Turn the key off, then hold the odometer reset button in, turn key on and keep holding, the light will flash off then on once, keep holding until light stays out, start car and all should be ok

    all it is for is to let you know when you need and oil change usually should come on 6-8000 kms, should be reset when oil is changed

Engine checks lights on,blink 6 times then shut off,what seems to be the problem?

DIYer? If not, time to take by a competent service shop, or the dealer. The 6 blink probably is an error code for a major problem. When did you last service the car according to MFG instructions? Check all fluids.

You've got trouble codes stored by they're most likely enhanced codes that your code reader can't read. Inexpensive code readers and only read generic trouble codes. Codes above P0800 are "enhanced" code that require a more professional scan tool to access.

Why does the gear drive light blink?

If you mean the D4 light, blinking means that your computer believes there is a problem with the systems controlling your transmission. Your computer probably has codes related to the problem. You should connect an OBDII code reader or scanner to your DTC port (somewhere under your dashboard) and read the codes. If you don't know what I'm talking about, Autozone, or a place of the same sort, will connect their code reader and gets the codes for you without charge.
Hope this gets you started on finding out the problem.

Car almost didnt start then s light blinked the


The 'S' light is also your diagnostic, the answer lies in the 'sequence' which the S light blinks.


Long blinks: 1st digit
short blinks: 2nd digit

e.g.1 - if there are 6 short blinks (followed by long pause) then repeats 6 blinks again, the code = 6.

e.g.2 - if there is 1 long blink, then 4 short blinks (followed by long pause) then repeats again, the code = 14.

The ECU may show more more than one code.

Once you determine the correct code/s, post them here so someone can assist you further.
