    - CHECK ENGINE light came on - car drives fine.

    My Check Engine light came on and is staying on. (2013 Prestige, 21k miles)
    The transmission seems to shift fine and it's not in limp mode.
    I also checked the gas cap and that was tight.

    Any ideas what I can check on my own before having to leave it at the dealer for a week?
    Service on these cars take forever and a day.

    About the only thing you can check is the gas cap, oil level & coolant level. If you have a scan tool you can check for codes. I had the same issue under my post titled amber check engine.
    You shouldn't have to stop just because the pavement does! 2012 Range Rover Evoque Pure Plus Coupe, 2009 Land Rover LR2 HSE traded, 2008 Land Rover LR2 SE traded.

    Most major auto parts stores, Advance, AutoZone etc., will plug in a scan tool to get the codes free of charge. You will probably still end up at the
    dealer, but this may give you a heads up as to the problem.

    My CEL came on not long ago. No driving issues. Turned out to be a bad catalytic converter.

    My check engine light came on. Took car to dealer, gave it back to me, off. About a week later, came back on. Returned to dealer, who cleared and mentioned that previous "errors" had not all been cleared. Could be BS, but have not been back since.

    You mean Lucas Electrics? Prince of darkness? You may find the light comes back on.
