Before we dive too far into this subject, it should be noted that a trained automotive service expert, like those at our Service Center, should be consulted before attempting to reset or potentially ignore a check engine light. 99% of the time, if a check engine light has come on, it’s because there is a persisting issue with your vehicle’s powertrain that should be addressed immediately. On the rare chance that your vehicle isn’t actually having an issue, it would be worth knowing how to reset a check engine light on your own. So the very same team here at Dave Arbogast Buick GMC is here to help you learn how to do just that. Keep reading for more info! Be sure to contact us online if you have any questions, or would like assistance with your Sidney area vehicle’s check engine light!
If you’ve arrived at the conclusion that you’re going to reset your check engine light, you’ve either hopefully resolved whatever issue was originally causing the light, or are choosing not to have it addressed right now. While this is ultimately up to you, we of course urge you to take care of the issue as soon as possible, not just as a business who repairs vehicles, but as neighbors who care about the safety of our fellow Springfield area residents. Not to mention the fact that ignoring a small mechanical issue can snowball into having to repair something much more expensive.
One cause for a check engine light that many people don’t know about is a loose or cracked gas cap, which releases fumes into the air. Next time you’re safely parked, remove your gas cap, make sure the threads inside are clean and free of dirt or debris, and firmly secure the cap back on. If the check engine light doesn’t turn off right away after doing this, follow the steps below to disconnect your battery, which should in turn reset the light.
If you’re sure that resetting your check engine light is the proper next step, manually resetting your check engine light via removal of the negative battery cable is going to be your best bet. Simply follow these instructions:
This should do the trick and have you back on the roads of Dayton in a jif! However, if it doesn’t, we’ve got another option for you to try. Please note that disconnecting your battery will also reset your vehicle’s radio or infotainment system!
If you’re feeling at all unsure, you should feel free to Schedule an Appointment with our Service Department, who will be more than happy to assist you! We have more service tips available if you need them as well.
