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.
2nd WARNING: As pointed out by Sam Cotts, if the problem is not fixed, the
light will turn right back on.

INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content

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!
