no a burnt out headlight will not cause a check engine light but if you go to most of the part places they will check the check engine light for free

Take off negative battery cable for about 15 minutes after you have fixed the problem

That requires an engine scanner to do that. Advance auto parts will scan it for free.

There are a number of reasons why the check engine light comes on, on a Suzuki x90. This is an indication that there is some malfunction in the engine which requires attention.

If your check engine light is on - get the engine checked by a qualified mechanic - don't try turning the light off - it is telling you there is a fault in your engine.

Check engine lite thru a computer read out says IMRC is stuck. I started it this spring after 5 months sitting and lite stayed out for 19 minutes

I just unscrew and take both battery cables off the battery for about 15 minutes and put back on. This should reset the engine light. The check engine light should go out. If it doesn't, you have trouble

User Avatar

Have vehicle scanned to determine problem and stored codes if any
