To reset the computer, disconect the battery waite 10 minutes and hood it back up. But then you have to relearn the computer. for that talk to your local **FORD dealer for the procedure**. it should be start the car and let it run till the fan kicks on (operating temp) then place the car in reverse, let it idle a couple minutes then drive. Shut it off and then restart and the rest of the learning is done over time driving the car.

    can we do it on our own if not do you know about what that will cost

    You can do it on your own, The reason I say to call the ford dealer is for the procedure, have to go through it any time you change the battery, it's guide, the car will learn on it's own it will just take a little longer. it uses all it sensor to set the engine controls for optimum performance and fuel economy. Basicly if you want you could just drive it and it will learn, but it would run funny for a week or two.

I want to reset my check engine light on my 2003 Mercury Sable and I do not know how to do it without purchasing a scanning unit. Does someone know how to? If so, please let me know.

if you have an auto parts store around your area they should be able to reset and clear them if they cant do it u can unhook the battery for 10min and that will clear any codes. when you hook the battery back up if you get a check engine light back on that means a new code or stored code is present and will have to be read by a shop or auto parts store.

2003 Mercury Sable headlight bulb replacement

This problem is now resolved, thanks to a prior post by sableowner.

The 2003 Sable has the same headlight assembly and removal/replacement instructions as the 2001 Sable. Once I had this information in hand, bulb replacement was easy.
