If the problem is truly fixed the light will go out after a # of miles and on off cycles. anyone that can read the codes can reset them, but laws some places do not permit.

SOURCE: does the check engine light reset itself once the

If you are a DIY'er you can get a OBDII scan tool that connects to your laptop that can tell you the error code and allow you to reset your check engine light. This will save you $80 each time over going to a mechanic for a diagnostic. They are easy to use and will help you know what the issues are if you do have to go to a mechanic.

Or you can try disconnecting your vehicles negative battery lead for 5 minutes. That should clear the code. if you check engine light comes back on after several days, you still have a problem

Which fuse do you take out to reset your check engine light on a Chrysler Town and Country?


Instructions
    • 1

      Let the light reset itself. When the engine trouble has been fixed, a Chrysler engine resets the "Check Engine" light automatically after 40 successful runs. If it doesn't reset, the problem likely still exists.

    • 2

      Force the computer into "Successful Run" mode. Start the Chrysler and drive forward a few feet, then put it in reverse and go backward a few feet. Do this three times and shut the engine off. Crank it again to see if the light has been on.

      Disconnect the battery for several minutes. This resets everything in the vehicle, including the clock and radio settings. Reapply the radio settings and adjust the time when the battery is reconnected.

      Use a diagnostic scanner to clear the codes. Connect the scanner to the test port, also called the ALDL (Assembly Lineicon1.png Diagnostic Link) usually located under the dash (see Resources section). Turn the engine "On" and follow the prompts on the scanner to pull the engine codes. Select the option to clear them.

On my 2005 Tahoe how do I reset the check engine light?


the check engine light is indicating a problem with a control system. The resulting codes need to be fixed, then the light will be reset or go out by itself. If the problem resolves itself, or is intermittent, the light may go out by itself

Truck runnin rough when first started but then runs fine but service eng soon light flashed 12 times before stayin on


Your going to have to get the truck scanned for DTC codes. The flashing service engine light is there to let you know that the ECM has detected an issue with the trucks performance and there is a Diagnostic Trouble Code. Go to Auto Zone to have the truck scanned, they scan free of charge and can give you the step by step instruction to address the problem. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help

Reset service engine soon light 1999 range rover HSE 4.6


I have a 1999 Rover with the 4.6. I bought a code reader for $150 and erased the code. Its paid for itself a hundred times. Did you fix the reason the service engine light problem first? Some auto part stores will read for you. I don't know if they will reset it for you at the same time. If problems not fixed the light will reappear in a very short period of time. Let me know if I can answer anything else. Good luck

2005 sti engine light on dash


I'm not sure what the car does violently, as u seem to have had a word edited out, but if the light is on, u need to have it checked out (especially if it's not performing properly). Most auto parts stores will read engine codes at no charge. Bring it in asap, have them explain (and write down the #'s) what the codes mean, and what they recommend u do to fix the problem. U can post the info here if u need further assistance.
