I have a 2007 Civic DX-G and recently after playing with it I forgot to hook up all the cables before trying to start the engine and now the check engine light stays on all the time ( all cables are hooked up now ). so I was wondering if there is a way to reset the light myself. I will hate to have to take it to the dealer for something like that as it will kill a lot of my time, which I don't have enough of as it is.
I read about a fuse you can pull out for a while which resets the light but I guess that is valid only for the older ones as it didn't work for me.
I already did and all I found was about older models. None of the methods worked for me that is why I am posting.
But thanks for the suggestion anyway, I am sure it is a very helpful one for many people !
Thats only to drain whatever charge your car has stored anywhere, its that "little extra" if you will. Prolly not necessary but if your in your car to turn your lights on why not pump the brake once or twice?

I tired the remove negative wire method and it work for now no need to pump the breaks any remaining power goes away quickly mines did!! will follow up and see how long it lasts........oops forgot to tell you guys that i never found out what caused the CEL to come on inthe first place.
