My check engine light came on last week. I filled it up the previous day. I tightened the gas cap when the light came on and light remained on. The engine runs great so when I got home I disconnected the battery. The check engine light went away and never came back after I reconnected the bat. Two questions: where can I read the error code from? and did I erase the code by disconnecting the bat. Its been over a week now and nothing. Thanks. Carl

Re: check engine light (carlflug)

If the gas cap was indeed not clicked on 3 clicks and is now, the CEL will not come back.\

You obviously need a code reader to read your codes.

Not knowing what car you have,
I have no way of telling you where to plug in!

Re: check engine light (JRL)

three clicks? i know i clicked it once or twice but not thrice. didnt know anything past the first click did anything.

code reader, i was afraid of that. why didnt they make it accessable from the panel display, all kinds of info there. oh yeah the model is 2001 xc70.

i downloaded what the fault codes are, now i just need to find out which one it is. i really dont think this thing is going to come back though.

Huh?? If there is more than one code than post them all here so we can see what's going on.
