Light looks like a motor - 2001 Mazda Tribute
\012When the service engine soon\012light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine\012management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that\012Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure\012somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference\012in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the\012engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules\012memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the\012powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2\012electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the\012code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code\012and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the\012diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint"\012testing.
