How do you reset the check engine light on a 2001 Acrua TL and do you have to have the dealer reset it?

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.
