Clearing codes


Asked by Aug 14, 2016 at 09:14 PM about the 2010 Chrysler Sebring Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Alright so it makes sense something mechanical is
broken the code comes out saying hey this is
broken if you clear the code it doesn't fix the
problem because something like mass flow sensor
the rough idling went away seems to be running
fine what is it going to do negatively I mean

1 Answer


Two things. If emissions laws in your state require you to have your vehicle tested each year, the code clear will show up on that diagnostic, and that equals failure of the emissions test, which means revocation of your vehicles registration (plates). Second of all, the light came on for a reason, the OBDII code is a highly sophisticated diagnostic computer and does not make "mistakes". I would have the vehicle inspected and if the light comes on a gain, do not clear it so a reputable mechanic can read the code and determine the problem. Sometimes ignoring these small warnings can lead to costly repairs.... especially on a a Dodge Stratus or Chrysler Sebring. Google Engine Sludge. Best of luck.
