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!

How do I reset 2002 Chevy venture check engine light? !


First of all the check engine code you can reset by disconecting negative terminal on your baterry. If you have scaning tool you can do that easy. If not go to the Advanve Auto Parts or Auto Zone they will reset it for you at no charge. Secondly you check engine light stays on since the PCM trows out trouble code. Check that also to se what type of code you have. It could cost you a lot of money if you don't address it on time. Good Luck.

I hace a kia rio 2001 i thought my check engine light bulb was burn but i found that is good,when i turn the keys to the ON position the check engine light does not come up at all i thougt the ECU was bad...


your post is 6 months old .if you bought the car used it was probley disconected to hide the check engine light being on . heres the simpelest thing to do for free .go to an advaced auto or auto zone etc etc 1 of those stores that checks your codes for free. ask them to check . dont tell them its not working .let them tell you theres a fault in the system , or its just the bulb behind the dash , you might have a code or two stored , if thats so its probley just the bulb burnt out or removed . if they dont tell you of any problems when they read it , heres what you can try next . disconect the negative from the battery then re-attachthen go to a differnt store and just say i need the check engine code read . they should tell you that your battery has been disconected within the last 50 starts.doing all this you are trying to find out if the system works . so if they can pull a code or tell you .you disconnected the battery then you diagnostic system is fine except for the bulb .burnt out ,diconected or removed.if right of the bat they cant comunicate then theres a fault in the system. keep in mind you and my kia"s are worth about $500 according to the blue book .i dont plan on spending over 100 for any parts going to drive it till it dies

Why is the reason why my check engine light comes on in my 2002 cadillac dts


You ECM has detected an issue with the engine and or transmission performance. You can take it to Auto Zone and have them scan the car for the DTC codes and they can advise you on how to address the issue. Auto Zone scan free of charge and if there are any issues, Auto Zone can give you the step by step instructions to getting the job done with common tools. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to answer any questions you may have with the DTC codes Auto Zone will give you.

Service Engine Soon light - 2003 Pontiac Grand Am


The loose gas cap is a quick and easy check to perform, so try that first. The service engine light will remain on until the next "cold" start.
I would also recommend visiting your local Auto Zone and ask them to scan your car for trouble codes. They offer this service free of charge, write the codes down and respond back, I can let you know what they are and mean if you decide to have a technician fix the issue.
Good luck, let me know.

Service engine soon comes on 2004 altima


Best thing to do is go to Auto Zone and have the computer in the car scanned for codes that is triggering your service engine light on.
They scan for free and i'm thinking that it just might be a O2 sensor that may have gone bad. What ever the problem is Auto Zone should have the part for you to replace the faulty part, and will have the instructions for you do the job your self if you'll like to save more money.
Good luck and hope this help's
