Engine management light reset


The car is trying to tell you something - limp mode is there to protect the engine if a serious problem is detected. Stop driving it and get someone out to scan the codes and diagnose this.

How to turn off check engine light on 1987 AUDI 5000?


This is on a 1987 audi 5000s. The light that comes on is an engine with a lightning bolt through it. When this comes on the car loses power, have to turn off and restart. That will work for a short distance and the light back on again. I just got the car about a month ago for my 16 yr. son's first car. If there is anything you can do I appreciate it. Thank you.
Open the driver's door of the PT Cruiser and kneel down to locate the 16-point data link connector (DLC) under the dash. It sits up under the dash to the left of the brake pedal on earlier model Cruisers. Later models moved the connector slightly to the right, closer to the steering wheel column, but still under the dash.

  • 2 Plug the pocket scanner plug into the DLC. Because of its unique shape, there is only one way to plug any connectors onto the DLC, making it foolproof.
  • 3 Place the key into the ignition and turn it two clicks forward to the "II" position. This position provides accessory power and illuminates the instrument cluster without the engine running. It also provides accessory power to the pocket scanner.
  • 4 Read the onscreen menu of the pocket scanner. The scanners are easy to use, but if necessary, read the manual provided with the scanner to navigate through the menu. Many modern pocket scanners are equipped with "Erase" buttons -- in that case, press erase to reset the code. Other models may have "Enter" or "Scroll" button(s) to navigate through a few different options (one of the options being the erase codes option).
  • 5 Erase the code(s) with the scanner and start the engine of the Cruiser. Determine if the service light is out. If not, repeat the procedure. If the light is still on, it means there is a "hard code" that must be read (with the scanner under "Read Codes" option) and properly repaired.

    Reduced engine power


    hi there my name is don i will try to help you on this
    when your reduced engine light comes on that means there is a active fault code in one of the sensors that is cusing this
    you will have to get it scanned or retreive the codes from the dash

    once you shut it off and turn it back on it temporarly resets until the diagnostics go through it again and it will reduce the power to the engine
    it could be something simple like a gas cap or tire pressure but you will have to get it scanned to find out
    thanks

    Gas Light comes on


    Hi,

    The amount of mile that you can drive after your gas light comes on differs from car to car. Most cars have around 2 gallons in the reserve tank. Generally you should be able to go 50 miles after the gas light comes on, but that's pushing it. Of course sometimes you can go much more, but that depends on the type of driving you are doing (city or highway, is it a flat road & the condition of your car).

    Sediments sink to the bottom of the gas tank & I don't like the thought that these get sucked into my engine, I think you would like to avoid as much as possible replacing your cars engine.

    Calculate the size of your reserve tank

    1) Read the car manual.
    2) The moment your light comes on, fill the tank to the very top, now subtract the number of gallons you filled from the size of your gas tank, and you have the size of your reserve tank.


    If you like adventures, and you know your car mpg, the moment the light comes on, bring your trip meter to zero, & drive the car till it comes to a stop. Now you know both the estimated miles you can go on your reserve tank & you can calculate its size. Make sure you have a can of gas in your trunk, to fill up after the car stops. This is the least recommended solution.

    I don't recommend pushing it beyond 50 miles after the gas light comes on.

    All the best.
