Why would my check engine light came on after I replaced my battery lights on my radio & clock are dim, sometimes there fine.I plugged an OEM meter in it's givingt he code p1633 What could this mean?


Fords have a problem if the battery runs flat or they are disconnected thus removing power from the onboard computer(s).

You may need to take the vehicle to a dealer service center to rectify the electronics problem for you and reset your computer.. To avoid this problem you need to connect up a second power source to the main leads to the battery while you are disconnecting those leads and replacing the battery so as to retain power to the onboard systems at all times.

In any event here is an item that may help you...........

Why does my service engine soon light stay on for 18 seconds just long enough to make check engine light come on.


have code checked for check engine -the service light and the check engine may be a coincidence but the service are just reminders and the check engine is a problem that the vehicle onboard diagnostics computer found and is letting you know about so most auto stores can scan your vehicle for free and the code will be your start point towards repairing or solving your problem

Reset service light on 2004 acura


It depends on which "service" light you are talking about. "Service Engine"? "Service Vehicle"? In any case, you must scan your onboard computer network to find out why the light has been turned on. Then, any necessary repairs need to be made before clearing any fault codes in the system. Otherwise, the light will just come back on again.

Hi RS, You'll need to have the service reset carried out with someone with a scanner. That will solve the problem! Regards Johngee10

Service engine light is on even after disconnecting the battery for five minutes


The service engine light is on because the built in onboard diagnostic system it trying to tell you that it has diagnosed a problem and stored it as a trouble code in the vehicles computer. Disconnecting the battery wont make it go away. You should get the codes read, and the code reader can reset the light, but if the problem is still there the light will come back on pretty soon. Most major auto parts stores will read these codes for you for no charge. Write down the code that is in your trucks computer so you will know what the computer logged as trouble.

Service engine light comes out but i changed the oil and theres no code problems


this is automatically done by the onboard computer
all it is for is to remind you to take it to the dealership
to do maintenance and they have the ability to turn off the light untill next time. mileage triggers the light
some auto parts stores have scanners that can reset the light

Check engine light is on


The check engine light coming on indicates that a "trouble code" has been set by the onboard computer and is stored in it's memory. There is a wide range of possible causes, such as bad sensor(s), wiring faults, leaking or disconnected vacuum line(s), out of acceptible range engine environmental variables... Some manufacturers even program the light to come when the maintenance schedule calls for service! (a clever ploy!)
The good news is that most of the larger auto parts stores now offer free computer diagnostic scans, where they can read the trouble code and reset/clear the check engine light. Some causes are a LOT more serious than others, so act accordingly on the indicated problem... and some causes are merely "glitches" in the system when there really is nothing wrong!
Hope this is helpful, and good luck with the Passat... nice car!
