There is a reset button you need to push to reset light, it is under hood on fire wall. 1st carefully lift straight up on overflow tank or fill tank for antifreeze( it sets in a v bracket you may have to wiggle it or bump it ) directly behind it is the reset button push in.

if you have had a fault with the oxygen sensors for a long time it is possible it has fouled up the catalytic converter.

if the engine check light is the one for routine service and oil change and there is no other fault, it may be possible to reset it yourself.

1. turn ignition key to ACC or LOCK position

2. ensure the odometer is shown and not the trip meters

3. press and hold the trip meter reset button

4. while holding the reset button, turn the key to ON position

5. keep holding the reset button for at least 5 seconds. the odometer will read "000000"
and the light should go off.

if it does not go off then the system will need to be remapped, possible after a new catalytic converter.

try the reset sequence first though

The dealer has to "reflash" your 02 sensor light. On some Audi's, the dealer has to reset the O2 code first and if it comes on again, then they will need to replace the cat convertors.

Depending on the engine it will have between 4 and 2.

If you had a straight 4 or 6 engine then there would be only 2, one on the exhaust manifold or exhaust pipe and then one just after the catalytic converter.

If you have a "V" engine (V8, V6) then you have an oxygen sensor on each exhaust manifold and will have a catalytic converter for each bank of the V. There will also be an oxygen sensor downstream of each converter as well. In this case there would be 4 oxygen sensors.

The check engine light stays on even after I was told the oxygen sensor needed to be replaced on my 1991 Buick Park Avenue, what else could be the problem?


After repairs are made you must locate a small box in the middle of the speedometer cable under the dashboard and, press a button inside a tiny hole in that box with a small screwdriver this resets the light as, the light comes on only because so many miles have been driven

O2 Sensors


Autozone oxygen sensors do not function properly in Toyota vehicles. Just had a Tacoma yesterday with the same issue. New sensors, runs poor, check engine light on. Toyota sensors fixed it right now.

OXS Dash light


There is a counter installed in the speedo cable. Open the hood and look below the coolant resevoir, there should be a black box that the speedo cable goes through. Press the reset button on the box and the light should go off.
