How dhowo you clear codes

A code reader/scan tool is the best way to clear codes. You can also disconnect the battery to clear the codes. If the loight comes back on it is a HARD code and the light will not go out until the problem is fixed

Ok had the codes come up for both crank sensors on our Pontiac Montana and knock sensor, replaced all three sensors cleared codes and the check engine light keeps coming back on after clearing codes, for...

I guess you do not know that OBD Codes have
nothing to do with replacing parts

The Codes are used along with the diagnostic
info & charts to check the system that set the codes

Only component testing will find a problem

You used the name of a codes to replace a part
with a similar name

I would guess you did no testing & have no idea why the
fault codes were set, so you found no problem, thus you
fixed nothing & the MIL Lamp is still on

You Cleared ALL DATA needed to help diagnose the issues

You lost your codes & freeze frame data at the time the codes
were set & your lost your emission monitor data

Now you get your codes & write them down
Google the codes & study the possible cause
& solutions

TYPE: OBD & your codes

How to reset computer when engine light is on so I can pass emissions on 2004 avalanche

Have you fixed whatever caused the code to come on? If not you will not be able to clear the code and pass emissions. Two reasons - 1. If the problem has not been repaired the check engine light will come back on. 2. Clearing the codes usual means that the OBDII monitors will also be cleared. There will be a code stored for this until the monitors are complete. If they see this co they know what you are up do and you do not pass.

Clear all repair codes

Remove the negative battery cable for 10-15 minutes then reconnect. If there no active current codes then this will clear codes. If there any current problems the codes will come back. The problems must be fixed to clear all codes.

I have a 2004 mazda rx 8 we may disconnect the battery to clear the "check engine light" -- if we do, will we need a "code" for the radio, or anything else?

You WILL probably need a code. Your car might not remember it as it needs the battery to keep memory. The best way to clear the check engine light is to buy a code reader. Costco has a cheepie one that works great. $35.00 . The code reader will also give you "code" that your car is throwing. Disconnecting the battery to clear the code is only a band-aid fix. If there is a problem with your car the "check engine light" will turn right back on. Just clearing the code obviously doesn't fix your problem.

ABS light is on. It needed a left front wheel bearing which I replaced. How do you reset the ABS light.

Here is the procedure for clearing ABS codes, the connector is up under the drivers side dash, it may be taped to another harness so just rip/cut the tape and pull down until you can see what your doing. Just FYI, the ABS module only holds 3 codes max in its internal memory even if there are 4 or more codes existing. Those other existing codes will not show up until you fix a concern, clear the codes, and if the light is still on all that means is that you just made room for another code to show up. As long as you only have the one code, you'll be fine. But if you had 3 codes, and you clear them, all the codes for the problem you fixed will be gone but now new codes may be there.
I hope this info helps!~subyguru~Clearing Memory


  1. After calling up a trouble code, disconnect diagnosis connector terminal 8 from diagnosis terminal.


  1. Repeat 3 times within approx. 12 seconds; connecting and disconnecting terminal 8 and diagnosis terminal for at least 0.2 seconds each time.
NOTE: After diagnostics is completed, make sure to clear memory. Make sure only start code (11) is shown after memory is cleared.

Clear code for engine light

The code clearing happens via two things> first, resolve the issue causing the error code. The code will come back if you do not resolve the issue. you can clear the codes by using a code reader, but it woudl likely reappear. Fix the issue causing the error code.
Remember, the code is a clue, not always the issue.
