Nobody likes seeing their check engine light so if you are wondering how to turn off check engine light ,you came to the right place. One of the most common issues that car owners face after
performing a necessary repair on their vehicle is the persistence of the Check Engine Light, or malfunction indicator lamp. Many times, this is due to the mechanic simply forgetting to hook up the handheld check engine device to your car which turns off the light as well as reset the code. If you find yourself with a Check Engine Light on that you feel shouldn’t be, the easiest way to turn off check engine light is to take your vehicle to an auto parts store such as Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, they will scan your check engine light for free which will turn it off!
While you are there, check to make sure that it is not actually indicating a se
parate malfunction that you may have been unaware of before, or is new. If all is well, after turning off and resetting the Check Engine Light, it should stay off and your car should run like a dream! However if they reset your check engine light and after 30-40 miles of driving it comes back on it means that whatever your mechanic fixed was not causing the check engine light to come on. Additionally, sometimes there are multiple reasons why check engine light came on, and you may have gotten unlucky and picked the wrong one! This can happen to the best of us, and we know it’s no fun, but on the bright side at least the part you replaced is brand new and won’t be malfunctioning anytime soon, we hope! Once your mechanic repairs your car, it’s best to get the malfunction indicator lamp turned off as soon as possible in order to make sure that your mechanic fixed the issue that was causing the check engine light to turn on.
