    Toyota delaerships set the engine lights to turn on when autos reachh specific mileage such as 5000,10000,15000,20,000 25,000 etc. They get customers to come into the dealership and spend money unnecessarily for an engine check when there is actually nothing wrong with the autos. I purchased my Scion in 2006 and have to deal with this on-going probl;em since that time, my car just turned 45,000 and the "Check Engine" light just came on.

Funny: My mechanic has changed both O2 sensor's, thinking this would take care of the problem. And he didn't show knowledge of disconnecting the battery cable. He thinks now it has something to do with the transmission. He also never mentioned any thing about the RED check engine soon flag, and why wouldn't he reset that for me???? I am going to try the negative disconnect for ten minute solution. THANKS

Hi Kiwalk
You have to take your Negitive battery cable off for ten minutes, With all door closed ignition off. and be careful not to touch the Negitive and Positive cable together. After the ten minutes Hook back up your Negitive and tighen firmly. Now you check engine light should be off now, Now if the Light turns back on after driving a couple of miles you may have to bring it a sevice center to find out what the code is, And fix the problem. I sure hope that helps you out.

Had the oil changed in 2002 New Beetle. The check engine light, ASR (Anti-Slip Regulation), and EPC (Electronic Power Control) dash warning lights are all on. Solid lights, not blinking.


Not without clearing codes. And if the check engine light is on due to an actual problem, it can turn the other warning light on too so you know those systems are disabled. Usually a problem with ABS or traction control will not turn on the check engine light.
Your owners manual would talk more about what the lights mean.
I would have the engine computer scanned for trouble codes first.

RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD


THIS IS HOW YOU RESET THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT ON THE 99 HONDA ACCORD. 1. With the Car Off, Press and hold down the Odometer Trip Reset Button. 2. While still pressing the Trip Reset Button, Turn the Ignition Key half way on where all your oil, check engine lights etc.. turn on. Don't turn it as far as you would to normally start the car. Wait a few seconds and the Check engine light will turn off. 3. Turn the key back to the Off position and you're done. What a scam Honda has with the BS Check Engine Light.

How do you turn off engine light on a 2009 Mercury Marquis


The Check Engine light must be reset using an OBD-II code reader. Dealers have them as do repair shops. Places like AutoZone will read the codes for you, but normally will not reset the Check Engine light due to possible liability issues. You can purchase a code reader at these places to do this yourself. Make sure you get one that can read and reset the engine light. The very cheap ones cannot reset the Check Engine light.

How do i reset the check engine light on a 91 cavalier


You can remove the codes (and turn off the check engine light) by simply removing the negative battery cable for a minute or two. Make sure the ignition key is off before you do.

Whatever fault that turned on the check engine light on, if it is still there, it will turn on the light again. Then you would want to retrieve the codes and see about repairing the fault. Post back if you need help on how to get the codes to flash out by the light.

Check engine light solid


Most of the newer vehicles have a senser that will turn the check engine light on, even when it's time to change the oil. After they change it, they reset the check engine light to turn it off. It could be something as simple as that or even an air filter needing to be changed. The dealer can tell you how to reset that light to turn it off. Good luck!

How to reset engine lite in dash


Check engine light comes on and off, these are indication that there is some error code stored in your vehicles ECM. The engine module computer needs to be scanned. These will give the code and as per the error code the further problem can be detected and confirmed. The engine light indicator blinks or remains steady on dash when engine computer noticed any problem with any engine electrically operated components.

The check engine light is on my 1995 Saab 900s. I can not find a techician with the correct scanner.How can I turn off the light?


There are three ways to reset a check engine light.

1. Disconnect the battery, wait approximately 30 minutes, reconnect the battery. This resets the cars computer which also reset the check engine light. On newer OBD (on-board diagnostic) compliant vehicles this usually does not work. See step 2.

2. Reset using an OBD II reader. When you hook an OBD II code reader up to your vehicle, you can reset the computer using the code reader.

3. Fixing the problem. Generally the check engine light comes on for a reason. Usually it is emission related (sensors, gas cap) or electrical (faulty wiring). In this case the way to reset the check engine light is to fix the problem

LEXUS LS 2004 Maint Reqd (Master warning light) how I can switch off after change the oil engine?


You can disconnect your battery for 15 minutes or pull the fuse for an ECM or PCM fuse, but the best way is to visit any local repair shop. Most shops will have a universal Check Engine Light Code Reader that can quickly and safely reset check engine light trouble codes. It should take about 30 seconds.

Ask your local service center if they could reset the check engine light with a Check Engine Light Code Reader.

How to reset check engine light and change oil soon light


You should not reset the ck eng light until you have repaired the problem. Its just going to come on again, unhooking the battery MAY reset it. To reset the change oil light, turn the key on and floor the gas pedal 3 times, that should reset the light.
