Not possible.
The problem has to be fixed, then the trouble code erased, to make the light stay off.

How to get rid of a check light with out scan tool

Check light is a warning sign of something faulty, like sensors,relays,solenoids, and even a short. So to get rid of the check engine you must run codes with scanner and fix it. No other turn around possible. If you tamper with the function of the instrumental panel it will cost you more. Plus is unlawful mostly in the 51 States to modify such thing to pass emissions. Good luck

Why is the check engine light always coming on? I've had it checked and they always managed to fix it so that it would go off but now after about 6 months it's on again.

Sometimes it's just humidity that causes the check engine light to turn on when nothing else is seemingly wrong with a car. I had a 1998 Buick LeSabre and I live in Wisconsin. When it would rain heavily or snow and sometimes even during a humid summer, the CEL would all-of-a-sudden turn on. Then it would mysteriously turn off sometime later--sometimes right away when the weather cleared up and sometimes it took weeks. At first I would spend Beacoup$$$
running back and forth to the mechanic; then I decided to get it checked for free at AutoZone--free diagnostics!! I then just kept my eye on it . I certainly didn't want to miss a Real problem. You also have an older car and this is what I would suggest that you do also.

Check engine light solid

Most of the newer vehicles have a senser that will turn the check engine light on, even when it's time to change the oil. After they change it, they reset the check engine light to turn it off. It could be something as simple as that or even an air filter needing to be changed. The dealer can tell you how to reset that light to turn it off. Good luck!

Acura 3.2TL: Brought my 2003 3.2 TL in for an oil change it wasworking fine prior now my TCS light and engine light is on

If it happened right after the oil change, I would take it back there first.
Even if they can't fix it, they need to know about it if you have it fixed somewhere else. They might be on the hook for the repairs.
They could have left something unplugged which would turn on the check engine light. The traction control is affected by the engine performance.

My check engine light is on. How do I turn it off?

On the 1997 Lincoln Town Car, it has an OBD-II computer on it where an OBD-II scanner can clear the engine light by erasing the codes, after repairs are performed on the circuit that originally tripped the check engine light.

One can buy an OBD-II engine scanner for under $100 from Sears or Walmart, or a local auto parts store, or even or

My traction light and check engine light is on...dont know whats wrong with it...i even got it checked out and they couldnt tell me...

If you had it checked out the Mechanic should have hooked up a OBD II scanner to receive the Trouble Diagnostic Codes to it. The codes will reveal why your Check Engine light is on and how to fix it. You can go to your local Autozone store and they can read your codes for free and let you know what the problem is. The Traction light being on is all related to the Trouble Code you have. Once you fix the problem both lights will turn off.

I think my mecahnic, unplugged my sercice engine soon light on my 2004 Mercury Mountaneer instead of fixing it how can I tell. even when I turn the ket to on the light does not come on. Please Help

The check engine light should come on when the key is in the on position. If it does not, you may have blown the bulb or the mechanic may have pulled the bulb out. I would take it to another mechanic to have it check out.

Check engine light comes on if gas cap is loose (according to the dealer) - not really wanting to go back to the dealer repeatedly for a quick fix to turn off the light, but not wanting to ignore the check...

replace the gas cap .. clean the gas filler pipe where it seals against the gas cap .. .. even a small crack in the rubber seal will trigger the check engine light ..

Lights work, but turn key and nothing except brake light comes on but no check engine, etc., and starter won't even click, no check engine light comes on dodge stratus

check the fuse under the hood for your starter and if it is blown replace it however this is only a quick fix as I have just fixed this problem, after time you will continue to blow fuses and the problem is your starter. However check the fuse first and see if it is blown, if so replace try to start your car, if it starts have the starter checked as well as the ignition switch.
