"Disconnect the negative terminal and push brake pedal for 30 seconds" worked great! One note: You must use actual key to unlock doors after battery disconnect to reset car alarm so car will start.

I recomend getting the car checked out by a professional. And you never unhook the positive battery cable first, you always do the negative firstl. And sometimes when you do this it erases the computers memory. so take to a professional.

If you HAVE TO, disconnect the negative battery terminal. Put your foot on the brake pedal for 30+ seconds.

I tried the previous answer of removing the negative battery cable, and holding the brake pedal for 30 seconds and it WORKED!!! Just got back from the emissions test, and passed. THANKS!!!

I got check engine light problem just happened few hours ago, my car is 1999 Mazda 626 ES, and I tried the previous answer of above- revmoving the negative cable as well. It REALLY WORKS. It saved my time & money ^^

[Apr 27, 2008]Just applied this method "disconnect the negative battery terminal. Put your foot on the brake pedal for 30+ seconds.", it just worked perfectly. Save me lots of worries and trouble to send the car to mechanics. Thanks so much to the one who posted this method.

i just used removed the negative battery and stepped on the brake for 30 seconds on my 2000 626 es and it worked! saved $80

Just did wt u said and it really works...thanks a million

Same thing works on a 2006 MX 5 Miata....light came on due to loose gas cap and I sure did not want to pay the dealer to reset the dang thing.....Advisable to check out why you have the light at AutoZone or most other parts houses before you reset the light.

a car scanner can help you.

The check engine light can be reset two ways. 1) If the problem resolves itself, the check engine light will reset itself after a certain amount of cold starts of the car on the on board computer system. 2) You need an OBD reader that has the reset check engine light capability.

It is important to make sure the check engine light is not on when having a car inspected. A person can reset the check engine light by clearing the codes that are causing the light to go on.
