Disconnecting battery (both terminals) and wait 10 minutes. With some like VW, you're supposed to leave the key in the ignition so you may have to try it with and without key in the ignition.
There are several variations of this method. So check the internet and you may need to try several but it should work. Going to the dealer is going to cost you well into the hundreds of dollars.

When you disconnect the battery, disconnect the negative cable.

Hope this helps.

Tryobi disconnecting the battery and leaving it for a few minutes, then try reconnect it and try again. if this doesn't work you may have inadvertently De programmed the key. Try using the spare keys, if this fails you will probably need to take it to a dealer to have it re programmed.

2001 pontiac bonneville check engine light won;t go off


Once the CEL has set, it remains lit until the problem that set it is resolved and the light reset using a OBD Scantool. Certain intermittent issue can cause the light to go on and off on occasion, but most faults, once set, remain until reset by the scantool. If the fault is still present after resetting the light, it will set again as soon as the system detects the failure.

Mike, Check for diagnostic codes. Check fuses/relays,wires/plugs for pinched,damage or corrosion. Could be a lot of things like distributor armature, cap, rotor, stator, ICM, coil,spark plugs,wires, make sure ground is good to distributor.

Check engine light for oil Change required


Each vehicle model will have instructions in the manual to reset the check engine light when oil change service is performed. You can contact your dealer by phone and ask for the service manager to get instructions to reset the light or refer to your user manual or look up your manual on the Internet and view the instructions there.

You have no communication with your ECM, it could be the ECM itself or a Can-bus wiring problem. You will have to check continuity on your CAN wiring from the ECM to the gateway, you will need wiring diagram. Should be able to find those on the internet or some parts stores offer them free

I Purchased an OBD2 meter. I connect meter to


You have a generic code reader
everyone needs one

You can not how ever get MFG Codes
only those starting with PO

You should have instructions with it
You usually only have 2 buttons

One button cycles thru data & the
other clears or resets the MIL Lamps

Turn key on & write down any codes,
as you push the left button ,I believe
to cycle thru them

Then start engine & see if they are still there
& the same

Then use the other button to clear them
& road test,to see what comes back

The manual won't help much

Give me the codes or look on the
internet. Just put OBD2 & the code #
in search engine.
