    what are you scanning this vehicle with exactly , wondering if your scanner is capable of seeing body or transmission codes , some generic scanners & code readers are capable of scanning for power train codes but not body and other systems , yet allows clearing all type codes , which could explain why your not seeing the problem , some codes are soft codes that won't store in memory , if you only have a code reader , you might try asking a parts house , autozone to scan it for you , see what they come up with .

Check engine Light (emission Control System)


wait about a day and let the car dry out some. Then reset the check engine light by unhooking the negative cable from the battery for 15 minutes or more. Hook it back up and see if the cel even comes back on. It probably wont but if it does, go to parts store and get the code and go from there. Shouldnt be a big deal, car is prob ok. Just get code if it does happen to come back on and reveal the year, make and model of the car and the code. But you need to reset the light 1st to see if it comes back on.

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

Maintenance light blinks several times when I turn my 1999 Acura TL on. It goes off after about 30 seconds should I be concerned.


this may mean its time for an oil change it's the cars way of saying it's time for a scheduled maintenance.
Turn the key off and push and hold the select button. Keep holding while you turn the key to the on position (not the start position) keep holding for about 15 seconds then turn the key back off . next turn the key back to on position the light should only come on once. now you can start the car

There could be a hundred causes for a check engine light. First step is to hook up a computer scan tool and see what codes the computer has. The next step depends on the codes.

Service engine light stays on, I have a 1999 aurora


the first thing you should do it unhook the battery for 20-30 minutes to reset the fault and the computer. Hook it back up and run it, to see if the light comes back. If it comes back, then you'll have to take it somewhere to get it scanned to see what's causing the error code. If it goes away, it could have just been a glitch in the system.

2005 ford taurus engine light on


Try disconnecting the battery for 10 mins.This may reset the lights timer. If it comes back on within the next few days the take it to a large auto parts store and most will bring their computer out and hook it to your car and read the code the light will leave in your car computer,then they tell what the code says and try to sell you the part.You might car the auto parts store first and tell them what you have and ask if then can read your code for you.Its usually a free service.
