My husband's check engine light
My husband has to have his truck serviced every freaking time he goes to
emissions because his check engine light never stays off. He'll have it
repaired or whatever, they get the light to go out and error code, and not even
3 weeks later, it's back on again, and he drives it for the duration, and needs
to take it back in to get it off again. Please help us. 2001 Dodge Ram
See another mechanic....
If all the repairs are done and the car is running fine then I would have to say the ECM (Main Computer may be the issue, that would need to be checked as well..
Sounds like they're clearing the computer and sending you on your way. Then once the computer runs the diagnostics the light comes back on. Like Mark said, go someplace else!! HTH. -Jim
But when they do emissions test they can tell how many miles you go since a code as ben reset and require you to drive a minimum amount of miles before bringing it back in for testing. So just resetting the the code, you can't really get away with doing. You have no choice but to get it fixed for emissions testing.
Unless the emissions testing is done, ahem, unscrupulously by a private facility. It happens. HTH. -Jim
