There is a counter installed in the speedo cable. Open the hood and look below the coolant resevoir, there should be a black box that the speedo cable goes through. Press the reset button on the box and the light should go off.

    You must use a screw driver, #2 Philips will do. You got to press the reset button in a good 1/4 inch. you will feel and hear it snap to reset.

Hello cherokee 2005 oxygen sensor light on when low fuel why ?


You might like to clarify what warning light is dislaying on the dash because there is no "oxygen sensor warning light" as such.

You may have a check engine light though.

What causes a 2001 jeep grand cherokee dash board intruments to go wild and engine as if it wants to cut off while driving


as far as the drivability issue yes a bad o2 sensor could cause this because the computer needs the imput from the sensor to continuasly adjust the air,fuel mixture. It might be that the dash lights and instruments might be experiencing a short or loose connection. does this condition happen when you hit a big bump turn in a certain direction etc keep track of when it happens and if anything you do causes it. it will make it much easier to work with when trying to problem solve.

While driiving mh 1998 Dodge Dakota the truck will stop running. Could this be the oxygen sensor?


If the oxygen sensor was bad, it might cause some driveability problems, but it would likely trigger a check engine or service engine soon light on the dash. Maybe look into a crankshaft positioin sensor, coil, or other cause that doesn't necessarily get red flagged by the check engine light.

Good luck on this repair.

The dealer has to "reflash" your 02 sensor light. On some Audi's, the dealer has to reset the O2 code first and if it comes on again, then they will need to replace the cat convertors.

Oxygen sensor i put a oxgen sensor in . the engine light is still on


Most auto stores will plug a diagnostic box into a plug under the dash. The car will then tell you why the light is on. Auto stores will do the diagnostic for free to sell you the parts you need to fix it. When they have your car plugged in they can also turn off the light. If the light comes back on you will probably need to do the recommended repair to keep the light off. It is possible the oxygen sensor was not bad or there were actually multiple problems causing the light to be on.
