What could be common reasons behind the check engine light being on in my SAAB?

The check engine light just came on in my car and I have no idea why.

If there is no unusual noises made by you car, one of the reasons why a "check engire" may appear without any evident reason may be as simple as your gaz cap is not well shut. If that's the case, open you gaz cap and shut it again, turn it until you ear a click.

Check engine lights are always emissions related. This can range from a gas cap being loose to needing a new catalytic convertor. Most auto parts stores will pull the codes to give you a better idea of what the actual problem is.
