If the check engine light or MIL - malfunction indicator light , or service engine soon light is on , it means there is a problem with the engine management system ! an it means it set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in the PCM / ECM - electronic control module ! You can try resetting all you like but it's not going to stay out ! You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes an fix it ! Check Engine Code Scanner Advance Auto Parts

2006 explorer reset check engine


When the Check Engine Light is flashing ON it means that the computer has detected a misfire in the engine.It is not good to drive a vehicle that has a flashing check engine light; one or more sensor in your vehicle is advise about an code fault. I suggest scanning for know what code is in there and solve it.

In some vehicles, a red check-engine light means the car needs absolute immediate attention while a yellow check-engine light means you need to make an appointment soon. The light is used to indicate PCM (Powertrain Control Module) problems that are associated with your vehicle's emissions system.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Oil Light is on need to Reset it. Don't have manaual.


Do you mean the "Oil" light or the "Oil Life System" light?
.
If the oil light is on, you need to stop operating the engine and have it checked to find out why the light is telling you that there is no oil pressure.

If you mean the Oil Life light, Then here are the instructions:

How to Reset the CHANGE ENGINE OIL Message

1. With the ignition key in RUN but the engine off,

fully push and release the accelerator pedal slowly

three times within five seconds.

2. Turn the key to OFF.

If the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message comes

back on, the engine oil life monitor has not reset.
Repeat the procedure.

How do you reset the check engine light on a 2003 gmc yukon xl


the check engine light means you have a trouble code in your vehicles computer. After fixing the problem with the yukon the check engine light can be reset sometimes by disconnecting the battery and disconnecting the ECM fuse. Although some parts stores are known to check your codes for free they might also clear them with a scan tool.

CHECK ENGINE LIGHT COME ON


The light is coming back on because the cars computer is detecting that there is still a problem after it's reset. You need to have the engine codes scanned to determine what the problem is and correct it so the light can be reset. Check your local auto parts store, most do free scans of engine codes and will give you the meaning of the codes and what to do to fix the problem. If you need further help, post the codes here and any other info regarding the problem. Good luck
