There are 2 ways to do this, use a scan tool ($50 for a basic one) to reset the light, the other is to disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes, be advised if the problem is not corrected that set the light the light will come back on in about 20 miles, also if the system is not ready u will fail smog, this means they (person doing the smog) know there was a problem.

    unpluging battery is what started our problem. Now engine light is off but won't pass inspection because computer won't completely reset. Still showing selenoid portion not reset.

My 2006 chev equinox was driving fine but then the check engine light came on...when I went to accelerate there was nothing the vehicle would not move...also the TCS light came on as well

TCS light is for electronic throttle control . This will set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code ! Your best bet is have it taken , towed to a qualified repair shop .

I need an instruction manual on how to operate a remote car starter. I have just bought a 2006 Chev Equinox with one already installed. I would like the advantages and disadvantages.Theft info,etc! Thanx...

i do not believe the equinox has a remote starter from factory so i am to assume someone had one installed. most directed electronics type alarms simply require you to press the AUX button twice to begin the remote start sequence. if this is not a Directed product then what button you press and how many times you press it may vary.
