Codes will eventually clear on their own if the problem(s) no longer exist. If you can't wait disconnect the battery, reconnect after 30 minutes. The problem with this is you loose clock and radio settings.
After fixing the cause of the problem. you clear code with a scan tool, or by unhooking the battery.
The check engine light goes on because there is a problem with the engine control system. Until the problem is fixed it will continue to come back on even after you clear it by disconnecting the battery.
i have a different make and model of truck, but had the same problem after jump starting mine after the dome light discharged the battery. I found in the Haynes manual that the ECM on the fuel injection might have gotten an error message causing this problem. After charging the battery, I simply had to disconnect the negative battery terminal for 20 seconds or so to clear the ECM and the problem went away. Alternatively in my truck, it could take up to 50 starts for the engine to clear itself, I refused to wait that long. Hope this helps, good luck.
No, you can't clear codes on any vehicle by disconnecting the battery. Thet are stored in the ECM and are still there when you re-connect the battery.
Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Unless you have repaired the problem the light will just come back on.
Try disconnecting battery for about 10 mins. or have vehicle scanned to determine problem or clear codes
On this vehicle the check engine light must be reset with a scan tool.
The codes are telling you there is a problem. If the problem is not fixed the codes will come back.
Assuming you have already fixed the problem that caused the check engine light to come on in the first place, there are a couple ways to turn off the check engine light. The first way, which is the right way, is take it to a mechanic that will use a scanner and clear the codes, or you can simply unhook your battery for a few seconds, and then hook it back up. Either way will work, but if you didnt fix the problem it will come back on.
disconnect negative battery cable.remove instrument cluster,remove 2 screws holding switch in. push the switch about an inch straight back to clear the mounting bracket,then lift it up and out of panel..
Disconnect the battery for 15 minutes. It will clear the codes but will not solve the problem. Best thing is to have the codes read to find a solution.
Leave radio power on for 1 hour
You can disconnect the battery for a few minutes and that will clear the light. If there is a problem with the engine the check engine light will come back on. If it comes back on you will have to have the computer code read and fix the problem.
the correct way is to use an OBD tool, and clear the codes out of the computer. you can also disconnect the negative terminal on the battery for 5 min. i am baffled as to why you would want to clear the code and not find out what the problem is, if the light is on, you can take it to autozone and they will scan the computer too see what the problem is with the car. .
Disconnecting the battery and pumping the brake will clear trouble codes from an ob2 vehicles computer. No it will not. You need to fix the problem
Disconnect negative battery cable for about 5 minutes. The light will just come back on if you have not repaired the problem that set the light in the first place.
You can disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes and this will clear the check engine codes stored in the computer. If the problem that caused the code has not been repaired the check engine code will just happen again. The only way to get the check engine light to not be on is to repair the problem then clear the codes.
