DIY: Reset Check Engine Light without OBDII reader
Learn how to reset your Check Engine Light (CEL) without using an OBD II 2
scanner / reader tool. Will work on just about any car. Also referred to as
Service Engine Soon, and Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL).
This is very general and will work on any vehicle. Not just on this Honda.
If the light does turn back on, go to any auto parts store and ask them if
they can read the code on the computer. This is free most of the time and
will tell you where to look for the problem.
WARNING: Do not attempt to fool the company that gets you your vehicle
state inspection. After resetting your computer this way, you will lose
logged data. This shows up on their computer and will automatically fail
the inspection. The fix? Drive it around for a while, a day or two and you
will have the data back. Be warned, if you haven't fixed the issue, the
light will turn back on.

*This video is an EXPERIMENT I wanted to try on my car, and is for
INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content
shown in this video is not intended to encourage emissions test cheating.
I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!
Oh no! My check engine light is on. Now what?
Denny will tell you some main reasons the check engine light will go off.
He also explains how to avoid it from happening.
The triangle exclamation light is something to be taken serious. But don't
think that your car is going to blow up. The thing to remember is that your
car is an enclosed system. Check the obvious firsts: doors, gas cap, etc.

Check Engine Light Basics - EricTheCarGuy
If you have the code you can look up what it means here
Sorry about the camera focus on this one, whenever I use my wide angle lens
it tends to do this. Aside from that I have a lot of video shot that I
don't intend to post here because of time constraints, these videos will be
made available at a later date through the EricTheCarGuy website. I used
this video because I didn't have anything else this week that I could use
for the show and I like to do at least one a week if I can. I have lots
more scheduled so stay tuned in the coming weeks.
As for Check Engine Lights they come in all shapes and sizes, sometimes
they are easy to diagnose and others can be a bit more challenging. I plan
to do an entire series on this subject so don't consider this the last time
I will cover this. The point of this video is to familiarize yourself
with the basic hook up of a scan tool to read the codes stored in the on
board computer nothing more, I got a bit carried away with my O2 sensor
explanation and had to cut most of it. Much of what I cut from these will
also be available at a later date as a series of "Tips" that may be made
available on future shows or on DVD depending on the subject.
I hope this video is informative if you have any questions you can post
them as a response to this video or visit me at EricTheCarGuy.com,
