The only way you might be able to get past that is to take it into some hole in the wall inspection place and disconnect the positive battery terminal and it will turn the light off temporarly. but when they plug the computer up to it, its gonna say that it needs to be drivin to get new readings from all the sensors. i would go to some auto part stores and they sell the obd scanner and some of them will turn the light off and hide the issue. but that could cost anywhere from 80-200 dollars...or you could just fix the issue, its just a bad sensor somewhere. prolly an o2 sensor

SERVICE ENGINE LIGHT ON 01 OLDS INTRIGUE WONT SHUT OFF


You need to have the car analyzed to see why the light is on. My light came on on my 2002 Olds and I needed a catalytic converter to pass smog inspection. It could be multiple things so let an expert check it!

Tried getting ford f150 4.2 2003 inspected. Replaced air filter and fuel filter already. Check engine lit was on before replacing them . Now check engine light is out . But won't pass inspection.


As for your codes p1131 and 1151: Ford - Lack Of Heated Oxygen Sensor Bank 1 Sensor 1 Switches - Sensor Indicates Lean


Last week I had the very same catalyst, evap and ECG codes come up on my 1999 Mercury Mystique which is like a Ford Taurus. A friend was able to find a hole or leak in the hose connected, replaced it and it runs fine. I havent run it a full and straight 50 miles yet to clear the check engine light but that repair alone changed the entire way the car was poorly driving. Im sure that hasnt fixed all the probs but thats a good starting point.

My 1999 Ford F150 wont pass inspection because the "service engine soon" light is on. Isnt there a reset button I can hit to resolve this, so I can at least get it inspected.


You would have to get it on a diagnostic machine to have it turned off, cost about $25 to be honest you could just take the bulb out until after the inspection, thing is mostly they come on for no valid reason, its just another way the car makers squeze money out of us.

hope that helps

97 ford f150 will not pass inspection


If you have a component problem (plug missfires, run rich, bad O2 sensors, etc.) the "check engine light" should have come on in the dash. Its possible that warning light is burned out.

You need to get a free scan from Autozone or Oreillys or a similar autoparts place. There may be problems a scanner can pick up or the source of all your problem is the onboard computer which is not lighting up the "Check Engine Light". Either way, a scan will let you at least know the computer is working.

If you have a V-8 with the Aluminum intake, there is a groove under the Airhorn gasket that gets sooted up. 8 bolts and a $10 gasket fixes it when you clean it. Also check the plumbing from the "Backpressure pipe", it goes from Exhaust to EGR pipes at back of engine. This can give burnt sulfur smell on accelleration if there are holes in it.

In some states you get a print out of the test and when they fail the mechanic at least will give you an estimate to fix the problem. There is also a liquid sold at Autoparts places to help your vehicle pass the test. It is a gas additive. Then since oil vapors are drawn into the engine to burn, clean semisynthetic oil will have less contaminants. Do an oil change and new Air filter before testing.

I hope these suggestions are helpful.

We have spent over $5000 in the past year fixing VARIOUS issues w/my 2002 Rendezvous (it was a fantastic car PRIOR to rolling over 100,000 miles) and the "Service Engine Soon" light has NEVER gone off for...


As you have already serviced it, reset the ECU by pulling the large fuse (check diagram for ECU fuse) and/or taking the battery leads off for at least 30-60mins. Reconnect and drive a while. This should reset the ECU and no more engine service light :)

Have a 2002 Ford F150. Service engine light soon is on. Is there a way to manually pull the codes?


On my 02 ford pu, if you have the digital odometer, I hold the odometer/reset button down while starting engine, it goes thru test and gives error codes. Disconnecting negative battery cable for a minute, then reconnecting, will turn off the light if there are no issues.
