My car has 115000 miles.

Hi there. The Check Engine Light is an indicator that you have a problem in one or more systems of your car. You would need to have the computer scanned to see what codes are stored and have them diagnosed and repaired as needed, then the codes can be cleared to turn off the light. The Check Engine Light codes can entail a simple or a complex repair, but they will need to be diagnosed first.
