Your local auto parts store can reset your computer with an obd-ll scanner(as long as check engine light is on)..or you could simply disconnect the battery for about 15 min. This will not mask mechanical issue with your catalytic converter or 02 sensors whichever case may be..It will only clear the code and give your car's computer a chance to re-run its emmision tests..Check engine light will be back if an emmisions part has failed or needs repair..All this to the best of my knowledge with the information provided.....Hope this helps and best of luck with your automotive endeavors.

btw, the autostore(advance auto, autozone, etc...) will normally give you a printout of your cars obd-ll codes(which cause check engine light to illuminate) if you ask. They may even offer up some guidance but keep in mind they"re trying to sell parts.

My SERVICE ENGINE SOON light came onAGAIN!


Disconnecting the battery should reset it but I would bet that the light will come back on. I would have a auto parts store read the error code for you. They can also reset it. There are two o2 sensors on this car one on the manifold and one down stream from the converter. If you are getting an o2 error code it could also be the converter.

What was the exact code? The O2 sensor after the Catalytic Converter, or Rear O2 Sensor, could be faulty which would cause the computer to think the Catalytic Converter is not working efficiently. The code can be reset at the auto parts store with the same code reader they used the first time. P0420 is the most commonly thrown OBDII code pertaining to catalytic converter efficiency below threshold. I would replace the O2 sensor after the Catalytic Converter and reset the computer to see if the code comes back. If it comes back you may have a bad catalytic converter, exhaust leak, damaged exhaust pipes, damaged O2 sensor wiring/connectors, plugged catalytic converter, etc.

There is no code to do this that I am aware of. This is controlled in the PCM/ECM module and must be connected in a specific way and a Code Machine is needed to rest the system if the bag has been deployed or disconnected from the system.

I got my codes pulled at a local auto parts store and it said both O2 sensors were bad. Replaced them reset the computer and the light came back on. It gave the same code with the same problem.


The catyiletic converter are getting plugged, most likely. When converters start to plug it raises the exhaust temp and causes the O2 sensor to trip a code. I had this happen with a Dodge Intrepid and Suburban.

I have an engine management light come on - tested - came up with a code PO410 - what is the next step?


P0410 is the error code for Secondary Air Injection System Malfunction
The secondary air injection pump pumps air into the exhaust to help heat the catalytic converter at cold start. This lowers the emissions at an otherwise high emission time.
A malfunction means that computer has registered either a pump failure (common on some models), fuse blown, or improper catalytic converter function.
Check your fuses. Whether you find a bad fuse or not have the codes reset. Some auto Zones can read and reset the codes. If the error comes back you may want to consider having the exhaust system checked.Problems with the catalytic converter\converters can have a large impact on your MPG.

Note: the catalytic converter is located at after a little bit of beginning in Exhaust pipe.
