Alright I have read the post reguarding the SES but I think my issue is a little different then what I have seen.
My red SES came on about three weeks ago, I used my code reader and it displayed NO CODES it also displayed MIL off but clearly it's on.
I just went out to play with it again, and still no codes and the mil off was indecated. IT also displayed Monitors 0 incomplete,
and then displayed several other items like Misfire, Fuel, Catlyst, Evap, O2Snsr and O2 Htr then I think it displayed 7 Ready i'm not going
to pretent to know what this means. :? Unfortunately the scan tool is not real clear about these items any help would be greatly appreciated.

Really, so if the ses sets no codes what is the purpose of it? Is it more critical then the check engine light, or less critical?

Thanks

What's SES (apart from State Emergency Services here in Australia)?

I don't think mine has that light.

Service Engine Soon. It is mileage driven, not error driven. I have disabled a couple of them in the BeCM programming.

Check the Secondary Air system *if you have it*, some of the hoses are prone to leaking and setting off the SES light. I'm waiting on a part for it till october. :(

The SES was only a early model item if I recall. The CEL was on all years and would be fault driven in stead of mileage driven. I could be wrong as I am the moron that can't figure out my A/C right now. :mrgreen:

To revisit an old thread....

My car just popped up the Service Engine Soon light while driving this morning. I believe it is in a red color.

Originally, I was going to go to advanced auto parts to get an OBD2 reader so I could pull the codes but you guys are saying that it may return nothing when run? Should I take the car to a shop to look it over or maybe order a test book online?

Depending on your location there are two lights, there is a check engine light and there is a service engine soon light. The service engine soon light is as stated above ( mileage driven) The check engine light is a code driven light.
The Test Book is a very expensive tool you would be better off buying a Fault Mate..

My 2000 RR has a Service Engine Soon light driven by codes (although I think the color was orange not red). I just reset an Oxygen Sensor code with an OBD reader from the local auto parts store.
