I cannot afford to have a mechanic charge me an arm and a leg right now to fix something I am hoping can be reset.
Are there any experienced folks out there that can give me some good advice to reset this??
Thanks in advance.
Well i had it come on in my 02 at around 40 or 50K. Luckily Ford had sent me a letter stating that they were extending the warranty on some part for the Emissions or EGR system, I'm not sure what the part was. But it was the reason for my light and was fixed for free.
Go to Auto Zone, They can scan your OBD port and give you the codes for it. They may even be able to reset it. Only thing is I would guess after a few drive cycles if it's not fixed it will probably come back.
