If the diagnostic says the EGR valve is bad but the light still comes on after it is cleaned what do you do next?

Check the EGR solenoid or some sort of EGR sensor. Most cars have these nowadays.

could be bad wiring, sensor holder or pick up.

You need to reset the light by using diagnostic equipment even though the part was replaced the fault code will still be stored in the ECU memory.

You have to clear the computer of the malfunction; Use the same diagnostic tool that read the code to clear the light.

They reflect and scatter visible light that comes from an external source.

Antilock Brake Light comes on and stays on when the ABS computer detects some problem with the antilock brakesystem components. You will still have normal brake use, but the Antilock system will probably not work as an Antilock brake system is supposed to work. ABS system diagnostic code readers are available and are recommended for diagnostic purposes, however fixing ABS systems is perhaps best left up to the Pros. . .

The "Check Engine" light is a diagnostic indicator showing that the On Board Diagnostic computer has detected a problem and has saved the trouble code. You can get the trouble code from the OBD system using a special computer attachment. Most auto parts stores will get the trouble code for you for free (and be happy to sell you the part that would need to be replaced.) Check the trouble code to insure that it is referring to a flow issue. If the electrical system is at fault, consult your service manual for the proper test.

The mechanic ran every diagnostic test, but still could not locate the source of the problem.

Assuming a pure frequency: The filter will not change the frequency of the light. Either some of the red light comes through - in which case it will still be red. Or it will completely filter out the light - in which case the result will be black.

All vehicles since 1996 have OBDII (On Board Diagnostics II) built in. the "check engine" or "service" light is part of the OBD system that indicates a failure code is in the on board computer. the light is turned off by clearing the memory using an OBD scan tool (plugs into the diagnostic port). If the light comes back on, the fault is still present and will need to be diagnosed and repaired.

Go to Auto Zone and they will check you engine light for FREE... And go from there...

Well, you could remove and replace the accalerator pedal, and reset the system with a diagnostic tool and software. Mechanic still ongoing.

Yes, but usually no codes will come up on a scanner without eng light on which means no trouble in any system. A diagnostic machine may still be able to find something or can tell general condition. Your best bet is a mechanic that is an expert on your particular model if you suspect something is amiss.

It is highly recommended that you have the car checked as soon as possible. The light comes on to signify a problem with the ABS. However, when the ABS fails the brake system will function just like the pre-ABS equipped vehicles. Yes, you can still drive it.

This light comes on when the computer on your car has set a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code). You can use a scan tool or go your local parts and have them use on to read these codes and, if you wish, clear them so that the light goes off. Doing this may be in vain because if the problem indicated by the DTC is still present, the light will come back on. The only way to keep the light off is to find and repair the root cause of the DTC and then clear the code.

The Sun. A tiny amount is reflected from the Earth and a tinier amount still comes from stars.

Did you reset the light? I don't know what gasket you changed, but undoubtedly that was not the problem. The check engine light comes on when there is a problem with the emissions system.

User Avatar

I am having the same issue AFTER replacing the torque converter and switch in the transmission. My check engine light was coming on with the transaxle light and the code read to replace these items BUT the transaxle light is still coming on. I am still trying to get an answer on this!

User Avatar

you still have a problem the light only comes on when it stores a current code

User Avatar

No they cleaned that up in 1788.

It hasnt been cleaned up its still leaking. Bp has no idea how to close off the pipe or get it cleaned up they have completly screwed our marine life in the gulf.

Check the engine oil, sometimes when the oil is low the check engine light comes on while sitting still and goes out when you accelarate.

User Avatar

cycle the key 3 times to read the codes.. it should shut the light off.. but if you still have a problem it will still come back on. if that doesnt work go to autozone or discount auto parts.. they have a obd tool that can read and clear diagnostic codes.. but if you have a problem it might not be a good idea to ignore the light.
