Check engine light is on.

I want to be able to see what code is stored. How can I get into the computer? Do I need the OBD tool to do it or is there another way? I have a 2002 Isuzu Rodeo.

    I install an oxygen sensor twice same one but engine lights comes back on with same code why?

  • dwalters707 Apr 25, 2009

    I have this same problem. We also installed 2 different oxygen sensors and they went out very quickly. When I asked my mechanic he stated that if you live anywhere with lots of dirt that blows which I do. (West Texas) Then they are not going to last. I just quit installing them he said there was nothing to worry about with the light.

Most auto parts stores should read the code for you for free.
I've seen it done at Advanced Auto Parts twice with my neighbor!

What is a scan tool


A scan tool allows for the OBD II (On Board Diagnostics) codes to be read from the engine computer in a car. These are common electronic diagnostics tools used by automotive technicians. They are usually used when a check engine light comes on to determine the error codes associated with the check engine light.


They almost always connect via a standard plug on the divers side under the dash.


Most automotive parts supplier will check a car with complementary service to determine the codes stored in a customers automobile.

How do I clear check engine light


The check engine light is set by the onboard computer detecting a malfunction or out of tolerance condition. The code(s) can be read with an OBD-II scanner. Once the condition(s) that cause the codes are repaired, the code can be cleared with the OBD-II scantool. You can purchase these tools at local auto parts stores. Be careful though; the cheapest ones will only read the codes, but cannot reset the Check Engine Light.

Reset check engine light


Most of the larger-chain auto parts stores have hand-held OBD II scan tools and will allow you to use them there at no cost. Plug the scanner into the OBD port and read/record the code(s) stored in your car's computer. The scanner should also have a function that erases stored codes and turns off the "check engine" light. Then, ask the counterman/woman what the code means and decide whether or not to have the malfunction repaired or serviced. Good luck.

Check engine light GL 350


If the CHECK ENGINE light come on, the PCM (computer car) have stored a fault code there; I suggest scanned this and note what fault code is there. Sometimes Autozone or AutoShop make this reader with OBD tools for free.

Keep in touch.

If check engine light is turn on in dashboard, need to scanned the ECU (computer) to know exactly what fault code is stored there.

Some Autozone or Autoshop with OBD Scanrer Reader tools make this for free; just note this code numbers and send us for additional details to diagnostic and solutions.

Keep in touch.

How can i turn of check engine light :


The check engine light is on because the computer has detected a problem. If your car is a model year 1996 or newer then it is OBD II and you will need an OBD II scanner to retrieve the code(s). Most scanners have the ability to "reset" the light also. You can disconnect the battery for 15 minutes and the light will go off, but if the same problem exsists, the light will come back on.

What does it mean when my 2003 honda pilots check engine light comes on?


Hi, the check engine light will require you to have the engine CPU scanned for trouble code's. This can only be administered with the assistance of a diagnostic computer scan tool OBD II. You can purchase this tool, at your local auto parts store, or you can just have the scan ran at your local auto zone parts store, free of charge. Once the diagnostic scan is administered, you will be able to isolate the issues that have caused the check engine light.
This scan tool will display a print out code and the location of the issue, on the engine, as well. There are Many issues that will cause the engine light to illuminate, but the most common cause will be a failed monitoring sensor, or sensor harness failure(separated power wire, or ground).
After retrieving the code, it will be interpreted to know what caused the lights to come up and that will be used to fix the problem.

The check engine light suddenly came on. I checked the engine oil and it is ok while the car computer reflects oil life at 30%. The engine runs smoothly, is not overheating and has never given any...


It can be many things. The Check Engine Light indicates the ECU has detected that something is not as it should be with the emissions system. If the engine is running great then you can continue to drive the car until you get it repaired. You need to have the computer scanned with an OBD2 scan tool. This tool will retrieve the code that has been set by the ECU. That code will tell you where to start looking for the problem. It can be as simple as a loose gas cap, a defective O2 sensor, or any number of other problems. Some auto parts stores will scan the vehicle for free.
