Yes and no disconnect the battery both sides, now without touching the battery touch black to red wires, this resets any codes. if the light comes back on you will need a pcm scan to get any error codes from it.

    it may be something besides an oil change like a bad sensor i would get the ecm scanned. usually you can get it scanned for free at auto parts store ,autozone.

(1995 Cadillac Eldorado) - Service Engine Soon light is on.


If this problem just started I would try to get a jump on it. It will be easier to track down if the light just started coming on. Otherwise other problems may come into play and the mechanic will need longer to sort them out. At around 70.00hr.Cheapest fix is to try and drop in a set of plugs. Good luck.
