engine management light

Post by waz on Mon Sep 10, 2012 7:53 pm

Daughter has a Daewoo Matiz, the engine management warning light is on. The problem has been sorted but I can't get the warming light off. Is ther a way to do it or does it need to go to someone with a diagnostic machine to disable it.

Yeah you need an OBD2 scanner, and simply go to the code reset function in the menu's on the screen.

I use one these:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Vgate-VS900-Service-Reset-Airbag/dp/B0063FTZAC?&linkCode=wsw&tag=bargspar-21

its paid for itself a million times over now.

But any one should do the job as long as it support the correct protocol that the Daewoo uses, I'm not sure which that is but the scanner above does every protocol on the scene.

If you've got a mate at a garage or something they should have something. Those £1500 snap-on scanners are more trouble than they are worth!

Sorry it's this one I've got

http://www.amazon.co.uk/VgateScan-Reader-Scanner-Protocol-Diagnostic/dp/B008DO5LG8?&linkCode=wsw&tag=bargspar-21

I've used it on Toyota's, Suzuki's, VW's, Honda's, Daewoo's and that bastard fiat the other week.

Make sure the one you get does the follow protocols:-

Can bus / ISO15765-4
KWP2000 / ISO14230-4
ISO9141-2
SAE J1850 VPW
SAE J1850 PWM

It'll most likey work on either canbus or KWP

First though what was the fault? If it was something to do with the ABS or Airbags they can be harder to reset requiring manufacturer specific equipment although when I did an ABS fault on a daewoo few months back that just reset without problems. That fiat mind you was a whole different ball game.

If it was just something like an engine sensor or coil pack fault the scanner above should reset that no problem.

Same time, the way cars are now, I'm sure you'll use that scanner a fair few times over the next decade.
