What would you like to do?
Answer Take the positive terminal off the battery for a few minutes. Then put it back on, This should reset the computer. You can also take the neg terminal off an…d get the same results.
Answer The light is on because the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system. After this problem is repaired the light is reset with a scan tool. F…or a quick fix at home without having to go to a shop and give them a lot of money all you have to do is disconnect the negative (black) terminal on the battery then insert your keys in the ignition and turn it a couple of times like when you start the car. Then take the keys out, reconnect the battery and problem solved! Warning: This does not fix the problem, if there is a serious problem the Check Engine Light will flash instead of remaining solid. If light continues to come on get it checked out immediatly.
Answer First, a check engine light usually means that the computer has stored an error code. Find out what is wrong and repair the problem. Once that is reso…lved, the owners manual has instructions for resetting the check engine light. The procedure is different for most vehicle manufacturers but it is usually quite simple if you follow the directions in the book. Answer Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
need a scan tool wich can be purchased At any parts store or simply disconect battery if it is a hard code will come back on until problem is fixed
The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, a check engine light is lit when there is a pr…oblem in the emissions or somthing that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions.
When a check engine light comes on, it means that there are issues with the engine. It gets turned off when the person resolves the problem that caused it to turn on.
There is a switch close to the steering column that turns it off.
After repairing the cause for the code, you can clear code with a scan tool.
I think you are assuming that to reset the check engine light you can just disconnect the battery. Disconnecting the battery on a 2004 OBD2 compliant vehicle will not reset th…e check engine light. It must be reset with an OBD2 scan tool. This would work on OBD1 vehicle but not on OBD2 vehicles. So the radio issue is mute. Have the problem that set the check engine light repaired and then reset the light with the tool. Reset the light without correcting the problem and the light will just come back on.
i can think of only one good way to turn the check light off ... you check the engine ... and get what needs to be fixed fixed ...
with scan tool but you must fix the problem to keep it from comming on .
most code readers will also erase the code(s), which will turn off the ce lite. HOWEVER, this also resets readiness monitors. the car then has to go thru several different run…ning stages, like high speed, stop and go, etc. until all system readiness monitors are active, you cannot pass state inspection. also, after all system readiness monitors are active, most likely the ce lite will again illuminate. so, the absolute best way to turn off the check engine lite is to FIX THE PROBLEM.
disconnect battery for 30 seconds
Hi, The first thing you would need to do is find out what is causing the light to come on. In order to do that, you need to connect the van to a scan tool or code reader to …find out what Diagnostic Test Codes (DTC) are stored in the computer. These will tell you what happened to cause the light to come on in the first place. Once you have the code or codes, then you will have an idea of what happened and what steps are needed to repair the problem and turn the light off. Most scan tools and code readers can turn the light off, but if the problem is not repaired, then it is very likely that the light will just come back on in a short period of time. To find the meaning of the codes, you can search the Internet for the exact code to find out what your next step would be. I have provided a link to a site that lists many of the codes for this van. Good Luck, Greg
with an obdII scanner. stop by an auto zone they should check it for free. Auto Zone is not supposed to reset your computer as I've experienced and/or been told so...........D…isconnect your negative battery terminal (you can do it under the hood at the jump off connectors) for a minute or so. This will actually clear the code for the light being on but not take the codes out. Go to Auto Zone and they will scan the 'puter and give you a read out of the codes and problems associated with them.

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the em…issions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
Here a answer maybe CHECK THE ENGINE:) the light will go off
