You cannot unless you have a computer scanner. Sometimes your local Autozone or parts house will do a "Free" computer scan. Any other questions just ask.

Honda element check engine light on multiple times. dealer turns off, but keeps coming back

The dealer should not simply reset the check engine light without informing you as to the reason it is coming on. The hadheld diagnostic tool should be plugged in to your cars unit and the code deciphered - it could be a simple matter such as the gas pressure valve system in the fuel tank or something more sinister or expensive if you leave it - I am astonished that they simply reset it - go to another dealer and ask them or your local garage as the diagnostic tool is not dealer specific - anyone can buy them.

Check engine light douring driving?how can i reset the memory of the check engine?


Your dealer or mechanic can reset the check engine light but without fixing the problem, it will come right back. Usually the car runs in a lower power system when the light is on. You may or may not notice that. I would suggest you bring it to a mechanic or dealer for maintenance.

Good luck!!

Check engine light is on believe it is due to not securing the gas cap properly. Is there a way to clear it without going to the dealer?

I would try an auto-part store. Normally, they would hook up a engine light code reader to give you the trouble code for free. With the code reader, you can clear the troubles and the engine light should turn off.

1999 Porsche Boxster Check Engine Light

Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. I wouldn't think that the two issues are related. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Check Engine light came on Tuesday evening. Wed morning, car didn't want to start. After numerous times, the car finally started ? Check Engine light is still on, Dealer ship said Fuel pump without even...

since the check engine light can come on for well over 100 different faults I would say the dealer is guessing, ask if he replaces the pump on this guess will he fix the real cause if the car still has a problem. I would suggest u go to Kragen or Autozone parts and have them run a free trouble code test for the cause of the check engine light. With that code in hand post it back here for us to look at and try to diagnose.
