Lightbulb Service Engine Soon Light

I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse GST, and the service engine soon light is on how do i turn it off!?? I dont want to disconnect the battery cable method because that just temporarily turns it off! I know on some vehicles you just need to hold the mileage reset buttons for a few seconds but it's not working any suggestions would be appreciated!!!!

Thank you!

Well most likely its on for a reason, and if you want it to stay off your going to have to get it fixed. Yeah you can get it turned off but if you dont fix the problem it will come back on. Take it to autozone and have them scan it they do it for free.

Re: Service Engine Soon Light

Anyone competant with an OBD2 code scanner can clear that code.

If the code comes back, you didnt fix your issue.

No

1 Use pocketlogger / ODBII reader to clear code
2 Disconnect the battery
3 Tape over light
4 Fix it

those are pretty much your options

Re: Service Engine Soon Light

Don't skimp out on fixing the car.

Do it once and do it right. Figure out why the code is coming up.

If you keep "fixing" things and the CEL still comes on, you didn't solve your problem.

Re: Service Engine Soon Light

Um...the CEL (check engine light) and service engine light are the same thing.
