Don't waste your time its not happening Check engine light isn't related to the battery! scan it for DTC codes. Find out why the CEL light is ON

If you got a "battery" light, it's not the battery itself that caused it, but the charging system. Any auto parts store will do a free alternator test.

The trouble code is set and cannot be erased by replacing the battery or disconnecting it. There is only one procedure for resetting or erasing trouble codes.
