Learn How to Reset a Check Engine Light

If the check engine light comes on in your Land Rover, your first instinct should be to check the obvious culprits, like your gas cap and your oxygen sensor. If you’re sure that you’ve dealt with the problem, but your engine light doesn’t go off automatically, learning how to reset your check engine light manually may be the right next step! Find out how to do so with confidence by taking advantage of our guide, below.

If There Is a Problem, Have It Resolved

Your Land Rover warning lights won’t just come on for no reason. We know that scheduling service can occasionally be inconvenient or expensive, but ignoring the problem could lead to costly repairs. So, before you try to reset a check engine light, you should schedule service or investigate the following common problems at home.

Your check engine light may come on if:

  • Your oxygen sensor is malfunctioning or worn out
  • Your gas cap is not attached properly, and leaking fumes
  • Your mass airflow sensor isn’t working
  • Your spark plugs are worn out and need to be replaced
  • You’re dealing with an expired catalytic converter

If you believe you’ve fixed the problem, drive around Hoboken or Weehawken for 20 miles or so. The light should go off automatically, and if it doesn’t, it’s time to try a hard reset.

Reset Your Check Engine Light: Disconnect the Battery

In many vehicles, it’s possible to reset the check engine light by disconnecting the negative battery cable for a minute or so. Here’s exactly what you need to do:

  1. Turn off your vehicle and put on the proper safety gloves and glasses.
  2. Locate your battery under the hood and find the negative terminal. It will usually be marked by a black cap and/or a negative symbol.
  3. Use a wrench to loosen the negative terminal connector. You should be able to pull the cable off easily.
  4. Carefully hold it to the side for 30 to 60 seconds. Then hook everything back up as it was!

Here as well, you’ll want to spend some time driving around Fort Lee or West New York after you finish the job. If your engine light comes on again, there’s a deeper underlying issue.

While you’re under the hood, you may realize that it’s been a while since you checked your oil levels! Find out how to protect yourself today.
