    My husband took our 2005 tacoma to auto zone nd was told there was a slight emissions leak. How do we turn off this check engine light?

    Check engine light stays on. No engine or performance variations. Car's exhaust emits a lot of vapor and drips a bit of water from the tailpipe; this may be relevant since conventional wisdom is that the check engine light is associated with an emmisions leak or irregularity.

    I have changed both o2 sensors on my 1998 toyato avalon and reset the check engine light after driving about 1 week the light came back on whats next?

    The lights working or not has nothing to do with the check engine light. If you have an AutoZone near you, stop over there and get your car scanned with their computer tool...get the code(s) and please respond back to me for a viable solution.

No,  the check engine lamp will only come on when there is a problem in engine management system, it needs to be checked with an OBDII scan tool to find the problem causing the check engine lamp to come on.

My battery on my 1997 Pontiac grand prix keeps getting drain and my alternator is fine and I just replaced the starter but my battery getting drain and I don't know why

seems a silly answer but give it a try; check your trunk light switch... if it fails your trunk lights will either stay off or stay continuously on resulting a battery drain

1996 Plymouth breeze .put in used battery runs door light stays on check engine light stays on next day battery dead charged half a hour starts gas gauge moves every time I start it check engine light on...

Check battery and see if it can be fully charged. If there is an indicator on the battery it should be green or measure the voltage with the engine off and see if it is close to 12Vdc. If the battery tests good there could be a problem with the electrical wiring or a bad device that draws current when the car is off. Glove box light gould be on, trunk light stays on etc...

The trunk lid will not go down all the way due to the motor on the bottom latch not working. Because of the trunk ajar, the trunk lid light stays on. How do I turn off this light and save the battery...

Can you remove the light bulb?, if not then just disconnect the battery until you can get it in the shop, I had this problem once with my caddy, I had to fake out the trunk and get it to reopen and once I did that then I got it to work normally again. Hope this helps! Rick

Battery intermittantly going dead, may be months between occurences, several new batteries installed

Your under-hood or trunk light may be staying on from time to time.
To check periodically check the under-hood after dark by looking up into the engine compartment. For the trunk have someone you trust close the trunk lid while you lay inside. Or remove the bulbs for a while to see if the battery goes down.

Air bag light on ,new battery needs charge after idle two days

Hi, If you have access to a VAG-com diagnostic system it might help, but it could be something very simple like a trunk or glove compartment light staying on due to a faulty switch.

If the car were mine I would remove the neg battery terminal and check with an ammeter to find out if there is any current being drawn when the car and all accessories are switched off.

If you don't want to be even that technical, stick a running camcorder in the trunk and glove compartments and close the doors for 20 seconds. Open the door and play back the video to see if the light went out...

Hope this helps you a bit. If it does, a "Fixya!" rating would be much appreciated. If it doesn't help you, I'd be grateful if you didn't bother with a rating at present - they can't be increased later if I do manage to solve your problem! Just come back and tell me what you found. Cheers, D

Trunk lamp

Check the trunk door lock sensor, when it is defective the lamp will stay on.

If it is not that, then it is simply a contact in the trunk light wirings.

If you cannot fix it, then remove the bulb, if the light stays on for a long time when car is parked (at least a matter of days), you can find a flat battery when you try to restart.
