Engine light came on after using a car wash


Asked by Chessmaster May 04, 2014 at 04:51 PM about the 2008 Mazda MAZDA6

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Engine is running fine. Very smooth. Just like before I had the car washed. Orange engine light stays on continuously. No reduction in engine performance. Starts first time. Good acceleration. Not over heating. Checked oil and water. All fine.

Thanks Shadi. I'll try that and see if that works.


Shadi, removed negative battery cable as advised. Worked perfectly. Just had to reset the DSC after. Very easily done. Just followed instruction in manual. Thanks for your help.
