How do I reset a MIL after the repair is complete?
I have a 2011 Mini Clubman S, 73,500 miles. I recently encountered a
power loss and the associated yellow check engine light. Code reader gave
a random misfire on cyl #2. Installed a set of plugs and coil packs, and the
car is running great, but the yellow engine light is still showing. Tried
clearing it with two different OBD readers...one said it was successful, but
the light did not go out, one said the erase failed. Any ideas how to reset it
after the repair is complete?
If the repair is done correctly it will go off by itself in about 20 cold starts, but the code reader should have cleared the code, you might want to got to someplace like autozone and have it cleared if you think there is something work with your code reader. Do NOT disconnect the battery or you will windup at the dealer getting the system reflashed.
Thanks for the response...turned out the problem was I was trying to reset the code with the engine running (the only way I had found to make the code reader connect). Additional web searches educated me on how to put my push-button start car into accessory mode - problem solved!
