You will need to have engine codes pulled from vehicles computer and perform repair, before the light will go off.
Any diagnostic repair shop should be sufficient to help you. A place that specializes in engine diagnostics and engine repair.

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!

Went to have my 97 skylark smoged and was was told my check engine light was not working. Tech said it has something to do with code p1406. Any suggestions?


Code p1406 is an EGR code but that has nothing to do with the light not working. Some one has probably taken the bulb out instead of fixing the EGR valve problem. You could just have a bad EGR valve or the ports under the EGR valve could be plugged with carbon . You need to remove the EGR valve to pinpoint the exhaust gas curcuit problem.

Problems getting car smoged. the engine light keeps going on and off.


mcdevito75 here, BEST BET let your local shop run a scan on your cars computer, 1 or more sensors that control engine emmissions may be bad, if so you"d never pass smog inspection. Sorry.

Check Engine Light ON


What codes come on? P0420

The converter's only purpose is to reduce emissions from the engine, in rare cases the converter can disintegrate which could result in a loss of power but this is not very common,

This means that you're Cat needs repair or replacement, You're car will not pass legally smoged without fixing this. :

Good luck

Check engine light is on, we had it fixed but 100 miles later it went on again


had my check engine light cleared to get it smoged. was told by smog company that the panels take 100 miles to reset. seems that the fix was not really a fix after all. they must have cleared the code and it took your computer the 100 miles to identify the same problem your mechanic was supposed to fix, but didn't. good luck fighting the same thing.

I just bought an 88 samurai. The check engine


disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, if light comes back on you have what is called a hard fault, that fault will keep the light on until u fix it.

P171 and p174 check engine light


Normally you can disconnect the battery for a few minutes and this does the trick. If the light comes back on, you may need to read the codes again. And, if it faults the MAF...you know it is not that and may be something else.
