hey yeah actually i managed to turn it off my self not only that but i managed to find the error codes too, its an easy process i thing first you put the key in the ignition but dont start the car, wait exactly 3 seconds after putting the key in the ignition make sure u turn the key to the number 3, an then press the accelerator down an up (all the way) 5 times in less thaN 5 seconds, wait 7 seconds (exactly) and hold the accelerator down for 10 or more seconds( make sure u dont release it at all for 10 or more seconds) and then the service engine light starts to flash count the fist flash (which is a slower flash) if u get 10 flashes it means the first number is 0, the second set of flash s will be a bit faster, count this too to get ure second digit of the code do the same for the other 2 sets which will be faster also than previous ones, once uve got ure code just search it up .......to reset the code hold the accelerator down for 10 second an then turn the ignithion off and on again

The check engine light indicates that the "on board computer" has detected a fault in the operation of the components that control engine and/or transmission performance. The computer in your vehicle is the OBD II and will "set" the check engine light for a variety of reasons. It could be anything from a loose gas cap to a defective catylitic converter to a bad fan relay. Even though the vehicle may still start and run, as long as the check engine light is on it is likely that the computer is running open loop. That is, without computer control. In this mode it may be hard to start, will get 30-40% lower fuel efficiently, and could allow the engine to damage itself to the point of total failure. The good news is that the computer stores "codes" that are extremely accurate in their ability to identify the failure that occured. Take your ride to any Auto Zone and they will scan it and tell you what the code is, what it means, and suggest repair scenarios. Good luckand I hope this helps! Dano
