    I'm sorry......are u saying that u added a sub woofer & after a few hours the CEL (Check Engine Light) came on?

    If this is the case, did u unplug ANY electrical connectors? Sometime if u unplug certain connectors, it will cause the CEL to come on because the data link between the cars computers was lost. This can be cleared by using a OBDII scanner.

    If u have a OBDII scanner, use it to scan for the error codes. Then u can search for the code definition & it will tell u what can be the cause or u take it to the dealer & have then run a check. A CEL could be a 100 different causes & only the code will point u in the right direction. It could have nothing to do with the woofer install.

    i'd take it back to the shop that put in the sub and tell them what happened. they should at least scan it to determine if it is related to the work they did.
