To reset the light after a repair, you can either take the vehicle to a garage with an OBDII scanner, buy an OBDII scanner for about 50 bucks from harbor freight and reset it yourself, or simply pull the battery terminals off for a while. The computer requires power to remember the error codes. Removing the battery will kill the computer and reset the codes. Depending on your system, the vehicle may also need to relearn its idle and various operating parameters. It will do this on its own after a few minutes of run time, but you may need to sit in the vehicle and hold the throttle at an idle until the computer relearns the idle. The manufactures make sure that a power loss will not affect the systems in any significant manner to avoid problems caused by dead batteries, which happen frequently. If the problem is truly fixed, the light will stay off until the computer senses a new problem. If the problem is still present, the light will come back on after you drive the vehicle for a while. If you do your own mechanical work, the OBDII reader is worth having for diagonstic purposes, but it is not required to reset the check engine soon light. Either way you reset the computer, and you will have to drive the vehicle for a while to allow the computer to run its on board diagnostics.

If the DELTA PRESSURE FEEDBACK EXHAUST sensor was the cause of the light, it should reset itself after 2 or 3 complete ignition cycles. If you don't mind having to reset all the monitors you can simply remove a battery cable for a few seconds but that will also make you lose your clock or anything that has a memory that's defendant on constant battery voltage.

You can try disconnecting the battery for a couple of minutes and see if that will do the trick. Other wise you will need a code reader or a scan tool to clear the codes.

Either code 4000 or 1400 on 2002 ford ranger 4.0 ltr v6. the right code should equate to the egr valve. I have replaced the egr valve but check engine light comes on again after reset showing same code.


code p1400 is a DPF EGR sensor CIRCUIT LOW VOLTAGE detected. most likely is a problem with the wiring to the egr or dpfe sensor. the pinpoint tests for code p1400 instruct you to test all wiring before replaceing the egr or dpfe sensor

The DPFE sensor is usually not hard to change. There are 2 small rubber hoses that run from the EGR tube to it...

Replace DPFE sensor, reset engine fault codes. The Ford one is a good one and rockauto.com carries Airtex. Sometimes I hear that this change always need replace EGR valve to delet all codes. Test it.

Good luck.

How do you reset the service engine soon light?


If it is a service engine soon light, get the problem diagnosed and repaired and the light will go off as the computer will no longer detect a problem.
If it is an oil change needed light, read your manual and find the button to and instructions turn it off, most likely in or near a fuse box.

Service engine soon light


if it is for the EGR valve again, replace the valve and the DPFE sensor. Not sure what an EGR regulator is. Could be a bad hose going to the DPFE, or a clogged tube or EGR port also.

P0401. P0133, P1131- emmision test


Based on what the tech manuals say I would change the DPFE sensor for the EGR Valve, careful not to tear the special silicone rubber hoses that go to it from the exhaust, as a Ford dealer tech I saw these codes allot, and the DPFE sensor was almost always the issue or the hoses going to it.
