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.

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.

you have to have a code reader or you can take to your local parts store(autozone) and they will scan and clear for free

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.

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.
