I'm having issues understanding your question. Is it on? Do you have a code number? These things would help.

Depends on why the check engine light is on.

Here, do this

And tell us what codes come up.

You will have to pay the diag fee at the dealership($100-$150) and if the issue is covered under the powertain warranty then you will get paid back minus your dectucable which is $100.

There is no deductible on the lifetime powertrain.

Depends on if you bought the warranty or it came with the vehicle.

Either way he still has to pay the diag fee 1st.

I had the light checked out at Autozone for free and the code is P0456 (Evap leak). I think I have a defective fuel cap. When I check the fuel cap, I could unscrew it with less than a quarter turn. Like an idiot I forgot to have them clear the code for me.

lock it in place, it might have just been loose. If thats the case, the light will turn off within 50miles.

That depends too, as some dealers will not require you to pay the diagnosis fee if it is certainly a warranted item/issue. In the case of this issue however, that is NOT covered under Lifetime Powertrain, and yeah you'd likely have to pay a diagnosis fee unless you have a really cool dealership such as mine that isn't out to strangle you out of every dollar.

Diagnostic test for $100 is a crock of shit!
