Service Engine Light

I just hit 52k and my service engine light went on. I just had service and I know this is just a relay. Can I reset it myself?

thanks

Yes. I thought that was closer to 80K though?

Behind the instrument cluster there is a brown relay, there is a hole in the bottom of it, you insert a paper clip into it and it will extinguish the light.

I did not know the mileage was different based on the truck..... Came up around 80K on my Disco! ;-)

Anyway, just for future reference: http://www.defendersource.com/faq/En...lt.html#Lights

BTW, I believe it will come up every 80K / 52.5K since this is a reminder that you have to replace (check?) your cats.

I think it's every 80k KM which is about 50K miles.

Additionally, a few months ago either Rovers North or Atlantic British had the little brown relay things for sale for like $15-20. I tried the paper clip reset trick, but mine wouldn't reset, so I replaced it. (And it had been done at least once before from how it looked.) Other sellers I found online wanted a ton of dough for them, as much as $125 as I recall. Should you need to buy one, look with RN/AB before spending too much cash.

Incedentally, I "caused" the light while digging around behind my dash checking for VDO install indeas and found the broken/cut lead to the dummy light. Reconnecting it, I gave myself the light. I'm never a fan of bypassing hazard lights to prevent their presense, but it worked for someone else with my triuck. I obviously spend the time and $15 to fix it when the paper clip didn't do it.
