That is probably the same as the check engine light, which would require you to use a scanner to clear the codes and turn the light off.

SOURCE: service engine soon light on a 2000 cadillac seville

The service engine soon light indicates you have a problem with the engine management system.The only way to get it to stay off is to lacate and repair whatever is not working correctly. Requires very specialized equipment. Take it to your mechanic.

It is not recomended to disconnect the battery and turn the light switch or horn or anything else on in order to clear codes stored in memory because any settings stored in the computer may be lost too.Go to autozone and rent the scanner to do it yourself.It is very easy,just connect the scanner to the connector located below the dashboard, turn the ignition on but not the engine and follow the prompts then when it says: clear codes?hit yes or enter and that is it.This is the safest way to do it.

SOURCE: Need a pic veiw of 2004 ford f350 6.0L diesel EGR

1st of all when Ford started out with putting "EGR's" on those diesel engines, they rushed it and are nothing less than a pain in the ***! i recommend having an EGR cleaning service performed by your local Ford dealer, i know they charge up the wazoo, but they're the best people to perform the service period.this is a VERY common problem with those engines and that service is "supposed" to be performed every 30K I believe. i dont recommend attempting to remove and service it youself, this WILL only make it worse.

Diesel. Reduce power lite turned on. Shut off engine and started back up - lite is off. Can it be driven?


Jerry, Drive to a good shop. So many things can cause reduced power light unfortunately. The first step would be to get the truck hooked up to a scanner/computer and have the computer scanned for trouble codes. One thing that you could try is to drain the water from the water separator that is mounted on the frame under drivers front door. If the PCM picks up on water, power is reduced until water is removed/drained. It could be an exhaust sensor that is reading faulty. Unfortunately from here its impossible to tell you exactly what the fault is because there are just so many engine sensor inputs that could cause your problem. Check the attached links, forums,instruction and guides, Good luck

2000 Ford F250 Supercab-Engine light comes on even after you reset it. No code shows up when you scan it.


If it is a diesel engine then unfortunatley they are NOT OBD II compliant. They do have the OBD II port but the scanners you can use at the A/P store won't pull those code(s). You will have to use a scanner that pulls PSD code(s) or go to a shop with the equipment or the dealer.

Ford f350 diesel engine service light remains on after oil and filter change and disconect of battery


changing your oil has nothing to do with a check engine light. a disconnect of the battery wont clear a code anymore.only way out is to have the code cleared with a scan tool which it will most likely come back on until you have the problem repaired

Service engine light


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!
