the engine light is telling you that something is not in order u need to go to a workshop that has a diagnostic machine n they need to plug it into ur computer box and it will then give you ur fault ... replace that item and ask them to clear the codes .... if your engine light is still on then perhaps its something mechanical and not electrical

the enige light can be taken away when you disconect the battery. leave it for 10mins and put it back on. drive for about 3km/s then the light will go away. first ahnd experince

Most of the fuel problem on these vehicles comes from the fuel regulator located and connected to the injectors. I replaced mine and getting 14.3 km per litre
