Don't panic!! LOL Just take the vehicle to an autoparts store and have them use a scan tool to retrieve any fault code(s) stored in the computer. Most parts stores will do the scan at no charge. The code or codes will help note any problems or potential problems that the computer has identified. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

    By the way, if the scan shows that there are no fault codes, they can re-set the check engine light so that it doesn't worry the **** out of you! lol Hope this helped and good luck to you.

Mine does that sometimes too. My brother-in-law is a mechanic and he said that pressure in the gas tank can cause that because there is a sensor for it. I just take off the gas cap and let off the pressure and put it back on. The light goes out. It does it more in the summer. Weird, I know, but try it before you spend a bunch of money.

Crappy gas. Try not to get gas while the gas truck is fulling the underground tanks. the trash goes right to the pump you're pumping from. To hopefully solve your problem, disconnect the positive side of your battery for about 10 minutes to reset the computer. If there is no light when you reconnect it, you're good to go. if the light is still on, see if your air filter is dirty. Check your oil. An engine can blow out for lack of fluid? Check your transmission fluid, also. To do this, turn your Tracker on and let it warm up. Hold the brakes while sliding the shifter through all of the positions. Do this twice this check the tranmission dipstick while the car is still running. If it's low add more through the same tube.
If there is no true issue the battery disconnect will solve the problem. Let me know how it turns out.

Reset waring light check engine 95 geo tracker

Most warning lights are on for a reason and should be checked out by a mechanic, Even after the light is reset, The problem not being corrected will issue the light to come on again, Easiest way I know to reset lights are to remove the positive terminal on the battery. Leave off for 10-20 Seconds and reattach, The bolt should be an 8mm I think.

Best Wishes and Good luck!!

Reset check engine light on 1995 geo tracker

I had the very same problem with my 94 tracker and it turned out to be something simple. My check engine light had popped on after it had hit 100,000. I went through all of the suggestions that people had suggested (unplug battery......etc) and still to no avail. Searching the internet, I came across a website called and there, this guy was able to help me with my problem. It turned out to be a maintenance switch that kicks on every 50,000 miles. This switch is like a secret that the auto manufactures use to ploy owners of their cars to bring to the dealer and then rack up the dollars in unnecessary "repairs". The switch is located under the dash and can be hidden anywhere. From the assistance of the guy on the forum, he was able to send me photos of this damn switch and possible locations where it may be mounted. I found mine in about 5 minutes, where it was attached to the steering column. It's a tiny switch, that you slide up or down, depending on what position it is in upon finding it. If it's up, then slide it in the down position and visa versa. Once you do this, the check engine light will go off. Make sure you do not have the car running and you can even unhook one of the battery posts, just to make sure you don't hit anything while rooting around under the dash. Good luck!
