you would need a scan tool to reset it, if it is the gas cap and you fixed the problem with it then the light will go out after 100 miles of driving with a couple of cold starts. if it doesnt go out after a few days of driving then that wasnt the problem.

SOURCE: My Mazda5 "Check Engine" light is on. Fault code

FOR CODE P2106 (INTERNAL ENGINE OFF TIMER PERFORMANCE) THE FLOW CHART WILL LEAD YOU TO BELIEVE ITS THE PCM. THIS WILL PROBABLY NOT FIX IT. FIRST CHECK TO SEE IF NON FACTORY SPARK PLUGS HAVE BEEN INSTALLED. IF THEY HAVE THIS IS MOST LIKELY THE CAUSE.THEY WILL PRODUCE INTERFERENCE THRU THE COIL WIRING AND CAUSE THE PCM TO THINK THERE IS A PROBLEM. SIMPLY PUT FACTORY PLUGS BACK IN ENGINE AND CLEAR CODES.PROBLEM SHOULD BE GONE.I HAVE BEEN THRU THIS. SID CODESPOTI (SERVICE MANAGER)STOKES MAZDA, CHARLESTON,SC

2009 Mazda 5 check engine light after loose gas cap


If the code would have been due to the cap problem then the code will go away. Try resetting the code. Also try diagnosing again after disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting it after a few minutes.

Have a 2012 hyundai sonota and i pumped e85 into the tank last night, drove my car today now the check engine light is on. I don't think my car takes E85 but I didn't know that til after I p


If its running o.k. Than I would bet the check engine light is on because there are codes for system too lean. Burn off the tank of e-85 as soon as you can, than fill with regular unleaded. The light should go out after several drive cycles after everything has gone back to normal or you can swing by ou local parts store and see if they can clear the codes

Scanned the PCM; If the check-engine light comes on, here are some tips on what you should do:
- Look for a serious problem that requires immediate attention. Check your dashboard gauges and lights for indications of low oil pressure or overheating. These conditions mean you should pull over and shut off the engine as soon as you can find a safe place to do so. On some cars, a yellow "check engine" means investigate the problem, while a red "check engine" means stop right now.
- Try tightening your gas cap. This often solves the problem. Keep in mind that it may take several trips before the light resets. Some vehicles have a separate indicator that warns of a loose gas cap before the condition sets off the "check engine" light.
- Reduce speed and load. If the "check engine" light is blinking or you notice any serious performance problems, such as a loss of power, reduce your speed and try to reduce the load on the engine. For example, it would be a good idea to stop towing a trailer. Have the car checked as soon as possible to prevent expensive damage.
- Contact OnStar, if available. If you have a 1997 or later General Motors vehicle equipped with OnStar and an active OnStar subscription, contact an advisor who can read the trouble code remotely and advise you about what to do.
- Have the code read and the problem fixed. If you want to diagnose the malfunction yourself, you can buy a scan tool at most auto parts stores. Prices range from about $40 to several hundred, depending on the model and the features. The tools come with instructions on how to hook them up and decipher the codes. But unless you have a good knowledge of automotive diagnostics, you're probably better off taking the vehicle to a professional. Some automotive parts stores will read and interpret the code for you without charge. Unless there is an easy fix, they may simply refer you to a mechanic.
- Don't go for a state emissions test. In a late-model car, an illuminated "check engine" light probably is a sure sign your car will fail the test. In some states, it's an automatic failure, even if the problem was nothing more than a loose gas cap. By the way, don't bother trying to fool the inspection station by disconnecting the battery or using any other method to erase the trouble code and turn off the "check engine" light. Your vehicle's computer will let the inspection station know that its codes have been erased, and you'll just have to go back again.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2005 Hyundai Tucson v-6 4wd. 20,000 miles check engine light came on car runs fine?????Any ideas?


There are several dozen codes to the engine emissions system. From minor (gas cap loose) to major (ECM failure) Some senosrs can be bad and the engine runs fine, but you can loose 10, 20% fuel economy. You need to have the codes read. parts store do it for free. But don't buy a part just for the code. It could be something else causing the code to pop. Let me know.
