How do you reset the check engine light on a 2003 Mazda MPV?
Check engine is telling you something theres problem on your engine, I hope you did not mess with your timing if not then start checking with your spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor I hope these helps you. In most cases fixing the problem makes the light go out. If you have an OBDII code reader, you can use that to clear the code(s) but the light will soon come on again if the problem is still there. It doesn't have a cap and rotor and you can't adjust the ignition timing. That same OBDII reader or a shop with one will tell you what's wrong.
How do you reset the check engine light on a 1999 Mazda Protege manual shift with approx 130000 runs great?
When you were changing the oil in your Mazda rx 8 you cranked it with oil cap off now check engine light is ondid i hurt the engine?
As long as it was full of oil when you cranked it, you did no damage whatsoever. The check engine light came on because the ECU detected a problem with the emissions system which was the cap missing. Have the check engine light reset and you will be fine. You can disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes which may or may not reset the light. If not, it will have to be reset…
First you need to determine why the check engine light came on then make appropriate repairs before resetting the check engine light. Take a drive to your local auto parts store and have them check for codes. They will perform this service at no cost to you. Once you have the codes you or your mechanic can determine what the next step should be.
I don't believe you (as an operator) can "reset" the check engine light. A mechanic can probably reset it using the port that actually draws the code which caused the failure. When my check engine light came on, I did what the owners manual indicated and just tried a few more tanks of gas (manual indicated that a bad tank of gas might be the problem, or the gas cap might not be installed correctly)…
I had the engine light come on in my patrol due to overheating and I had to take the vehicle to the dealer's service centre where they plugged it into the computer which advised why the light came on and then reset it. There was a minimal service fee for this. I assume it will be the same process for the Mazda.
