Learn How to Reset a Check Engine Light

No one wants to see their check engine light come on while they’re driving through Saddle River or Ridgewood. For some drivers, checking the gas cap or taking care of the causal issue at home is quicker and easier than scheduling a service appointment. Still, you might wonder what happens if your check engine light doesn’t go off automatically. If you don’t mind getting under the hood, it’s easy to learn how to reset a check engine light at home.

Rest Your Check Engine Light at Home

Before we go any further, we think it’s important to point out that your Jaguar check engine light won’t just come on by accident. Although some potential causes are quick and easy to fix, you should only reset your check engine light by hand if you know what caused the problem and you’re certain that you fixed it by hand.

If you do perform a manual reset, and your check engine light still comes on after you start driving, make sure to schedule service and have the issue resolved by an expert at our Paramus service department.

Reset a Check Engine Light: Disconnecting Your Battery

The easiest way to reset a check engine light is to disconnect the negative (black/-) battery cable and hold it to the side for 30 to 60 seconds. This will allow your internal diagnostics systems to reset.

If you’ve never disconnected your battery before, we’re happy to report that you only need a few easy-to-use tools. Grab safety glasses, a pair of gloves, and a wrench. You’re ready to get started:

  1. Turn your engine off, apply the parking brake, and open the hood.
  2. Locate your Jaguar vehicle’s negative battery terminal. Loosen the cable with a wrench, and pull it off. 
  3. Keep the cable in your hand for a minute or more, and then reconnect it with your wrench.
