On most cars you can disconnect the ground cable on the battery for 15 minutes and reconnect to reset the light, but you'll also have to reset the clock, radio etc. Best way is stop by your local auto parts store and the will read your codes (for free!) nd not only reset the light for you but also tell you why it came on in the first place.

Service engine soon light on


The brain is telling you it thinks the engine is due for a service. Mostly this can be ignored if the engine has been serviced but it is reckoned some management systems reduce the power output of the engine if the brain continues thinking it needs a service.

While some service indicators can be reset fairly easily, I seem to remember the BMW needs dedicated diagnostic equipment to reset it.

Engine management light on car runs fine


Service engine soon or check engine light? Engine light needs scanned for codes. Service engine soon is for oil changes and such. To get rid of service lights, turn the key on, press the gas pedal three times within five seconds. The light will flash. turn the key off. it's reset. At least check or change the oil and filter though.

I reset engine management light and within minutes light comes on


If the check engine light or MIL - malfunction indicator light , or service engine soon light is on , it means there is a problem with the engine management system ! an it means it set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in the PCM / ECM - electronic control module ! You can try resetting all you like but it's not going to stay out ! You need to have the vehicle scanned for codes an fix it ! Check Engine Code Scanner Advance Auto Parts

My service engine light just came on and i'm wondering what that might mean and what i need to do about it now.


service due light or engine management light??
service light should be a spanner symbol engine light should be amber -yellow colour and looks like a gearbox.
service light.check if your vehicle is due a service if so book it in with your main dealer for a service and they will reset the warning indicator ,or if you know someone local who maintains your car they can reset the service light by holding in the reset trip button whilst turning ignition to pre start position on the display it should count down from ten -0 then reset itself and the light should go out.
management light
this can only be looked at by a suzuki main dealer where they have the correct diagnostic equipment .
dont worry to much if the car feels and drives ok its probably picked up a small fault in the ecu and will be cleared with the diagnostic check .

Engine maintainance light on


do you mean the service light or the mil (engine management light? ) you can get a obd2 code reader if its the mil light but be sure to get one that is for VAG codes, if its a vw or one the reads eobd and *** codes for lexus (ebay from £23 )
if its a service light you need not worry too much but you can also get the service reset tool on line
