Go to your local auto parts store and ask them to check the codes for you. Most will do this as a free service to get you to buy the parts to repair your car and this will clear the code. They can read you the codes only. They can offer advice as to how to repair your car and that will make the code go away.
Go to your local Auto parts store and ask them to read the code for you, they should do this as a free service. They should also offer advice as to the parts needed and repairs to fix the problem. They can not clear the code though.
Your local auto parts store can reset your computer with an obd-ll scanner(as long as check engine light is on)..or you could simply disconnect the battery for about 15 min. This will not mask mechanical issue with your catalytic converter or 02 sensors whichever case may be..It will only clear the code and give your car's computer a chance to re-run its emmision tests..Check engine light will be back if an emmisions part has failed or needs repair..All this to the best of my knowledge with the information provided.....Hope this helps and best of luck with your automotive endeavors.
btw, the autostore(advance auto, autozone, etc...) will normally give you a printout of your cars obd-ll codes(which cause check engine light to illuminate) if you ask. They may even offer up some guidance but keep in mind they"re trying to sell parts.
If you take it to your local auto parts store like Autozone or Advance Auto parts they should be able to read your trouble code with a scanner for FREE. Usually when the Check Engine or Service Engine light comes on it means the Vehicle Computer has read something was not right. Good Luck.
