The best way is to get the code or codes and repair the problem.The only other way is to have a code scanner and clear the code or codes that are in the ECM(engine control module).The problem with just clearing the code is that the light will come back on.Auto Zone or O`riellys will tell you what the code or codes are but they will not clear it for you.They will not charge for this.Also depending on the code or if the light is flashing you could be doing more harm to the vehicle or it could be using more gas.Let me know what codes you have and I can look them up and explain them to you or tell you what could be causing the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

SOURCE: how to reset the check engine light on a 2005

remove the battery terminals for about 15 mins, that will reset your computer, if you turn it back on and get the same check engine light there is an underlying problem, only certain codes will trigger that light to come on, you'll need to take it to a mech to be sorted sorry to say, hope all goes well for you, matt

Hello. Actually there are a couple of ways to reset the check engine light. there are a couple ways to turn off the check engine light. The first way, which is the preferred way, is take it to a mechanic who will use a scanner and clear the codes, or you can simply unhook your battery for a few seconds, and then hook it back up. Either way will work, but if you didnt fix the problem it will come back on. NOTE: some auto zone stores, and other parts stores with scanners will do this for you as a free service.

How to reset check engine light on chevy malibu


You need an OBD-II scan tool to do that. You can get them at auto parts stores fairly cheap. Be sure that the one you get is not just a code reader....some will read but not reset codes.

I have a 2005 chevy malibu andthe gas guage stopped marking.Now it says its on empty and the check engine light is on.I need help to know what it is.


it is most likely a faulty fuel level sender in the tank, and the check engine light is on because of a fuel level sensor code. the tank will need to come out to change.
