Un-hook one cable from your battery and leave it off for at least 20 minutes then hook it back up. That re-boots the computer. If the light comes back on then you have an actual problem not just a spurious code set. Take it to Advance Auto parts and they will read out the computer error codes for you and that will tell you what the computer thinks the problem is. Of course you may have to re-set your radio stations.

How do I clear a service emissions message on a 2005 Mercury Mariner with a 3.0L engine. I have performed the required maintenance procedures at both 30,9000090's and 60,000miles. Still have message.


Warning Messages The warning messages can interrupt the display until cleared or reset by the driver. The warning messages are either single cycle, non-resettable, or repetitive warning messages.
The single cycle warning messages display once whenever the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or a fault occurs in a system, and can be cleared by pressing the RESET button. The single cycle warning messages are:
  • liftgate ajar
  • liftgate glass ajar
  • service emission system
  • low brake fluid
  • service brake system
  • check left headlamp
  • check right headlamp
  • check left turn lamps
  • check right turn lamps
  • check left high beam
  • check right high beam
  • check brake lamps
  • check parking lamps
  • washer fluid low
  • check fuel cap
  • change oil soon
  • change oil now
  • low fuel

I had blinking vsc code and check engin light on. Took it to a dealer who ran diagnotic. Dealer said gas cap has failed and new charcoal canister is needed. Since the high cost of latter, I simply...


Don't worry about that light, if performance and fuel economy is good. The light is still a fault from the evaporative canister.. It should not affect performance. Just make sure the fuel cap is snug. Just perform The ODBII scan periodically to catch any future problems. The vacume diaphragm for canister purge should be unplugged and the vacume hose plugged. This will avoid engine from sucking fuel into the engine due to a ruptured diaphragm in the canister

Why is "check fuel cap" warning showing on my 2006 Pilot when the cap is secure?


Hi there:
If the gas cap wasn't on properly then the change in pressure would set off a sensor. Put the cap on right or replace it and if the check engine goes away after a few days that was your problem.



You replaced the cap and it will take quite a few driving cycles for the light to go off if that was the culprit. Try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and that might reset the light.


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Reset warning engine light


you can reset the engine warning light by taking the earth lead off the battery and connecting it to the positive lead, then switch on the ignition,. Reconnect the earth lead to the battery and the light will have been reset. What you are doing is discharging the diagnostic chip to earth, which is exactly what the jaguar main dealer equipment does.This works on all cars.
PLEASE NOTE, make sure you disconnect the earth lead from the battery .

How to turn off maintenance req'd warning lights on dash


this light 7407fc2.jpg correct? to troubleshoot this light, the car can be scanned with any OBD2 scanner/code reader. after it has been scanned, the scanner will have an option to erase all codes. once they have been erased the light will go off.

the only other way to make the light go off is to disconnect the battery for 15-30min. this will reset the engine ECU, causing the light to go off but also will erase any codes that may be stored in the EC
U. if the ecu resets and car is started and detects the same problem the light will come back on.

Check to make sure that the fuel tank cap is on tight.
When the fuel tank cap is loose:
The electronic engine control system warning light comes on as a temporary malfunction.
