Answers :

Your owners manual should explain the battery reset procedure

May have to go to a repair shop & look it up in their data base
& write it down

The Euro Cars require more nonsense like that than domestic
& asian ones, but they are all going that way

I have a 1998 Land Rover which will not start after I left the lights on for one hour. Battery operates horn, lights, and door locks just fine. The last time this happened, a mechanic came and said I could reset the starter using the buttons on the ignition key. It seemed to work for him but I have been turning the locks on and off the way he said he did but I am getting no results. The dashboard lights up but it does not start. Any suggestions?

The 1st thing to do is try and charge the battery and then have it tested, just because the lights work and other functions that does not mean there is enough energy avil in the battery to crank the starter, it uses at least 100 am ... 1998 Land Rover Range Rover

Code p0017 came up on my 2008 CTS. My mechanic told me that it was a timing chain problem. I took it to cadillac today. They told me it had to do with either how often I changed the oil, or I had the wrong oil put in. They also said that the light kept coming on because it had never been reset. I know that's not right, because my guy reset it! By the way, after they "reset the computer" the light came on again on the way home? So what's really going on?

My maintenance required light changed from green (slowly) to red. i am a few hundred miles overdue for an oil change, which i'm doing today- how do I reset that light? I believe the oil change factor is the reason for the light change, because it's happened that way before when I brought it in to be changed. To save $, I've started doing the oil changes myself, but have no idea how to reset that thing.  Also (in case it isn't due to needing an oil change) what might that light be indicating?

I have a VW touran diesel 1.9. Recently there was a brake pad warning light indicated on my dash board, so I took it to my closest gargae to check. They replaced two new brake discs and the brake pads. However, they could not find a way to reset the warning light. So even though it is fixed, the warning light is still on my dash board. Do you know if it can be reset without going to the dealer?

My daughters 2002 Tahoe has no brake lights. Bulbs are good checked the fuse under the hood=good, also checked the fuse under the back seat labeled brake, it was good also.

By the way, still no brake lights...turn, direction, and running lights are good. Also the brake light over the back window
