Default Check engine light came on...

I just installed a throttle body spacer and a cold air intake and my check engine light is on...Does anybody know how I can either turn off my check engine light or somehow fix it. Thanks

Default Re: Check engine light came on...

i suggest having the codes pulled and we might be able to help you figure out why the CEL came on. you can reset the codes by disconnecting your battery for a few minutes but that wont fix the problem.

PS. you dont need to make multiple threads about the same topic.

Well, if it isn't too late to remove and return both of those add-ons, I would just do that. Neither actually serve any functional purpose. You have a vacuum line disconnected or the PCV hose is not hooked up. Or the MAF isn't properly in place.
