What is year--make model? If the problem isn't fixed, the code will just come back. A code reader that can read and erase codes will work. also, You could take negative battery cable loose for several seconds, if you try it that way, it could cause other issues. The computer may to relearn engine running parameters. It could also go into security lock, hope not. It's generally not a good idea to take battery cable loose.

Whats the difference between a current code and a pending code?


Pending codes and current codes are basically the same. Pending codes are for a problem that is still indicated to be a problem,but hasn't been cleared. Current codes are codes that are indicated for the current drive cycle. Usually will both be the same code if problem still exists and hasn't been cleared without repair.

How do I reset the computer system on a 2006 Ford Explorer


Are you asking how to reset the computer or how to clear an error code/check engine light? Clearing a check engine light (which will also clear the error code) can be done with a code scanner. These are usually available for use at little or no cost at any larger auto parts store (they may even connect the scanner for you and record/clear the code). One word of caution, however: if you clear the code but don't repair the cause, the code and light will return after a brief amount of time. Now as for resetting the computer itself, not recommended that you try since error codes are stored in non-volatile memory. Disconnecting the battery's positive terminal for an hour or so may clear the check engine light, but, again, it will reappear and regenerate the error code unless the cause is fixed. Good luck.

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.

How long does it take for the codes to clear after a computer resets in a 2001 chevy blazer?


Once it is scanned, they should reset. They can reset sometimes when the battery is taken off. Once it is scanned, it should clear instantly.
