Alright, its 6 am in the morning im leaving work. Earlier on my way to work I noticed when I pressed the brake pedal the engine light came on, but when I accelerated it went away. So when I leav work I try to start my car and it wont start, it wont start. I tried it once more and it still didnt catch. Hurts. I noticed now that the oil light is on when I turn the key on. This is a huge problem I would assume and would like to know if any of you guys know any solution to this now? I would thank you for helping and help back.

Thanks, jamal

Engine light on, is this the check engine light if so get the computer scanned for code/s start here to find out what's going on with the engine management system If not-do below

Cranks over and will not start -check what's missing fuel or spark-Do below

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, cap and rotor, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it and keep testing
