CHECK ENGINE LIGHT

2001 Mercury Sable

Engine Mechanical problem
2001 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 80000 miles

I JUST BOUGHT A USED MERCURY SABLE. PASSED INSPECTION BUT NTO EMISSIONS. CHECK ENGINE LIGHT KEEPS COMING ON. THE SHOP WHERE I HAD IT TESTED STATED I NEEDED TO DRIVE IT ABOUT 100 MILES AND COME BACK FOR RETEST. I DID THAT AND STILL LIGHT COMES ON. TOOK IT BACK AND THEY CHANGED THE WIRING AND THE BULB. STILL THE LIGHT COMES ON. NOT SURE WHAT THE PROBLEM IS. CAN YOU PLEASE DIRECT ME?

Check engine light is on

need to have it scanned for codes
let me know what you have for codes and will pin point to you what is going on
if the battery was disconnected or the codes were cleared the car will also fail emission test and need to be driven for few miles and then you can try to get you test and should pass unless u have a problem and the check engine light will come back on (as in your case )
need to get the codes
