Answer . Take the positive terminal off the battery for a few minutes. Then put it back on, This should reset the computer.. You can also take the neg terminal off and get… the same results.
Answer . The light is on because the computer has detected a problem with the emissions system. After this problem is repaired the light is reset with a scan tool.. For a …quick fix at home without having to go to a shop and give them a lot of money all you have to do is disconnect the negative (black) terminal on the battery then insert your keys in the ignition and turn it a couple of times like when you start the car. Then take the keys out, reconnect the battery and problem solved!. Warning: This does not fix the problem, if there is a serious problem the Check Engine Light will flash instead of remaining solid. If light continues to come on get it checked out immediatly.
Answer . First, a check engine light usually means that the computer has stored an error code. Find out what is wrong and repair the problem.\n. \nOnce that is resolved, t…he owners manual has instructions for resetting the check engine light. The procedure is different for most vehicle manufacturers but it is usually quite simple if you follow the directions in the book.. Answer . Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem
need a scan tool wich can be purchased At any parts store or simply disconect battery if it is a hard code will come back on until problem is fixed
There are pages and pages of things that can cause a check engine light. You need to have it checked with a scantool. Then the code can be diagnosed and repaired.
When a check engine light comes on, it means that there are issueswith the engine. It gets turned off when the person resolves theproblem that caused it to turn on.
sorry for my English y am from holland turn ignition on press 3 themes on the accelerator turn ignition of wait 15 sec if necessary repeat this a few thems good luck That wou…ld be for the change oil light i believe.
After repairing the cause for the code, you can clear code with a scan tool.
There are two methods of resetting the Check Engine light on a vehicle. One involves using a Code Scanner, by reading the codes, and most have a feature to reset the codes onc…e they have been read. If you find yourself without a code scanner, simply remove the negative battery cable from the battery for at least 10 minutes. This will reset the computer, thus resetting any codes that were stored, that were causing the Check Engine light to begin with. Don't do any of the above if you plan to take your car to a Mechanic, as they will be using those codes to diagnose, and ultimately repair your vehicle.

i can think of only one good way to turn the check light off ... you check the engine ... and get what needs to be fixed fixed ...
most code readers will also erase the code(s), which will turn off the ce lite. HOWEVER, this also resets readiness monitors. the car then has to go thru several different run…ning stages, like high speed, stop and go, etc. until all system readiness monitors are active, you cannot pass state inspection. also, after all system readiness monitors are active, most likely the ce lite will again illuminate. so, the absolute best way to turn off the check engine lite is to FIX THE PROBLEM.
Hi, The first thing you would need to do is find out what is causing the light to come on. In order to do that, you need to connect the van to a scan tool or code reader to… find out what Diagnostic Test Codes (DTC) are stored in the computer. These will tell you what happened to cause the light to come on in the first place. Once you have the code or codes, then you will have an idea of what happened and what steps are needed to repair the problem and turn the light off. Most scan tools and code readers can turn the light off, but if the problem is not repaired, then it is very likely that the light will just come back on in a short period of time. To find the meaning of the codes, you can search the Internet for the exact code to find out what your next step would be. I have provided a link to a site that lists many of the codes for this van. Good Luck, Greg
Hi, To get the light off, and to have it REMAIN off, you will need to have the van connected to a scan tool or code reader to find out what is turning on the light. Once th…at is done, you can have the fault found & fixed, and then the computer (or shop) will clear the diagnostic code. If the problem has NOT been fixed, then the code and light will come back.
The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the em…issions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to a parts store or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
If the check engine light is flashing off and on when the engine is running that means an engine cylinder(s) misfire has been detected . You need to have the vehicle scanned… for any trouble codes to help diagnose and then repair the problem
ETS is the traction control system. If you want it, you simply pushthe button to turn it on... you may have hit it inadvertently.. Iused to own a 99 Grand Am (another GM produ…ct) and constantly didthe same thing. Or it could be a fault in the ETS system. As forthe check engine light, the first thing you do is find out thecause of it. You can go to any auto parts store and have them readthe fault codes with their OBD2 scanner.
