Cleared check engine light. How do I pass smog check?


Clearing the Check Engine light does not repair anything - it only turns off the light and clears the error codes. The problem(s) that caused the light to occur are still going to be present and the light will probably come back on, anytime from a few minutes to a few days depending on the problem(s). What you NEED to do is to extract the error codes that come with the light and take the corrective action(s) to repair the deficiencies. That will probably make the vehicle able to pass smog checks. Of course, now that you've cleared the Check Engine light, you've also erased the error codes, so you will need to wait for it to return to get the data you need for repairs.

How do I reset the computer system on a 2006 Ford Explorer


Are you asking how to reset the computer or how to clear an error code/check engine light? Clearing a check engine light (which will also clear the error code) can be done with a code scanner. These are usually available for use at little or no cost at any larger auto parts store (they may even connect the scanner for you and record/clear the code). One word of caution, however: if you clear the code but don't repair the cause, the code and light will return after a brief amount of time. Now as for resetting the computer itself, not recommended that you try since error codes are stored in non-volatile memory. Disconnecting the battery's positive terminal for an hour or so may clear the check engine light, but, again, it will reappear and regenerate the error code unless the cause is fixed. Good luck.

After replacing sensors and cat, I continue to get the check engine light after it's been cleared?


the check engine light comes on when a sensor is giving problem, when you clear the codes and the light came back did you check to see which code came back? Because right there would be the problem.

Check engine light is on but it needed an oil change and i got one but the light hasnt gone off, how do i reset it?


The check engine light does not refer to oil changes, this is for emmision and fuel management as well as a diagnostic tool for other engine components. The only wasy to clear this is to have the dealer clear them or repair what ever is causing the light. It will however clear it self after about 20 times of starting the car and the computer not seing any more bad scans from what ever caused the light to come on in the first place. You can have Auto Zone pull the codes from your car and tell you what caused the light to come on in the first place. To clear the aoil change light turn the key on and press the gas pedal 3 times all the way to the floor without the engine running.

My check engine light came on. The dealership said "filler neck leaking causing evaporative leak." The gas cap also says "loose cap will turn on check engine light." Would like to try a new gas cap but...


sad to say sir that how to clear the code is not easy in manual clearing, you need diagnostic tool to clear the dtc, but some dtc will cleared by 20-50 consecutive warm up if no other trouble code detected by the computer

How to Clear a Check Engine Light and Reset the Computer.


you can use the scanner to clear the computer or even disconnect the battery for a minute or two then reconnect it but if the light comes back it needs to be fixed to keep the light off. just fixing the problem won't turn the light off

How do you reset engine check light on 2004 Subaru Outback?


u can clear/reset the check engine light either with a scan tool, hit clear codes, or u can just disconnect the battery, the scanner clearing method is preferred as disconnecting the battery can cause temporary stalling issues.
