    whenever i start my car it displays "Check Engine" error. and the ignition simbol "which should be off after my car is started " is on permanently. has anyone on this forum faced this problem earlier. please help .

    I called up service advisor "RAHUL" from pundit and he gave me one number and asked me to bring my car after talking to that person. please suggest.

    No experience with this before, but I think it is better you take the car to TASS and let them take a look at the ECU for any error codes.
    Please do not disconnect battery before you take the car to TASS - if you disconnect battery for long time, the error codes may get erased.

    I have not experienced this in my GP,

    Im not sure if this would be of use, but just wanted to share my experience with a corolla that i owned a few years back in the US. THe reason that was cited to me was that the fuel cap to the fuel tank has given away and as a result, it was causing some changes to vaccum pressure, making the check engine light to glow. It got fixed after the fuel cap was replaced !

    Unless you reset the ECU using examiner, error codes never gets erased; even if you are to disconnect the battery for months. They are hard stored.
