There is a fuse you can remove but if you do not have a service manual to ID the fuse I would not recommend this. The easy way is to go to your nearest autozone and tell them your check engine light is on, the employee will hook up the hand computer to read the code. After he reads the code tell him that you want he to clear the code from your on board computer.

Inside the owner's manual it tells how to reset this check engine warning light. I have found that in my car this light comes on about every 7,000 miles, or whenever the oil should be changed. Here is how its done. While the car is off, depress both the Reset and the Select buttons up on the console near the hazard button. Keep them both depressed while you turn the engine on. Keep holding, because within 10 or fifteen seconds the check engine light will flash. This is the signal that the switch is reset and you can let go of the buttons. That's all there is to it.

In the 2001 Acura user manual it states that it takes three drive trips to reset the check engine light and if it comes on repeatedly it should be checked. as for the SRS light it could be reset by shorting the system but not recommended I did it a few times and it could damage the engine timing control, car will run a high RPM lights will not work on your info pannel ect.

Do you mean to reset the computer? If it did not work and the check engine light came back on then the problem that caused the ECU to set the check engine light has not been repaired. Take it back to the dealer.

No, oil level does not cause the check engine light.

The service engine light is the same thing as a check engine light.

The check engine light is the light shaped like an engine, or the light that states Check Engine (Soon). If this light comes on, it is time to see what the issue is with the engine.

Check engine light. It means there is a problem with the emissions system. Take it to the dealer for repair.

Yes, the Service Engine Soon light is the same as the Check Engine light.

The check engine light does not generally have anything to do with the check oil light. The oil light just indicated it is time to change the oil, while the engine light indicates a problem.

Your Mass Air Flow Sensor (MAFS) is faulty. Check with your local Nissan dealer.

If you are referring to resetting the Check Engine Light then you will need to have someone with a scanner to do it. If you are referring to reprogramming the Engine Control Module then the dealer will do it.

You have a problem with the engine controls, have the codes read at the dealer or an auto parts store and make the necessary repairs and the light will go out, or it can be reset by the tech.

Check your owners manual. There should be a description/picture of the check engine light.

assuming you mean the check engine light, or the picture of the engine. A good rule of thumb regardless of manufacturer is that if the check engine light FLASHES, it means there is currently a serious engine (or emissions) problem that could damage the vehicle. Recommend you take it in to a dealer or other good garage.

This is a 2004 Honda, that is still under warranty. Take it back to the dealer! If you will check your owners manuel it will tell you how to rset the 10,000 mile check engine light.
