You can get the check engine light to turn off by unplugging your battery for about 10 minutes tthen plugging it back in or getting a scanner and erasing the trouble code. Hope this helps.

Check engine lite is on but will not give me any codes. the lite just stays on


Check engine lite
Ron, there should be a code if engine light is on,you can have a code stored without a engine light, but not possible to have a engine light without a code.
I am pretty sure, what ever code reader or scan tool you are using, is either faulty or not up to the job. Try a quality scanner, there will be a code.

2004 trailblazer, after getting gas,check gages lite came on, then turned off. truck running rough and after going over 40 miles per hr, service engine lite flashes.


Sounds like there was water in the gas, which would make the engine run rough, service engine lite might go on. Try adding an octaine additive to gas.

Lost power to turn sig airbag light and heater control.I pluged trailer lightes in to my tow package


The trailer might have a bad ground. My camper does the same thing to my truck. Try directly connecting the trailer ground to the frame of your vehicle. This might solve the problem as it did for me.

The ABS lite, No Trac Lite and Service engine lite keep coming on


When the Service engine soon, ABS and TRAC lights are turned on at the same time the computer control units for the engine and the ABS/TRAC systems has sensed a fault in the electronic controls of the engine and/or the emission system and the ABS and Traction Control system (part of the ABS system). When this happens you will seldom feel the car engine run any different or the car drive any different. There are about 200 possible faults that turn the Check Engine light on, the fault in your car is likely a part called the VSS sensor to know for sure what the problem is you must have the system tested; Kragen and Autozone parts stores do this testing for free

I want to turn the oil lite off and service engine lite


You need to reset the oil lite with an oil change or add oil. As for the check engine lite being on you need to read the codes and see why it is on then the repair facility will reset the lite. They come on for a reason.

Fuel pump does not engage until check engine lite comes on


i would definately hook up a "scanner" or have someone who has one hook it up and check for "codes". normally the check engine light should ALWAYS come on with the key in on position.the fact that it doesnt could mean the engine computer(PCM) is not communicating with the rest of the vehicle sensors or the pcm itself could be bad. but first check for codes before u just start buying/changing expensive parts.

Check engine lite is on. how can I turn it off?


You will need an OBD (onboard diagnostics) handset to read and or reset the codes. It would be good to know why the lamp came on to aviod and break downs possible in your future. They are available in any automotive store or even the auto section of many major Dept. stores. they generally include a code book or sheet to decode the reason for the light coming on. you may not be able to reset the light with out resolving the issue causing it to come on.

The check engine light is on.


Sometimes disconnecting the battery for a few minutes will reset the check engine light. Make sure you have the correct radio code before doing this or your radio will not work after disconnecting the battery.

Check engine lite


Your vehicle’s computer system has self-testing capability. When the computer senses that there is a problem with one of the components or sensors it stores the correspondent trouble code(s) in its memory and lights up the "Check Engine" or "Service Engine Soon" light to tell you that there is a problem and you should have the car diagnosed and repaired. First step is to find out what code turned the light on.

Check engine light ?


sometimes when the gas cap gets left off, it sets a code and turns on the check engine light. if the problem returns, it very well could be the egr valve....they tend to have a build up of carbon in the valve and can stick open.this problem can cause a rough idle, hesitation and stalling. you can remove the valve and use a screwdriver , with a torx bit i think, and turn the inside of the valve to break up the carbon deposits...should fix it, but with no code its hard to tell exactly what the problem is.
