    I did have code scanned and there were NO CODES PRESENT as I had said in the initial question

  • kbcarlson Oct 06, 2009

    Thank You....I will disconnect the ground cable as suggested. I was told that Honda has a special way to turn out the light on the instrument panel which should be in the owners manual that I don't have. The mechanic which used the code reader could not reset the light. Thank You again

The easiest way is to take the car to an autoparts store when you are out and about and have them use a scan tool to reset the check engine light. Most parts stores will do this at no charge. Hope this helped and best wishes.

    Yes sir and what I said was that they can reset the check engine light with the scan tool. I wasn't talking about getting the scan done again. If you don't want to go to the autoparts store then you can disconnect the negative battery cable and wait 30 minutes to reset the computer. I just find it easier to let them reset it with a scan tool, but that is your call. Best wishes.

How do I get the service engine soon light to go out


The "Service Engine Soon" comes on when the ECM receives information from the engines sensors that exceeds normal acceptable operating parameters. The ECM will store a code (or codes) indicating which system(s) are out of tolerance and light the "Service Engine Soon" lamp. The technician will read the codes, diagnose and repair the condition(s), and reset the "Service Engine Soon" lamp. The lamp does NOT go out on its own (in most cases), once repairs are made. There is a scan tool that is used to clear the stored codes that allows the lamp to go out. It is therefore possible that you may already have fixed the condition that set your light to on. Or not. The whole purpose of the lamp was to help avoid the kind of "hit and miss" repair methodology that you have employed so far. Many feel the need to try this as they fear the costs of a professional mechanic reading the codes and the cost of repairs. Fortunately, there are less costly options available. Many of the large auto parts chains will read the "Service Engine Soon" codes for you at no cost. They will tell you what codes are present and you can decide if you (or someone you know) can perform repairs or if you need a pro to check things out. They do NOT, normally, perform resets of the lamp as this has potential liability issues for them. If you need the lamp reset after repairs are made, you have two options; pay the pro, or buy a scan tool that has the ability to reset the light. Not all do. The cheaper units are only code READERS. Be careful when you buy. But if you watch for sales, you can usually get a low-cost scan tools that can read and reset codes for around $40.00. Good luck.

Service Emission System Light


#1 Always be suspicious of dealerships , they are in the business of doing repairs that are not necessarry.
#2 Loose intake hose "could" cause the problem , but only if the loose hose was after the mass air flow meter.
#3 most likely problem with your vehicle is a faulty oxygen sensor in the exhaust system , but could be as simple as a loose gas cap. Get somebody to scan the car for codes , some parts stores will do it for free. That will tell you what the error actually is.
#4 sometimes codes will reset if the problem is no longer present , sometimes not. On most vehicles , you can reset fault codes by simply disconecting the battery for a few minutes. If you do this and the light is then off , but comes on again after a few minutes , or even a few days , then there is a problem that needs to be repaired.

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

"Time for service" light comes on after the car


Your mechanic may have forgotten to reset the light. Also if the time for service light is your check engine light a fault code may be stored in the vehicles on board computer. Have the codes pulled to determine if a fault code is present or not. If there are non you can have the light reset, however if there is a fault code and you just reset it the light will keep coming on until the problem is corrected.

My Ford Explore 2003 has engine service soon light on. What shall I do with it?


Go to an autozone they can read the codes and reset the light. They do this as a free service. If there is a problem and you dont repair it the light will return. Sometimes the light can come on for no apparent reason (no code present) a loose gas cap can trigger the check engine light.
