Yes, removing the battery will clear the codes, but come back as soon as the issue is detected again, you need to fix what is causing it to go on in the first place.

Best Answer

I found a vacuum line unplugged, attached it, also changed the air filter, the check engine light still comes back on, after disconnect of the negative battery cable.


Check Engine Light problem, not fixed yet.

Time to scan for the OBDii 4 digit codes. Drive over to your nearest auto parts store, they should scan the car for free. Post the codes back here.
