My check engine light turned on recently. I know sometimes the light will come on to remind you of oil changes etc. How do I find the true reason without going to the dealer?Is there a reset button ?
No reset button. You don't need to go to the dealer to read the codes. You can purchase a scan code tool for OBDii, or go to a local auto parts store and have them read the code for free, places like Autozone. Once you get the code you can determine what course of action to take as they will give you the number and reason, and or you can post back here and we can help your further.
Auto Zone and Oreillys will scan your OBD for free. Light must be on for any codes to show. Disconnect the negative battery cable, that will reset your light.
