SOURCE: reset service engine soon light 2004 ford mustang

It is not recomended to disconnect the battery and turn the light switch or horn or anything else on in order to clear codes stored in memory because any settings stored in the computer may be lost too.Go to autozone and rent the scanner to do it yourself.It is very easy,just connect the scanner to the connector located below the dashboard, turn the ignition on but not the engine and follow the prompts then when it says: clear codes?hit yes or enter and that is it.This is the safest way to do it.

SOURCE: Ford Mustang service engine soon and check fuel cap lights are on

just went through this myself. first be sure there are no leaks incap as suggested. second, since computer system pressurizes fuel system as part of emissions, any possible leak, like in filler neck to tank, will trip the check engine. that fixed it for me - last summer. now, new problem showed up again. this time 2 different trouble codes: EGR valve and a pressure sensor. fixed the problem. a week ago, light back on. this time a no $ fix-loose vacumn hose. best advice like the other guys said is to get it scanned and start there.

SOURCE: I have a service engine

The service engine soon light is an indicator that something in your emissions control system is malfunctioning. It could be an oxygen sensor, spark plug, stopped up fuel filter, vacuum leak, or any number of other components. take ot to your locak Ford dealer and have it diagnosed by a professional. it will cost you less in the long run to have your dealer look at if you don't have the ability to do it yourself. I know many people who take their vehicle to "Joe" only to spend a fortune for someone to guess and finally go to the dealer and get it repaired for a couple of hundred bucks. JMHO.

The engine service soon light on., but already made the tune up, and changed the oil and filters.


first you will have to hook the vehicle up to a computer and get the exact codes for the reason the light is on...then after fixing the problem you will have to clear the codes using the same computer you used to read them.... doing a tune up and changing the oil and filters may not have been the original problem with your vehicle or is not the nly problem with the vehicle...you will have to hook it up to a diagnostic computer and pull the codes to get down to the problem

Ford Mustang service engine soon and check fuel cap lights are on


Check fuel cap light will not immediatly go out upon replacement of the fuel cap. Might take several days. You could go to a local autoparts store and have them read the trouble code (for check engine light) and reset it. If it was indeed the fuel cap the light should stay off after resetting it. Most autoparts stores do not charge a fee to do this.
