on a lot of cars u can just unhook one of the battery cables for a few minutes and the light will stay out.
The check engine light is illuminated because there is a problem with one or more of the control devices on the engine. A responsible way of having this taken care of, would be to take it to a shop where they can repair the vehicle.
You can go to autozone, they will read the code for you, then then to clear it. If it keeps coming back I'd go to a garage at that point.
A Dodge Ram will have a check engine light appear when the engine needs to be serviced. You can reset this light by following the directions in your manual or by having your mechanic do it.
Resetting the ECM without fixing the reason why the check engine light came on will only lead to the check engine light coming back on soon.
if your check engine light is on your computer is reading a default code and needs to be serviced by a mechanic there is no fuse to control the light
i unhooked the battery...(both terminals)
Without having it checked for codes, It is impossibe to answer.
The check engine light could any number of things. It is impossible to know what the light means without having the car checked by a mechanic. The mechanic will then be able to tell what is wrong with the car.
The check engine light has a couple of variations, but is overall similar in all vehicles. It appears as either a small engine symbol with the words 'Check Engine," or without the words (or without the symbol and only the words).You might also see:Service Engine Soon.Check.An engine with a hazard symbol on it.(See related Links for images of the Check Engine light)If your asking what the symbol is meant to look like, its an engine.
That means you need to get your car serviced and when it gets serviced at the shop or where ever you bring it they will reset it until your car needs its next serviceing... (Its like a check up for a car) or just discunect it >:P
Without having a scan tool, you can disconnect the battery, and let sit for apx. 10 min., then reconnect.
(YES) & it would b really easy if there was a year & model :->
Because there is a fault in, or reported, by the monitoring system (computer) in the car and it needs to be serviced to find and or repair the problem.
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.
Hey DJ==No. Go to your local Auto Zone and they will read thm for free. GoodluckJoe
A fully serviced schedule is a comprehensive safety check that ensures that your car delivers optimum performance after maintenance.
Probably not. The o2 sensor will become very confused! FriPilot
Hard to answer. Without starting the engine, have a mechanic check it out.
Jumping the pin connector on the ECU will allow the check engine light to flash on the dash console. The check engine light will flash repeatedly and show codes.
A lot of parts stores will check it for free
Kiting is when you write a check on an account without having funds. You receive cash without having the funds to back it up.
I am sorry but you do not without the proper equipment.
This could be an indication that the engine coolant level is low. Check the fluid level when the engine is cool or take it in to get serviced. Low coolant allows air into the system and the sensor will read that the engine is hot.
Connect an OBD2 scan tool which will retrieve the codes set by the ECU. If you mean how to check to see if the light is working just turn the key on without starting the engine. The check engine light will illuminate.
You either take it to AutoZone and they will tell you why your check engine light came on in the first place so you can fix it. Or you go to AutoZone (or another place like it) and you buy the repair manual.
