Service Light On

Service engine soon is on. Connected OBII and message code was FC service interval reset. Tried resetting it with a snap-on computer, but it only erased the code, service engine light still on. What can i do to turn it off? And what else is this light for?

The service engine light normally means you are do for service. Sounds like you need an oil change.

Using that same process you can reset just about everything else, including the oil alert

I believe the service engine light also refers to emissions. The light came on for me once when I first got the car because my gas cap wasn't on tight enough. I think you can also take the car to an auto parts dealer like autozone, and have them clear it. IDK if this helps, but good luck!

Its the cats pajamas!
