I just purchased a new 2002 MPV last month. The Check Engine Light came on at 2,700 mi. while driving on the freeway. I checked the Owner's Manual and, lo and behold, the gas cap hadn't been screwed on tight (a listed cause for the CEL coming on). Because the light didn't go out after I'd tightened the cap, I called the dealer and they say it won't go out by itself, that we have to bring it in for them to test and (if all is OK) turn out the light. This is ridiculous! The gas cap was loose! I can't take a car to the dealer every time the gas cap isn't tightened correctly. If the car can sense when the cap is off (via fuel system pressure?), why can't it also sense when it's on again? Is there any way to turn the CEL off short of a dealer visit? I miss my old (and simpler) van already! Thanks.

When we had a Mazda Tribute, the OBD II check engine light would reset after 2 or 3 cold starts. That is what the manual stated.

Should be the same with the MPV ... same engine.

It has to be cold starts, not parking for a bit and starting again.

I'm not sure about the MPV, but many cars will "reset" the light if you disconnect the battery for a few minutes. However, if the "cold cranking" works, then I would rather do that. It's always such a pain to have to reset your radio, etc.

I thought I heard or read that any OBDII vehicle will reset a CE light if the event that triggered it initially hasn't occurred in 3 or more on/off events. And I believe that Archangel is right, it has to be a cold start. I have also heard that you may have to wait until the gas tank is 3/4 empty.

So, basically, wait a day or two. If the light is still on, you could bring it in for them to read the code(s). I believe AutoZone may also read the code(s) for you too, if you happen to have one of these places near you.

Pulling the negative battery cable will work also, BUT you will lose radio presets, as well as any learned behavior that the transmission and ECU has saved over time. Your gas mileage may suffer for a tank or two (as it relearns) if you go the battery route.

What is "OBD"? Thanks for all the ideas!

Hooray! The Check Engine Light was gone today (Thursday). Very Happy Since it came on last Saturday, that's about 4 cold (morning) starts. Looks like Archangel's information (above) was on the right track. Thanks all!

I know that removing the negative cable worked with OBDI systems, but I think the newer OBDII systems like on the MPV still keep the code somehow even if the cable is disconnected.
