There are times when the exhaust temperature light may come on right after washing the vehicle, since water can get into the wires. Another reason for this could be that the thermocoupler ECU's are not working properly.

Check engine light is on1998 Isuzu rodeo ls32 v6?

the check engine light means you have something wrong with your emissions. theres something wrong with how your car lets out exhaust. There are sensers on your exhaust pipe that sense how much exhaust is being let out and how much unburned fuel is coming out. There is a computer in your car that senses that and try's to fix it. one of your sensers might be bad or you might have a clogged catalatic converter.
