Do you know if the plugs were changed, a bad or broken plug will also cause rough idle and slow acceleration?

SOURCE: Service engine soon light is flashing

When the light comes on without flashing, it just means an emissions problem, when it starts to flash it has become more serious. I suspect that there was an error putting the plugs and or wires. That computer can determine if there is a misfire and it will put out a P040X, code where X represents which cylinder is the problem. This will help you not have to take each one apart. If there are more than one, check each number.

Ex. P0401 means there is misfire on cylinder number 1

P0400 is a random misfire detected.

If you take it to an Advance or Autozone they will usually scan if for free.

By the way, if you used cheap plugs instead of platinum plugs that could do it too.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: How do I turn off the 2006 chevy silverado check engine light. It had a bad 02 sensor and I am replacing it today. I need to get the truck inspected today also so I need to know how to shut it off MYS

Simply disconnect your battery, turn on the headlight switch for about five to ten minutes, and re-connect the battery. This is pretty simple, but will likely result in you losing your radio presets and perhaps some other small things like that. The code (i.e. CEL / SES light) will usually go away after a certain number of driving cycles, perhaps a few days. You can choose to wait it out or follow one of these methods. if the problem is fixed ! good-day !

You have to reset the check engine light. It will erase all the bad codes that you have fixed. To do this, you have to remove the positive battery cable for a minute or so and reconnect. It should clear the check engine light..

The check engine light has come on for our 2006 Chevy Silverado Z71. Checked battery connection. No other problems noticeable.


Go to your local autozone where they can hook up their scan tool for no cost to you. Be sure to write down the codes and definitions of the codes and repost if you don't know where to go from there. Also, I don't recommend replacing parts just because the guy at autozone tells you that's what you need (ie, they will tell you to replace oxygen sensors if an o2 sensor code comes up).

1997 Chevy Silverado problem


hi, ok I'm sure you tried alot of solutions, I think the ECU has governed the engine must have sensed a previous problem or its just a malfunction from a sensor, important sensor to check is the 'engine knock sensor' try disconnecting and reconnecting it or test with multimeter and compare all readings with a new engine knock sensor or disconnect and reconnect battery, the other way might be to reset the engine managment system, this however I dont know but your dealer can do this for you.
