Question about 2002 Audi A4

2 Answers

Engine management warning light - can this be reset (ie turned off) without going to dealers? It comes on when somthing happens with the engine managmeent that is not 100%, but this does not happen all the time. So for one minor misdemeaner it stays on 'till it goes in for a service. The managment report only shows that there was a minor problem at some point, so I just need to know how to reset!

Go to a local parts store and use their handheld diagnostic device (usually free). Hook it up to your car (above the clutch petal). It should give you a reading and you can erase it which will turn of the light in the dash.

How do I turn off engine management warning light without taking it to a garage ?


Normally you would remove the fuse supplying power to the car's computer, for 30 seconds. However the light will just come back on again, because the computer is sensing a problem and trying to tell you.

Is it possible to rest the engine management light on a 2004 Dodge Dakota without visiting the dealers. I believe it has come on due to filling with premium grade gas. Thanks in advance.


Most auto parts stores offer free reading and resets of engine lights. Just call a local parts store and see is they have the capabilities and they will tell you what turned the light on. Premium gas should not cause a check engine light but not tightening the gas cap enough will.

My service engine light just came on and i'm wondering what that might mean and what i need to do about it now.


service due light or engine management light??
service light should be a spanner symbol engine light should be amber -yellow colour and looks like a gearbox.
service light.check if your vehicle is due a service if so book it in with your main dealer for a service and they will reset the warning indicator ,or if you know someone local who maintains your car they can reset the service light by holding in the reset trip button whilst turning ignition to pre start position on the display it should count down from ten -0 then reset itself and the light should go out.
management light
this can only be looked at by a suzuki main dealer where they have the correct diagnostic equipment .
dont worry to much if the car feels and drives ok its probably picked up a small fault in the ecu and will be cleared with the diagnostic check .

What causes the engine management warning light to come on


The CHECK ENGINE warning lamp comes on when the engine ECU recieves incorrect data . When it gets information outside of its perameters, it suspects a fault and illuminates the warning lamp.
To see what fault is shown you will need to use an OBD 2 code reader or go to the local Kia dealer to plug in and check.
If you do not notice any problems with the engine, then its possible it may only be a GLICH in the system, either way , test , check and erase the fault.
Hope this helps
