Hi, I have a focus diesel 56 plate.

Can anyone tell me how to turn engine management light off other than taking to a garage.

Long story short had a faulty sensor which I have changed now car runs fine but still has engine management light on as needs resetting!

I have read unplugging battery can do it (tried for 10 mins but light still on).

Or is there a fuse for the engine management light, I do not have a manual to check fuses unfortuantly.

Any advice would be great thanks.

I believe there's a sequence involving the pedals when turning the ignition on but not starting the car.

Found it.
Try this and see how you go.

1. Close all doors. 2. Turn the ignition key to position II. 3. Simultaneously press the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal and hold for a minimum of 15 seconds. 4. The oil change reminder indicator will turn off. This confirms that the reset procedure has been correctly completed.

Thanks for the offer mate, I work at Cheshire oaks so always down that way!

Anyway I tried unplugging the battery - does not work
Also the pedal thing, did not work either.

Anyway I was very lucky to have a friendly local garage that turned the light off with no charge so very happy now!

Thanks for all the input and advice, I do like this forum, lots of helpful people!
