You need an OBII scan tool. See what codes are there. It could be as simple as leaving a gas cap off or something more serious. Many Auto Zones will scan for free..and reset the light.

Many cars of that period could be reset by some ignition key sequence.
Try switching from the off position to the on (not start) several times within 15-30 seconds.
It won't hurt anything and might turn off the light.
If the problem is still present that caused the light to go on the first time, it will likely come on again after you start the engine.

I hope the reason for that alarm light has been since corrected.

Some cars needed to have the battery disconnected for several minutes to cancel the memory contents.
Newer cars will not likely respnd to that since flash memory is now common which retains the error code even without power.

How do you clear check engine light on 94 jaguar xj6 after getting fuel fail code 14


First off, you might need to actually have your engine checked. However, if you know that the engine is in good shape and you're still seeing that pesky check engine light in your Jaguar XJ6, here's a cool trick for how to turn it off.

  • Remove the passenger's side dash liner.

  • Look for the round red connector with a single pink/red wire that is hanging free.

  • Turn on the ignition but do not start the car and then press the VCM button.

  • When the code displays, use a jumper wire to short the pink/red wire to ground for 3 seconds.

  • Turn the key off for 10 seconds and then turn it back on and check for any more stored codes.

  • If there are more use the same procedure to clear them.

95 jag problem diagnostic code is p1621 anybody know


The code means the engine control module imobilisation function is active.
can you describe what the car is doing and after you scanned the code did you try to reset it?
If so and there is no difference it may be a dealer reset only and you may have a bad ecu (water ingress?)
