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 !!

Vw Jetta engine light


false When the engine light came on it is telling you that there is a serious problem occurring in the engine management system or CPU. The correct procedure is to run the fault codes to find out the faulty sensor/servo. Check coolant level at the radiator cap. Fix any faults and then have a code reader used to reset the engine light

P1681 Metering Oil Pump Malfunction, when the vehicle was started after draining the oil, the oil hadn't worked its way in yet so the code would pop up to notify you that the oil was low,, once reset you should be fine, Have fun, Good Luck

I recently purchased a 2004 Kia Rio. It is in excellent condition. A week ago, before registering it, we had an inspection and oil change done. Everything runs great, there are no problems with this car...


Hi:
I have not heard of an oil change causing a check engine light.

A good plan is to have your Kia scanned, to see what the code is that tripped the check engine light. Most auto parts stores, such as autozone, will do this for free.
Some codes are very simple, such as a loose gas cap.

Once you find out what the code is, you can then make an educated decision on what to do.

1998 Buick Park Ave., Check engine light is on, the computer displays Oil Change


The check engine light and the oil change indicator message are more than likely not related. You can toggle through the functions and get the oil life % to display then push the reset and hold it for a few seconds and it will reset the oil life indicator message. It should read oil life 100% after reset. (I would change the oil and filter if you have not already done so.)

The check engine light means you are setting an engine code, if it stays on, it is a hard code, if it is intermittant it is a soft code. Have it checked with a scan tool -- plug into your a.l.d.l. connector below the dash on the drivers side and read the code. Autozone and other places will do this for free.

The check engine light is on everything is ok on


In most later vehicles, that light may stay on for a fixed number (it can be 5-50, we have both) of startups of the engine or many have to be manually reset. The engine can't tell the computer that it has fresh oil but will turn the light on after some finite mileage since the last reset for periodic maintenance items such as your oil change, but some items can't reasonably reset the computer; it has to be told that the oil was changed.
Check your manual to find how to reset that warning light and if you no longer have the manual for your vehicle, you can download a copy of it from the Ford website.

Reset oil life display after oil change?


THIS SHOULD BE IT.
How do I reset the Engine Oil life monitor and how does it work? TO reset To reset the Engine Oil Life monitor do the following:
Reset Oil life in NAV/DIC by (with car running) going to INFO>Oil Life>RESET
Press and HOLD until XXX turns to 100%
How does it work? The oil life monitor is a pretty sophisticated algorithm.

GM "The GM Oil Life System will automatically adjust the oil change interval based on engine characteristics, driving habits and the climate in which the vehicle is operated."
