The 2002 Dodge Intrepid uses a simple "check engine" light in the shape of an engine to tell you when there is a problem with any of the sensors, valves, or solenoids on the car that are vital to the proper functioning of the vehicle. When any of these components fail, you'll need to replace them with a new sensor, valve, or solenoid. Replacement parts can be purchased at most auto-parts stores. However, when you're done fixing you car, you'll need to know how to reset the check engine light.

Tools Used[edit]

Reset Check Engine Light[edit]

  • Locate the open port to the left of the fuse panel. This will be a small rectangular port that is large enough to accommodate the onboard diagnostic scan (OBD) tool plug.
  • Plug the scan tool into the OBD port.
  • Turn the ignition to "On" but do not crank the engine.
  • Press the "Reset" button on your scan tool to clear all engine codes and reset the check engine light. The light will blink several times before finally shutting off.
