Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ This 2007 Subaru Outback showed up with a few problems, one of them was a check engine light. The codes were P0137, P0037, and P2096. They all related to the secondary O2 sensor. In this video I show the procedure I went through in order to diagnose and repair these codes. All you need is a scanner and a DVOM. So, if you have a vehicle with a CEL, even if it's not a Subaru, you can use the information in this video to help resolve the problem. Here are some other videos you might find helpful.

How To Reset Your Check Engine Light with no special tools
If an auto repair store isn't near by and you've done your car repair you can reset your check engine light with this simple trick! No special tools required. If you are repairing your car to pass emissions then you'll need to drive your car around for about 50 miles so the car's computer can give an accurate reading, otherwise you'll be wasting your time and they'll tell you to come back after driving it around for an hour.

More Tutorials on my CHANNEL: http://www.youtube.com/user/moccina *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!





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.
