Hi mohamed_a166 to reset the service light you will find a round diagnostic connector in the engine compartment, normally found on the left hand side by the suspension turrett. unscrew the top and you will find the pin connectors, You can either connect the correct service tool to reset the lights or with the ignition switched off, connect a length of wire from pin number 7 to an earth on the car, then switch the ignition on while the wire is still connected and the lights should reset after approxamately 15 seconds. I hope this works for you regards Mark.

A loud tappety knocking sound is heard from the rocker cover area at a cold start up. The noise goes after about 5 minutes (or less) running time. Then sounds perfectly normal after that. Oil life is 50% and the correct grade of oil is being used. Car is kept in garage and not exposed to extreme cold temperatures. Oil and filter are changed on the regular maintenance schedule and there are no engine service lights showing while the problem noise is heard. This 2002 model has less than 60,000 mil

After the oil was changed on my 2005 Dodge Van, the oil service light keeps coming on. If I turn the van off and restart it, the light goes out and stays out until I restart it again. I had the oil changed again and the light still comes on. I had taken it to an oil service company and the person who changed the oil, looked under the dash on the driver's side and said there wasn't a reset button. How do I reset the oil service light?

Hi. I have a 200 VW Bora V5. The oil quantity indicator light came on while driving. I stopped and checked the oil level...it was fine. I took the car to the service location and they did a complete service (to include oil change) but the light was still on. So I drained the oil, replaced the oil sensor, and refilled it...but the light is still on. It is not the red "oil pressure" light, it is the yellow "low oil" light...any ideas?

I did see the service engine light on, brought to some of the near service station but they couldn't fix that. We brought also to the Mitsubishi service station. But they say it is okay, it means they couldn't find the problem too. I checked the oil, it was less than suggested. I add new oil one bottle. Several minutes turned the engine, and the service engine light was off. It happened a month later. I added the new oil, and several minutes later the service engine light was off again. My que

I have a 2001 Pontiac Aztek issue. My service soon light came on (its the car picture with wrench). Thought it was related to the oil as it was due to be changed. The mechanic hooked it up to a computer and the code came back as the temperature sensor. A few weeks prior I noticed that the temperature guage was reading correctly (stuck on cold), even when I drove it around town all day. Two days later I was travelling out of town (got an hour away) and without warning it stalled. It had almost a

I just bought a 2004 Grand Cherokee pecial Edition. When I started my vehicle this morning the oil gauge never moved. Soon the "Check Gauges" light came on then the engine light came on. When I had the oil checked it was overful. Would this have caused this problem? The dealer has taken the car in for service and drained off the escess oil and replaced an O2 sensor. He said it had a code of PO139 and that is what caused the check engine light. I'm not sure i believe him.


Hi! You can stop doubting, when the 02 sensors are faulty it gives you the code po139. The oil just happes to be above normal filling but it has nothing to do with the code. Hope this shed some light. Take care! ... 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee
