My girlfriends 04 dodge neon had a hole in the upper rad hose. So I replaced it and it worked fine for the rest of the day. The next day when she was pulling into work her check engine light came on. Someone told her it could be a dummy light. Any ideas y the check engine light could of came on?

Have the trouble codes, checked. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. To check codes yourself, at the least, you need an obd2 code reader.

The engine isn't trying to overheat?

Have the trouble codes checked, if there is a code it will give us something to go on. If heater code, check 02 heater circuit.
