2004 porsche cayenne i reset computer and now it will not start

Clearing Codes, clears all data, then all the emission
monitors have to run again, or you won't be excepted
to inspection

Clearing codes & data,has nothing to do with diagnosing
why you got the fault codes & fixing the problems

How would clearing a dash light help pass inspection?

Before you got down the street two houses, the light would
be back,the car has a failed system ,thus the light on the
dash after the motor is started.

You cleared all data,now a shop can't even work on it
You removed all vehicle history & codes

Flat bed it to a shop & they will make the repairs you neglected
to do, while trying to get hundred miles before the parameters
on a failed system went out of range & the dash light came back

Need to study OBD 2 Systems on the internet & leave the vehicle
work to the pros

Recently my Honda Civic 2005 dashboard, head light started flickering. When I hit breaks paddle the dashboard lights dim. Please help.

bad 12v DC battery power feeds, this is called {Power Distribution
so can be lots of reasons.
1: corroded battery lugs tops the list and are checked at every service point. skipped this?
2:loose or bad fuse to HL.
3: corrosion at any related connectors. (12v side or ground side)

after an inspection passes, (ask) we wip out the DMM meter
turn the dial to volts and find it. easy.
very easy. ask)
if all this is unclear, go to the man, the ASE mech, (badge on sleeve)

pS: dash dimming means lost PARK lights too.
so is more serious,, or more closer to battery this fail.

Dash light wont go off

That would be your "LOW RANGE" indicator light. Confirming that you are in 4wdLow. If it remains on when not in low then you might try shifting from low to hi (or vice versa) travel a few feet and then transfer back. You should notice the light going on or off when passing thru the center of the shift gate between low/hi.
To be certain, the factory owners manual has simple detailed instructions on this procedure.
Hope this helps.

Reset sensors/wont pass inspection

Do you have the cats on the muffler. If so, there is a chance that the glass pack muffler will pass inspection. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Orange motor symbol in dash of 1997 cavalier

Your car has somewhere a computer.
Nowadays most of the electronic circuitry goes "through" that computer.
Whenever the light comes on and stays on after starting the engine, there is a problem somewhere.
Here locally there are car parts stores, with hand held "computer testers".
These stores can test your computer for free and determine some of the reasons that light stays on.
You can also buy a "computer tester" of your very own if you wish. Prices around here run from 30 to 150 dollars, and include a book either on what is wrong by the code which reads on the display of the tester, or at least will tell you how to hook it up.
Usually there is a plug hanging under the dash, where you are not supposed to see it, that the store will use to plug in the tester.
The "check engine" light can actually tell you there may be several dozen problems, or maybe even more!
Some of these problems will affect the operation of your car, some will not.
A few of the you can fix yourself, most require a shop to fix.
If your area or state has vehicle inspections, your vehicle probably will not pass an inspection with the light on.

Audi A3 Replacement of dash board with second hand one.

yes you can,

But stiill ther is a problem ,like you have to sacrifice with your dashboard's botom front side some cuts,

like when you installed your old dashboard you have to cut that part which interfier with dashboard some wiring can passed out but some fual pump cant buy passed cause if we do add some pipes for closing cicuit than its not create some pressure as car injection system needs,

so as you need some cuts from your dashboard you can & some joints you have to do but,

you can do this or can extend some pipelines for fual pumps but you will loose some power at higher RPM ,

so take easily,do with care,
