My engine light came on yesterday on my 2k/stype. It has 37,882 miles, and as far as I can tell its running fine. Can someone tell me if this has happened to them and if so what you did to get it fix. I would hate to have to drive 2.5 hours to my closest jag dealer for something that I may be able to do myself.
Any help is greatly appreciated thanks.

Those lights come on if there is a problem. Check the gas cap to be sure it is on all the way, if not the car needs to be scanned

It can be one of two things. Either your gas cap. Because there is a recall on a redesigned gas cap around your year model. Most of the time if the car is running well but the light comes on it is an EVAP code usually a very small leak.
