I did a oil change and engine light came on. Tried resetting ECU/ECM, but still on.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello,

Try to turn the key to the on position without starting the engine, then push the throttle to the floor five times then shut the key off. This should work you may need to do the procedure more than once. Let me know.

Hey mate, I just tried it still same thing going on. Light comes while on idle but when accelerating it goes off. Could it be fuel pressure?
