Does anyone know of an easy way to disable the check-engine light for a bit?
I have a vehicle that I'll be selling soon. A couple of months ago, the check-engine light came on. I took the car to the dealer, and they said the codes were 300 and 302, which mean misfiring cylinders. I spent $500 to have a number of minor repairs completed (sparkplugs replaced, etc).
This week, the light came back on. I stopped by an AutoZone for a CheckEngine diagnostic, and the same codes came up as before. Since 60 days have passed, the dealer won't check the car for free, even though they clearly didn't fix the problem.
The car runs perfectly, so the Check-Engine light is just an eyesore at this point. Still, I think it will scare away buyers, even though nothing is wrong w/ the car. Do you know of a way to disable that light?
UPDATE: This is an old question, and I've moved on. I left the Check-engine light as-is, and traded the car in to a (different) dealer; I needed a bigger car for a new baby. I took a hit on the trade-in value because of the check-engine light, but I'm okay w/ it.
