Default Engine Management Light

Hi everyone, really sorry if i have put this in the wrong place but couldnt find anything that related to my problem.

I have a 2001 X Reg Limited Edition Cruiser 2 Litre Auto, my Engine Management Light came on, and we figured out the problem was the Cam sensor, i have had this replaced, but the Engine Management Light won't go off, i have had it connected to the fault finding machines, No error codes are now found and everything is now working as it should but the Engine Management Light is still on, Does anyone know if there is another way i can get this light turned off, i have disconnected the battery for a few minutes as that was suggested but still on.

Any help would be appreciated

Thanks Mike

Mike,

If you take off the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes, that will reset the computer and clear all the codes that are stored. Also step on the brake pedal while the battery cable is disconnected. That will get rid of residual charge built up. The PT might run a little ruff for about a minute when you start it but it's just the computer re-learning your set-up.

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Mike,
I should have added that there ARE one or two fault codes that have to clear themselves. After the computer sees that the fault is no longer there after a particular amount of starts, the MIL light will be turned off. Your may be one of those faults.
