If you have the problem resolved try disconnecting the battery for 3 minutes then reconnect, if it still stays on then you will need to go to Auto-zone to have them run diagnostic test for the truck once you have pulled the codes then select clear codes then reset the computer with scan tool. This is a free service from AutoZone. Be sure to write down all trouble codes so that it can be looked at later if it does not work. Then if it does not stay off post the trouble codes here so it can be diagnosed.

Hi,
easiest way to reset the stored codes is to disconnect the battery for 15-20 minutes... both terminals... just in case...fire it back up and it should be good to go with no warning lights on unless there is a defeinate problem

Where is the reset button on a 1997 chevy suburband


Reset for what? If the check engine light is on, you have to buy or borrow a scan tool, and reset it that way, or you can disconnect the battery for 1-2 minutes, and reconnect it.

1998 Chevy Lumina has check Engine light on and code says egr valve which has been replaced now what


Check engine lights sometimes do not go off right away. To reset the check engine light, disconnect your battery, turn the lights on, on your car ( to drain any power left in the computer systems), reconnect the battery and the light should be off. If it comes back on, the EGR valve was not installed properly.

My engine light is on in my 2007 Chevy Suburban LT. I changed the fuel cap, but the light remains on. Is there a reset mode for this problem, or do I need to put my truck in a repair shop.


If you had the check engine light checked by computer and it came back as a loose fuel cap, it could also be the egr valve or a small vacuum leak. I would first go to autozone where they can check it for free and most of the time reset the light for you at no charge. They will also explain how important the code is and you can purchase the replacement part right there. Sometimes they can show you where the part is that needs replaces. I hope this helps.
