SOURCE: service emission warning

theres a problem with the emission system,maybe a bad fuel cap or a leak in the system, you would need to have the computer scanned for codes, these codes will give you an idea of whats not working, auto zone car parts will scan your codes for free, start with that.

How do I clear a service emissions message on a 2005 Mercury Mariner with a 3.0L engine. I have performed the required maintenance procedures at both 30,9000090's and 60,000miles. Still have message.

Warning Messages The warning messages can interrupt the display until cleared or reset by the driver. The warning messages are either single cycle, non-resettable, or repetitive warning messages.
The single cycle warning messages display once whenever the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or a fault occurs in a system, and can be cleared by pressing the RESET button. The single cycle warning messages are:
  • liftgate ajar
  • liftgate glass ajar
  • service emission system
  • low brake fluid
  • service brake system
  • check left headlamp
  • check right headlamp
  • check left turn lamps
  • check right turn lamps
  • check left high beam
  • check right high beam
  • check brake lamps
  • check parking lamps
  • washer fluid low
  • check fuel cap
  • change oil soon
  • change oil now
  • low fuel
  • service 4x4
  • turn signal on

Why is the Emission system needs service indicator light on? What does it need.

The most common problem is a leak in the evap system which vents the fumes in the gas tank to the vapor canister.
Sometimes its a loose or faulty gas cap.

What is the drive cycle for this vehecle?

Some Ford vehicles manufactured in 2004 - 2005 required harness replacement to make them compatible with emission testing equipment. A factory service bulletin (FSB) was issued for Fords but may have been expanded to include Mercury as well. You may have to have a Ford dealer check to determine whether your Mercury was modified.

Emission system

You will continue to get a warning for about 35 starts or until someone clears the onboard computer. Autozone and similar
stores will reset it for free.

Service emission sys warning message on ford Mercury Mariner 4DW 2005

Injector Cleaner is not in any owners manual

It is a few onces in many gallons of gas & does nothing

Check for codes & have the car diagnosed --as with any and
all issue from the past on any vehicle

If you over fill it you can get fuel into the evap canister

Check engine stay all the time 2005 mercury mariner


There is a lot of things that cause a engine lite to stay on.

Here is just a few things, that will have engine light stay on:

Service is due, some cars have that automatically do this when time for regular service.

Breaks, Some cars have a sensor that after a certain range on your pads, it triggers the service Light.

Oil Low, or water/antifreeze low.

Emission problem, Like fuel filter needs replacing or possible 02 sensor not working ( part of your Cadillac converter)

Battery not fulling charging, or alternator not putting out proper amps. etc,,

This list can go on and on, most the time if you have low oil, or break issue, there is separate warning lights for that.

Here is what I think, sometimes when you have something wrong with your car, if you checked your oil level, water/antifreeze level, breaks seem good, and all your other fluids are good, and your car is running good and as normal, what best to do, is take it in and have them put it on there computer, this will tell you if there is something your over looking, by normally a code that comes up on there system. Sometimes the code will come up on there computer and not on your dash warning lights. Auto Zone, normally can do this for free with there hand held computer and tell you what comes up and what to check out. And all Garages if everything is ok, can with computer turn your engine light off if everything is ok. But for sure get it checked, and don't just assume it is a faulty engine light coming on, most the time there is a reason. Thanks Mike

Ask the service manager at the nearest Ford dealership by phone if they will take a look and not charge you since it's a critical safety item and could be a manufacturer's defect. A sticking gas pedal is something they should take pretty serious since that part certainly should not fail on a five or six year old car and recent publicity surrounding the Toyota problems has made all dealerships more responsive to that type of consumer complaint or problem.

Service emission sys warning message on ford scape 2005

if you are saying your check engine or service soon light is on, it's bot a biggie. It just means you are not meeting emissions.

If it is flashing, then you are in need of immediate repair due to too much unburned fuel going to your cataltic converter.
