2006 Kia Rio LX
My check engine light has been on for about a week. Called the dealer and they quoted me $133 per hr to get code and basic check.
Checked around different garages and got estimates just to get the code from $100 to $113.
Took it to the dealer this am and made an appointment for basic check in 2 weeks from now.
Came back home and thought for a 2nd time, let me check the net one more time.
Found this site and took the advise from a poster that he just disconnected the neg battery cable. Let it stay off for a couple of minutes and after reconnecting it the light did not come on again.
I just did that and THE LIGHT IS OFF. HOOREY!!!
Thanks to everybody who makes the effort to help others, :iceslolanTHAT is why I came back and registered and posted my experience.
Sincerely, Stewart
