Re: Reset check engine light
You can do several Things to reset your check engine light. One is to simply pull the positive side of your battery cable off of the battery. Im going to say to just leave it off for about two minutes then place it back on tighten it down and your done. The other way is to bye a check engine light decoder. Are find one from a friend any way it has a reset option on it that will reset it. Ok your welcome good luck and may the force be with you.

Re: Reset check engine light
The check engine light can't be reset per say, it will go out after a time if the problem that made it come on is repaired or clears itself, you can turn it off either with a scanner or in some cases by disconnecting the battery, i don't recommend the battery option as you will set the radio to theft mode and loose all stored data in the computer system (PCM) Note that if the problem is not repaired the light will come back on in a few days.

I am fixing to change my EGR valve and the piece of paper that came with the part say this:
Before installing this part, check the EGR valve passage in the intake manifold and clear any carbon blockage. Failure to do so will result in repeat malfuntion of the EGR valve system. Refer to a technical service manual or contact a service dealer for proper cleaning procedures.
Hi, the best thing at at hispoint is to get a diagnostic review by using a diagnostic computer at the local dealership or garage. Once your car has been diagnosed, you will be able to reset the cpu and the light will go off. its probably just an O2 sensor or egr valve needed.
1.bend a paperclip into a u shape. 2.disconnect the yellow plug in your fuse box under the steering wheel and insert the paperclip into the plug that is now hanging there to complete the circuit.3.turn the ignition on and the srs light will stay on for 6 seconds, then turn off.disconnect the paperclip within 4 seconds after that and the light will come back on.4. reconnect the paperclip within 4 seconds and the srs light will turn off again.5.within another 4 seconds of it going off, disconnect the paperclip and the light will blink letting you know that you have completed all the steps right. you can also use some speaker wire
