How To Reset Check Engine Light.

When the computer in your automobile notices a problem with the power train, the check engine light turns on. It may be a sign of a significant or minor issue, but ignoring it will only make the issue worse and result in more expensive damage and repair. Here is a guide on how to turn off your car's check engine light.

1). Technique for disconnecting a battery.

Remove the negative terminal from the automobile battery first. Then, try to exhaust any remaining electricity in the capacitor of the automobile by sounding the horn for 20 to 30 seconds or turning on the lights. After the electricity is turned off, wait 10 to 15 minutes before returning to your automobile. Reconnect the battery terminals after this little period of time, and then start your car.

2. Starting and stopping the ignition

Another way to perform a hard reset without disconnecting the battery is to turn the ignition on and off repeatedly. After inserting the keys, turn the ignition on and off one at a time, waiting a second between each.

3. Employ a 0BD2 scanner.

Connect the scanner to the 0BD connector found under the steering column on most automobile models while your check engine light is on. Next, turn the ignition to the "ON" position in your car. Press the "read" button on the scanner to go through all of the stored trouble codes after the computer and automobile have made contact.

4. Continue to drive

Driving your automobile is sometimes the best way to turn off the check engine light.
