Check your fuse to your cigarette lighter then go back to autozone and see if they can get codes to pull. I have seen this before. Hope this helps.

Check engine light on


erase code again , then disconnect battery for a few minutes, reconnect, see if code comes back. hopefully this resets computer. you don\'t have a reset button on steering wheel do you ? replace your fuel filter, if you haven\'t lately. maybe that will help.

How do i disconect check engine light


Take it to a shop and have it scanned to find out what the problem is. Your cars computer gets input from sensors, if something is wrong or out of spec the light comes on. You should fix the problem right not just disconnect the light. I wouldn't go back to auto zone they sound like idiots!

My first thought would be: If you repaired an emissions hose, take the car back to Auto Zone (or another parts supplier) and let them tell you what code comes up now. You eliminated one problem, now you have to find another.

The check engine light is on chevy cavalier 2001


The check engine light would record an error code in the computer, you need to get that information in order to know what the next step is.
