Resetting Engine code for 2001 elantra GLS

Discussion in 'Hyundai Elantra / Lantra' started by whosyodaddy1019, Nov 8, 2006.

  1. My "Check Engin" light came on today. I opened the hood to find that
    when i got the oil changed about a month ago, they didnt put the
    radiator overfill cap back on so the take was neerly empty. I fill the
    radiator up to the correct fill line but the light is on. My thoughts
    are that I would need to reset the error code in the computer but am
    unsure exactly how to do this. I new with older model cars, you just
    had to take a paper click and push it into reset button. I have never
    accually done this. Does anyone know how and where to reset the error
    code without having to take it into the shop.

    If you have a local Auto Zone they will read the codes for you. You need to
    see what the code is to determine the area of trouble I don't see the
    overflow tank causing check engine light. Anything is possible

    If the lamp was coming on because your car was overheating, you shouldn't
    have any problems with disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to
    clear the code.

    If you don't think you lost enough coolant to cause the car to overheat,
    and I don't think you should overheat just from not having the reservoir
    cap off, you should have the codes checked.
