The engine light came on because the system lost power, this resets the parameter's of the fuel control mapping of the computer control module, if you ride it a few days under varying conditions the light should go out by itself. As for right now the system sees a fault so there is no way to "clear" it other than what I just mentioned above. If the light doesn't go out after a few days you will need the dealer to hook up the diagnostic scanner and see what is causing the fault light to remain lighted.

    One other comment, this is a fairly common problem on the 07 models, if the light doesn't go out they will need to reflash the EPROM chip (Electronic Programmable Read Only Memory) in the ECM (Electronic Control Unit)

Check engine light is on but it needed an oil change and i got one but the light hasnt gone off, how do i reset it?

The check engine light does not refer to oil changes, this is for emmision and fuel management as well as a diagnostic tool for other engine components. The only wasy to clear this is to have the dealer clear them or repair what ever is causing the light. It will however clear it self after about 20 times of starting the car and the computer not seing any more bad scans from what ever caused the light to come on in the first place. You can have Auto Zone pull the codes from your car and tell you what caused the light to come on in the first place. To clear the aoil change light turn the key on and press the gas pedal 3 times all the way to the floor without the engine running.

Engine light on-replaced sensors still on

When you fix most anything triggered by a "Check Engine " light, you have to clear the computer. There are 2 ways to clear it. One is to unhook the Neg cable from the Battery for 10 minutes, the other is to use a scanner.

Sometimes there is a problem when unhooking the Battery as it affects other things when the power is lost. You can get this service done for free at Autozone or Oreillys and they will rescan your vehicle. There may be different codes showing now that you have changed some parts and it may be the better way to go.

If you used the Battery cable removal technique and the light still was on, you would need to rescan your car anyway. If you have a question about codes you can contact this site.

Ford f350 diesel engine service light remains on after oil and filter change and disconect of battery

changing your oil has nothing to do with a check engine light. a disconnect of the battery wont clear a code anymore.only way out is to have the code cleared with a scan tool which it will most likely come back on until you have the problem repaired

Change engine il and tire pressure message how do i rest

Must have codes for check engine light cleared with scan tool. Check all tire pressures and road test up to 35 mph. Tire message should clear if low tire was problem. If light for tires remains then possible radio frequency sensor problem. Sensor replacement may be necessary. Sensors have alkaline non-serviceable batteries. If battery is dead sensor will have to be replaced.

Changed the plugs...

Yes, the code will need to be cleared by the technician.

Usually the check engine light doesn't come back on immediately. However it will store the code until it is cleared by the tech.

If it comes back on immediately, then you have an immediate problem b/c it take a certain number of misfires over a certain number of miles before it trips the code again.

Check engine light

The check engine light is tripped on when a fault in the cars systems is detected. Based on the fact that it won't change gears it is probably related to the PCM(PowerTrain Control Module) or related sensor. Disconnecting the battery only clears the code temporarly and will come back on when the fault is re-detected. The best advice I can give you is to take it to a local dealer or parts store and have them scan the computer with a code reader to identify the faulty component. Once you know what is causing the fault replace the defective part and clear the code by resetting the battery.

Hope this helps.

Cannot turn off the check engine light, recently had dagnostic done and told to change air flow meter, changed it and the light is still on?

To turn off the check engine light(CEL),you must clear the diagnostic trouble code (DTC).This can be done with a scan tool.If you do not have a scan tool,you can disconnect the NEGATIVE battery terminal.Do this for a minimum of 20 minutes to clear the keep alive memory (KAM).Reconnect the battery terminal.If the CEL comes back on again,you have not fixed the problem,or another problem has cropped up,requiring a scan tool to see what DTC has set.
