SOURCE: dodge stratus check engine light

Try disconnecting the battery for a few seconds, unless you have some anti-theft system on your vehicle, that may get messed up by the disconnect. If you do, then I;d wait it out, I think it's about 50 starts & it should disappear on it's own, if that doesn't work, zip in to dealer & see what they'd charge to reset it for you.

Check engine light is on. No obvious issues at all. Car is running great. what say ye? 2008 dodge nitro.

you'll need to pull the codes. There are hundreds of possibilities. With the code(s) you will be able to identify the problem a lot easier. Call around, some parts stores will pull codes for free. Shops will usually have a fee that includes the diagnostic time to figure out the cause of the code and determine the correct repair.

Some common things are loose gas cap or O2 sensor issues but like I said it could be any number of a hundred or so different things.

2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off had oil changed did not go out

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.

05 explorer gas cap warning light

Your gas cap could be losing pressure, bad seals. Most of the time the light goes on cuz no one closes the gas cap all the way, by rotating it right till they hear 3 clicks.

A light still on after 3 clicks, go to autozone, by a new cheap gas cap - under $20
