    Common Reasons Engine Light would come On

    After having to park my 2005 SRX for a year, I finally got it back on the road but had to replace my passenger side catalytic converter. I couldn't pass inspection yet because I have to put some miles on it both local and highway in order for it to reset. Because of my busy schedule, I did not get to do the highway thing yet. On my way home from work yesterday, I noticed the engine light came on and the engine idle is a little rough. I'm about to do a full tune up in the next week. Did I wait too long to take that highway run and the light is on because of the new cat not being reset in the system? Would the need for an oil change cause the engine light to come on? I checked the oil and it seems ok, but I know I have to get one really soon. Before I go getting charged for diagnostics I would like to know the most common causes to make the engine light come on. The light is on steady BTW, not blinking.

    Thanks. I went to autozone and got a free diagnose. It's my oxygen sensor on my converter. I just opened her up on the highway. I'll see what happens when I bring it back to the shop to finish my inspection.
