Check engine lights are triggered by a problem that the computer sees.If the problem is a 'hard' code, an existing fault that is occurring now, the light will keep coming back on.If the fault is a 'soft' code,a problem that the computer has seen but does not exist at this time, the light will stay off when cleared.Either way, you need a read out box to clear codes.This will turn off the light but it will also remove any stored info that the tech needs to properly fix the problem. It is recommended that you take the vehicle to a certified tech for proper diagnosis.
