Start the vehicle in the dark, at night is easiest, look for arcing (sparking) components- replace those that are arcing.

If nothing is seen- give it a tune up.

SOURCE: audi a6 quattro 1.8t It says press clutch pedal to start engine

The shift needs to be in park or neutral to start. to shift from neutral with the engine running, you have to touch the brakes. Can't explain the label on the dash, unless it has been replaced.

SOURCE: my service engine light light came on and my car

there is a fualt in the electronic engine control system, the on board computer (called a "PCM") has put the car in limp home mode by limiting the electronic throttle control, u need to have the system tested for the fault code that was stored in the computers memory when the the check engine light came on to determine the problem and the course of action to fix it, Kragen and Autozone and other stores do this fault code test for free, but i caution u on accepting advice from the parts techs, it is usualy wrong and it costs you hard earned money to find that out when the problem isn't fixed by there guess, have a factory trained tech look at trhe problem..

2 possible solutions. Try holding in the odometer reset while restarting the engine or, Hold foot down on the accelerator pedal to the floor. Keep it held. Turn on the ignition (so dash lights come on) and with accelerator still pressed, press the brake pedal hard 3 times.One of these 2 options should reset it.

How do I reset the oil change light?


year, make, model. engine size?


Other wise try this first. Turn the key on but do not start. Press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times. the light should start to blink. turn the key off then start the vehicle. The light should go out.

Other times there is a reset button in the dash fuse panel, and other times there are a series of buttons than need to be pressed on the steering wheel or dash.

You can also check your owners manual for the procedure. If you do not have one you can get an online version at Chevrolet.com

Let me know what vehicle you have and I will get you the specific info.

How to turn off change oil light on the 2004 Chevy Colorado Pick-up truck ?


1. Turn the ignition to ON do not start.Engine OFF dash board lights ON.
2. Press and release the reset button in the driver information center (DIC) until the OIL LIFE message is displayed.
3. Once the alternating OIL LIFE and RESET messages appear on the DIC display, press and hold the reset stem until several beeps sound. This confirms the OIL LIFE system has been reset.
4. Turn the key to lock. If the CHANGE OIL message comes back on when you start the engine, the ENGINE OIL LIFE system has not reset. Repeat the procedure
Alternate Method
1. Turn the ignition key to ON with the engine off.
2. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal 3 times within 5 seconds. Several beeps sound. This confirms the oil life system has been reset.
3. Turn the ignition key OFF.
4. If the CHANGE/OIL message comes back on when you start the engine, the engine oil life system has not reset. Repeat the procedure
I use the second method, it is more universal and it works for Chevy Venture too.
