Hello, Not being a Ford man myself but have reset many service interval lights, Try holding down either trip meter button or odometer reset whilst turning on the ignition. You may need to hold it down for 10/20 seconds. If unsure do what I've done in the past hold down all buttons on speedo face.
Good Luck and Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hi Steve, Take the vehicle for a diagnostic scan. The engine check light is indicating a fault and has nothing to do with service requirements. Regards John

Service Engine soon light just activated at 84000 miles. What can cause this on this model?

Time for factory service, that happens on those between 80000, and 100000 miles. Ford lets you know. They reset it once service is complete.

Hello, my name is Chris and I am having trouble figuring out what is wrong with my 2000 Ford escort zx2 s/r 2.0L DOHC. Recently my Check Engine Light came on and when I pulled the code from the computer it...

That code is Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit (Bank 1).

Depending on your troubleshooting skills, you will need to do pinout tests at the powertrain control module, variable cam timing vehicle harness, and variable cam timing solenoid.

A troubleshooting flowchart can likely be obtained from a Mitchell's, Chilton's, or Motor's repair manual at your local library.

Service engine light is for soooo many issues that your engine might find is wrong w/it... you should take it to an Electric mechanic so that he can check w/a computer whats EXACTLY wrong w/it... ask arround for an honest one too, that always helps =)

Alot of times a voltage drop to the O2 Sensor can cause your check engine light to come on. Even tho the O2 sensor is wrong fine.
