How do I reset the computer in a 99 Ford Escort?
ok - I'm a car TARD, so please explain things c l e a r l y.
Here goes: I'm trying to sell or trade in my 99 Ford Escort, the Check Engine light is on, but I took it to the mechanic - he said it's fine (the light keeps going on if I let the gas go too low due to a faulty fuel sensor), but he forgot to do the reset thingy. Now they're closed until Monday, and I need to get this done ASAP (who's gonna offer me a decent trade in price with the check engine light on??).
I just know there's got to be an easier/better way to do this than disconnecting the battery, right??? Some secret button or something? Magic password? Pixie dust?
I hate the idea of having to find a new garage to take it in just for that...
