Disconnect the battery for a few minutes. This should clear the code. Unless you have fixed the problem that set the code it will come on again.

I second what eitan says. If you had the CEL scanned you should just of had it reset by the console. Disconnecting battery doesn't always reset the CEL, it usually just screws your radio stations up.

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.

How do you turn off engine light on a 2009 Mercury Marquis


The Check Engine light must be reset using an OBD-II code reader. Dealers have them as do repair shops. Places like AutoZone will read the codes for you, but normally will not reset the Check Engine light due to possible liability issues. You can purchase a code reader at these places to do this yourself. Make sure you get one that can read and reset the engine light. The very cheap ones cannot reset the Check Engine light.

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

Check engine light on, Mitsubishi lancer


To reset the computer, disconnect the battery for a couple minutes, then hook it back up again. This will not solve the problem if there is one. The check engine light comes on to let you know that there is a problem. If you take it to an auto parts store, they can read the trouble codes and reset the check engine light.

The check engine light is on my 1995 Saab 900s. I can not find a techician with the correct scanner.How can I turn off the light?


There are three ways to reset a check engine light.

1. Disconnect the battery, wait approximately 30 minutes, reconnect the battery. This resets the cars computer which also reset the check engine light. On newer OBD (on-board diagnostic) compliant vehicles this usually does not work. See step 2.

2. Reset using an OBD II reader. When you hook an OBD II code reader up to your vehicle, you can reset the computer using the code reader.

3. Fixing the problem. Generally the check engine light comes on for a reason. Usually it is emission related (sensors, gas cap) or electrical (faulty wiring). In this case the way to reset the check engine light is to fix the problem

How to reset check engine light?


Go to your local O'Rielly's or Autozone. They will tell you the code and reset it for free. Otherwise take the negative battery cable loose for about 10 min. This will clear the ECM, but you won't know what tripped the light! Best Wishes, TJ
