Re: Emmission Maintenance Light
I always hate to disagree with people here, because everyone here is really bright. You can indeed reset the light. On that module to the right of your accelerator pedal, is a small sticker - I think mine was silver. (The module is a brown tinted plastic - you can see inside it) When the little wheels inside that module go so far, it pushes a little wire over onto another wire, and makes the light go on. Remove the module, peel back that little sticker - it's maybe the size of your fingernail, and use a small tweezer or screwdriver to move the wire/spring/lever-thing back up on top of the wheel - once you look really closely at the module and the gears inside you'll know what I'm talking about. This will make the light go out. You should probably replace the cat, and look at the charcoal canister, that kind of thing. Or not, and wait to see if you fail emissions. I thought it was just a key-on thing, and came on after the key was on for so long. There's a whole bunch of gears inside that module. I just took mine out and took it apart (like any good Jeeper would do) [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] when the light came on. I never put it back in. Anyway, that's the way my 88 was.
