Computer problem
2002 Ford Explorer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 88,000 miles

My check engine light came on so I checked my spark plugs and they were bad so I changed them. Now the light won't go off. How do I reset the check engine light.

Do you
have the same problem?

Take it to autozone and have them check the codes and then reset the light. Get back to us with the codes.

I have the same problem. I just moved to California and need to register my 2002 Explorer with the DMV, but first I had to take it to a shop for emissions testing. It passed the emissions part of the test, but was failed due to "MIL/Check Engine Light". The Smog Check Vehicle Inspection Report (VIR) shows, "OBD Fault Code: P1401 Manufacturer specific code". What does this code mean? Is it something I can remedy myself? I appreciate any advice. Thanks.

YES THIS IS SOMETHING YOUY CAN FIX YOURSELF, FOR ABOUT 40 DOLLARS. Go to auto parts store and ask for a dpfe sensor and install it. It has 2 rubber hoses going to it. Very easy and self explainatory. It what senses the egr valve operation

I changed the sensor and the check engine light is still on. Do I need to drive it around for a while for the light to go out? Or do I need to reset it somehow? Thanks.
