I forgot to mention. when you remove a battery, it resets the engine light, but the trouble part will cause it to come back on.

After you replace the trouble part, the auto parts places do not like to reset the light for you. You can either remove the battery connection for a few minutes to clear it after you fix it, or in many cases, just drive with the light on, and after a few hours/days/trips around the neighborhood, the system will see the part is now good, and it will reset on it's own.

You can buy a cheap ($50) basic OBD2 scan tool and follow the instructions on how to scan the computer yourself and also reset/clear the check engine light.

The plug is near your knees under the driver side dash... should be marked OBD

SOURCE: check engine light was on then went off now back onagain

Q1: What to do if my "Check Engine" light is on?
A1: The simplest way is to visit your local dealer for proper diagnostic. They have all the equipment and information needed to correct the problem. The problem might even be covered by the manufacturers warranty and possibly repaired free of charge.

Q2: Is it safe to drive if my "Check Engine" light is on?
A2: It really depends what code is stored and what caused it. In worst cases driving with "Check engine" light may cause more damage to the vehicle. A car may even stall while driving. If your check engine light came on, I'd certainly recommend to visit your dealer or a mechanic as soon as possible, just to be on a safe side. If the Check Engine light is flashing, this means that the engine computer (ECM) has detected that your engine is misfiring, which could damage your catalytic converter. Have the your vehicle inspected as soon as possible.

SOURCE: 2000 chevy silverado z71 check engine light will not go off.

you have to know what the code is that your truck putting out your truck has 4 O2 sensors. the trucks computer is smart and the code will tell you witch one is bad but if you replace just one the next one on the same exhaust pipe will probley go bad so its safe to replace all four. the draw back to replaceing all of them is thay cost about 80 bucks for one ACDelco O2 sensor. It has to be done before it will pass Emissions. not a hard part to change about a 7/8 open end wrench will take it off. have fun.

SOURCE: tcs light and engine check light on my 2000 honda odyssey

I had the same code/symptoms a few weeks ago. Dealer did a nice job checking through all the details. Replaced the egr too, but no improvement. Finally found one cylinder not firing correctly (not the same pressure as the other cylinders.) Dealer did a value clean/adjustment, for about $250, and the problem has been gone for about a month now. We are also getting about 15% better mileage.

Hope this helps.

2000 toyota sienna enging knock when start up. engine knocks briefly than goes away after sitting a couple hours


it may be from a complete drain back of sump oil
check that you have a good quality oil filter in place with an anti-drain back valve in place ( cheap filters omit this valve)
check the viscosity of the oil you are using as it may be to light for the conditions

How to reset check engine light warning


normally to reset a check engine light all you have to do is unhook the battery for a couple of minutes and then hook it back up. if you are having a sensor problem though this check engine light will come back on after you drive the vehicle for more than 3 minutes.

Check engine light on Toyota sienna 2000 stays on


have an auto parts store scan the computer for you.
They most often do this for free (oreilly auto parts and autozone)

Write down the code they give you. Should start with "P" (po442, P1406, etc)

That will be the problem, and they will most likely offer you the part right there.

Toyota is big about EVAP system trouble codes (chech engine lights)

But it could be anything, so this should be an easy fix.

You can even ask them at the parts store where the trouble part is located.

let me know once you find the problem code and I can help more.

Why does the check engine light stay on in 1999 sienna ...it went off after new battery was installed...thenon again


The engine light stays on because the computer has detected a fault code, when disconnecting the battery the memory is cleared but the fault code will eventually be set in the computer again until the problem is fixed, since there are many reasons for the check engine light to come on it is necessary to connect the vehicle to a diagnostic computer that can read the codes, this can be done at most repair shops, the dealer or some autoparts stores.

Check engine light on


U can either turn it off with a engine scan tool or disconnect the battery for 5 min's, if u disconnect the battery u may activate your anti-theft systems, so I recommend u have it turned off with a scan tool. A quick note: If the problem in the engine controls that turned the light on is not repaired the light will come back on in 20-30 miles.
