If you want to get the light to go off you need to repair the problem that is causing it to come on. When the light is on the computer within the car has sensed a component it monitors to be out of a specified range.When this happens it turns the light on and sets a trouble code that can be read with a scan tool. So if the problem goes away because of a repair or other issue so does the light.

    Disconnecting the battery will only keep the light off until the computer does it's first system scan seconds after it goes into closed loop.If the condition is still there the light will be right back on again. You need to fix the condition and the light will take care of itself.

The speedometer on my 2004 Pontiac Montana quit working. Is there a fuse for that?


Nope. The speedometer needs a signal from the vehicle speed sensor to operate. Is the check engine light on? If so, scan for any codes that may indicate a VSS problem. If no codes, possible internal cluster issue with the speedometer head

Speedometer works sometimes, then cuts out again


Does the check engine light come on? Your problem is most likely the VSS ( vehicle speed sensor ).

When your abs light comes on it means that something is wrong with you ABS system. Sometimes the abs sensor get durty and can make the ABS light come on in the dash.
