Best Answer

One of the sensors is tripping the engine light. Codes need to be retrieved. Problems could be O2 sensor and or Catalytic Converter.

AnswerTry going to the dealership's service department. Most will have what you need on their computers and can print a copy for you. They did it for me in Houston, for the AC system. You have to ask nicely, as always, there are some people who try to take advantage of the service. This will anger the service guys and then they will not do it for anybody anymore.

How do you reset service engine light myself on a 2007 Chevy suburban?

I disconnect my battery and it goes out and is out when you reconnect. My 1997 Chevy van w/ 4.3L engine cannot handle all the fuel when I used passing gear, and the light comes on from raw gas going into the exhaust system. The only draw back I have found in doing this is that you need to drive it for 35 or so miles (some at freeway speed) to reset the 'black box'. And then only when you are going for an inspection sticker because they somehow need to be able to 'read' the black box in their inspection. Hope that helps...
