Question about 1999 Hyundai Accent
I own a hyundai coupe se 1999
was wondering if someone could tell me how to reset ecu as i put some new sensors on , and where is the engine management light as i cant see one on the dash, would be greatful for help
Ok guys check this out.I ran out of petrol(ok I am a girl!) and the yellow engine light stayed on afterwards.Hyundai said I would have to sell my soul to get it sorted but would be ok to run I t failed it's Mot on emission,but the local garage managed to temporarily fix the problem to get it through.The light came back on after wards-!!! So I did some research on Internet and here's how to reset it yourself-- Take off positive lead from battery,then turn ignition key on to get rid of any stored power.Then pump the footbrake(yeah I wondered why!) for about 20 secs.You will hear allsorts of clicking in the engine as ecu resets.Then reconnect battery lead!! Wallah !!!!
I went armed with this knowledge to the local garage(much to their amusement) and asked if they could reset the ecu,and they said a dealer would have to do it.I said well I know how and asked them to disconnect battery for me(their frowns got deeper by the minute).The rest I did in front of them,They were gobsmacked!!!!
They were amazed and asked me to call in a few days to tell them if it had worked permanent as they had learned something----so far so good!!!!
I f you have a computorised radio make sure you know the reset code for that as it may knock it off.
The ecu resets when you drive away.Now drives like a dream.

My light came on on my accent, I took a look at my air filter and found that a mouse was using it to store food, I cleaned it but the light stayed on, so I disconected the battery for an hour or so when I put it back on, guess what, light off back to normal
