MOST common reason for the check engine light to turn on is malfunctioning O2 sensor. Either get it replaced (if you want to spend money on it ) or just get the battery terminal wire detached for a minute and then attach again. CPU will restart and check engine light will vanish.
