    It could be alot of things. Need to have the code or codes checked to see what is causing it to come on. After checking codes, it needs to be diagnosed to pinpoint the problem.

How do i reset the check engine light on a 91 cavalier


You can remove the codes (and turn off the check engine light) by simply removing the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Make sure the ignition key is off before you do.

Whatever fault that turned on the check engine light on, if it is still there, it will turn on the light again. Then you would want to retrieve the codes and see about repairing the fault. Post back if you need help on how to get the codes to flash out by the light.

Reset check engine light


To reset a check engine light you have two options. You can use an OBD II scanner(They can do this for you at most places like autozone, oriellys, napa for free. You just go in and ask them). The other option is to disconnect the battery for 1 minute and then reconnect. This should clear the light. This will clear the check engine light but only if the problem causing the check engine light is fixed, otherwise the system will detect the fault again and the light will come back on.

Reset check engine light


Check Engine Light can be reset by disconnecting the battery terminal and and putting it back again. Make sure you have the code for the radio before you disconnect the battery terminal as the radio can get locked. You can get the radio code from any dealer.
Another way to rest the check engine light is by using an error code checking meter. You will have to purchase one.
It is always better to first get it checked from a mechanic for the reason of the light to come on before you reset the light as it might be an indication of a serious engine issue.

Check engine light on, Mitsubishi lancer


To reset the computer, disconnect the battery for a couple minutes, then hook it back up again. This will not solve the problem if there is one. The check engine light comes on to let you know that there is a problem. If you take it to an auto parts store, they can read the trouble codes and reset the check engine light.

Oil maintenece light is on. Oil level is good. Could a clogged filter make this light go on?


This should only be indicating time for an oil change. Now, if the red, check engine light comes on, then you have an oil/engine problem.

Possibly the maintenance light wasn't reset when the last change was done. If you don't have the owners manual to check, I found a referenced method (below) to reset it through AMSOIL synthetic oil products. Good Luck

To reset Engine Oil light. Turn the ignition key to RUN with the engine off. Fully press and release the accelerator pedal three times within five seconds. If the Change Engine Oil light is flashing, the system is reset. The light will flash for up to 30 seconds or until the ignition is turned off. If the light comes on again and stays on for 30 seconds at the next ignition cycle, it did not reset. You will need to reset the system again.

1998 toyota 4runner reset check engine light


Hi. You can reset the check engine light by removing the blue 15 amp EFI fuse (fuse box under the hood). If you do this, and the check engine light is illuminated again, you will need to address the cause for the light to be on; you have a 'hard fault'; and a part may need replaced.
