Question about 1996 Saab 900
My check engine light stays on even though everything is working fine. Is there any way to turn it off?
You can reset the Check Engine light by using an OBDII diagnostics utility machine. However, I would highly recommend fixing the problem that is causing the situation, as you will have to continually reset the light in this manner every so often until the problem is corrected. Besides the obvious "tighten the gas tank cap fully" trick, usually, when a car seems to be running fine but the Check Engine light is on, it's one of the cars exhaust sensors. Common culprits are: The O2 sensor in the exhaust system, or a deficient catalytic converter. Neither one is particularly good news, as both parts tend to be a bit pricey. Keep in mind that your car will not pass its next inspection if the catalytic converter is bad. Good luck!
