RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD


THIS IS HOW YOU RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD. 1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done. What a scam Honda has with the BS Check Engine Light.

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.

Turn key just a clicking noise. Lights come on. Check engine light on


A weak battery will make the lights come on & energize the solenoid for the starter, but the battery is too weak to make the starter motor turn. Checking the battery would be first, the solenoid second.

What will make my 1998 ford explorer turn over but not start. no fire in coil. we changed the coil and still no fire. checked all fuses, their fine. checked fuel pump- we can hear it kick on when key is...


Put key in IGN and turn to run. All warning lights should come on, including the check engine light. Then turn the key to crank. As the engine cranks and the crankshaft position sensor detects rotation and reports it to the PCM, the check engine light should go out. If it stays on, the PCM isn't getting input from the crankshaft postion sensor. Check the connection or replace the sensor.

Won't start unless check engine light is on


I would suggest having someone check the circuits at the key switch.
The switch could be going bad.
The check engine and other warning lights must come on as a self-test when you turn the key on, then go off once the engine starts.

Engine turns over but will not start.


Hi there:

When the light comes on, one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) are stored in the engine control module. These DTCs remain even if the light goes out. To address a Check Engine Light problem, the DTCs are retrieved and the appropriate troubleshooting information is followed in order to determine the problem.


Just scanned the computer and send us code number find it.

Hope helps.

My car smog test said my car failed the MIL/check engine light due to warning lamp failure means what?


Basically, it means the check engine warning light didn't light up when it should. Perhaps a burned out bulb?

Every vehicle has a "system check" that happens every time you turn the key on. Most people don't know it is happening right before thier eyes. So if you go out and get into your car in the morning and you turn the key to "on" but then don't go the rest of the way to the "start" position there are several warning lights on. The check engine light is one of them. All the system is doing is running power through the light to show it is functional.

It doesn't mean there is something wrong, it is just showing that an error "can" be displayed if an error existed by the light being on. Try it next time. Turn the key on but dont start the engine. If your check engine light is off, then that is what they stated in the report.

Change engine oil light is on i tried turning key to acc pump gas three times turned key off but light still comes back on


that light is a maintenance reminder light. Check with who ever changes your oil, and have them reset it.

Usually the turn key/pump 3 times works for the check engine light. Smart to try that though.
