Question about 2003 Kia Spectra
My check engine light came on and I had the oil changed and it is still on. I was told that it has to be reset. How do I get the code?
Disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 seconds or more and it should reset.
Mine came on after I flushed the cooling system and put new antifreeze in it.
Reset after I replaced the battery. But there are other things that can cause the light to come on.

My engine light went on 2 days ago after I over filled my tank,Oops! I took it to the Kia dealer who did a diagnostics which cost me $90, and they say the light is on because the transmission malfunctioned.I saw this suggestion on resetting the battery. By the way the dealer said, the only way to shut off the light was to REPLACE the transmission!! I disconnected the battery cables, both of them for good measure and guess what! The light is off.SO, my guess is do not try to bump the gas when you are filling up, as this will trigger the engine light.But, thanks to the person who made this suggestion. I wish I had seen this 2 days ago I would be $90 richer.This did work !!
