It is located on the driver's side, under the edge of the dash within 6" of the center of the steering column left or right.

Blazer service engine soon light reset


If it is an early blazer, pre 1996 and has the OBD I system, you can reset the computer by removing the positive battery cable and touching it to metal or 10 seconds to ground the system. Then hook it back to the battery and if the light comes back on then you need to jump the "A" and "B" terminals to read the code. If your blazer is 1996 or newer then you will have the OBD II system and will need a scan tool to reset the light.

Flashing check engine light on 1997 Monte Carlo


If the CHECK ENGINE light come on, the PCM (computer car) have stored a fault code there; I suggest scanned this and note what fault code is there. Sometimes Autozone or AutoShop make this reader with OBD tools for free.

Keep in touch.

if you can get your hands on an OBD II diagnostic tool you can plug it in under the dash on driver side and get the code or codes causing the light to come on, autozone will test it for free, once you have the code and know the issue you can fix it and the light will go off, you can also erase the codes wit the same tool but if you don't fix issue light will come on again

When the Check Engine Soon Light comes on , your first instinct is to pull over and check out the situation. This is not necessary. This is the vehicles way of letting you know at its earliest stage that an error has occurred. No need to panic. If you have been driving with that all annoying light on, remember this : Your gas mileage will improve if the necessary repairs are made.
LOOKING FOR CODE INFORMATION GO HERE : DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES




The first thing to do when your "Check Engine Soon" light comes on is to determine the immediate cause. Consider if the vehicle is still performing as usual or if a loss of performance is noticeable. Generally a constant illuminated light without loss of performance points to an emissions related issue( this won't leave you stranded). When the light flashes, this indicates a serious engine failure condition and will require immediate attention. You may wish to take your vehicle to a local shop and have Computer Diagnostics performed. Usually costs under $100.00.


Generally all vehicles from 1996 and up have an OBD II computer. The Major problem when it comes to OBD II is that you can no longer acquire the trouble codes by counting the flashes of the Check Engine light like you could on earlier OBD I vehicles. You can take your car into a local high-tech service shop, where the minimum charge for computer diagnostics and engine diagnostics might cost you somewhere into three digits. Or you may want to learn about OBD II systems. in order to do so you will need an OBD II scan tool. I have already done the research for you and located several different scan tools for you to choose from. If you already have the code and need to know what it means check out our complete list of OBD II Codes Here.





OBD II scan tools connect to the vehicle's computer through a connector under the dash by the steering wheel.

What can I use to clean ERG valve and how do I remove engine light?


In general your do not clean the EGR valve you replace it. When you replace it the code should go away once the ECM sees the problem is fixed. If not you need a obd II scan tool to erase the code causing the check engine light.

Service engine soon light is on


Have the engine's obd-II computer scanned with an obd-II scanner at autozone or advance auto parts, or by your own obd-II scanner that you can buy for under $100 at Walmart or Sears.

This will help to identify which circuit is bad on the vehicle, or what system is causing the SES light to go on.

Good luck on this diagnosis and repair.

Only way I am aware of is with GM is a scan tool or code reader that plugs into the OBD II connector. Some parts stores will scan these for you and tell you codes that are in there.

I have a 1996 buick roadmaster, the service engine soon light is on, how do i reset it?


Your vehicle is OBD II . Some auto parts stores such as Autozone will scan the codes for free and reset the light. If you have access to a OBD II scanner and know how to use it you can do it yourself also. By disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, that will also reset the light, BUT if the issue with your car that triggered the light in the first place has not been taken care of, the light will come on again when the vehicle's computer detects the problem.
