    Check Engine light? Find out first what code it is! If you don't have a scanner usually you can go to a parts store like Autozone an they can scan it for free!(Do not let them sell you Bosch Platnum spark plugs!)

Sadly the 70mph and 3 grand problem is something that cant be fixed. its because of the gearing these little kias have. believe it or not these were designed for offraoding. one thing you can do is go to a larger size tire a 235/75/R15 fit stuck with little or no rubbing and will bring the highway rpms down but the speedo will be off. as for the check engine light. get us a code and we can help with that too.

I have a vibration at 70 miles per hour


if the wheel alignment is faulty ( castor wobble ) at 70 mph there is no way that you can describe it as a vibration as it virtually rip the steering wheel out of your hands. If it is a torque converter problem then at around 3850-4025 rpm stationary there will be a vibration of the vehicle and engine The sort of vibration that you are experiencing at 70 mph will come from a drive line problem. If rear wheel drive then it could be faulty "U" joints, worn slip joint or failed rear engine mount
If front wheel drive it may be cv joints or bent drive shafts,wheel bearings or brake callipers not moving freely on the mounting bolts.

How do I reset check engine light on 1997 jeep grand cherokee


no engine size stated, so NO exact answers. ever.
same as all cars in the USA> from easy to risky
1: push the scan tool , reset. (any scan tool made works)
2: pull the hot all times fuse to PCM memory (fsm show this)
3: pull battery neg lug, (this will kill radio station programming)
the newer the car the worse #3 gets.

its on because there is a problem.
why hot scan it and see what the poor thing is attempting to tell you.
DTCs dump the DTC'S and post them.
then clear it, and drive fast for 20 miles to see if it comes back.

What you replaced is the APP(accelerator pedal position) It is part of the electronic throttle control,what was truly needed is know as the TAC MOTOR. This recieves signal from the APP.The TAC is what accelerate the car.The only thing you can do other than replace the TAC,is do a TAC relearn .Turn thhe key off. wait ten seconds,Turn key on with the engine off.leave 1 minute. Turn key off start the vehicle you will hear the TAC motor setting itself.

2000 pontiac grand am will turn over but won't crank


Hello! Any major auto parts retailer can scan your computer and pull the details of the error code that's causing the check engine light to come on. My first guess would be that you have a crankshaft position sensor issue, but the details from the code reader will tell you for certain.

Thanks for using FixYa!
