    try disconnecting the battery for a good 30 minutes... it should reset the ECM, switching everything back to the factory default, turning off the light

    Or if you know a mechanic with a code reader have them hook it up and see if it's throwing a code. I think O'Reilly's will run a code scan for free. I just have one in the trunk of my car, I have issues with my transmission that causes the check engine light to turn on occasionally. I clear it quick whenever I get to where I'm going

    Yep as he said take to them and they'll read the code and clear it. You blew a fuse when you installed the aftermarket radio. Don't try to find it by pulling them out and looking at them, it can be blown and not look blown. Use a power probe or a Multimeter.

    Simple, yes, feasible, no... He will have to go through and reset all his settings the way he wanted them, and depending on how much he changed and what options are available on the car itself it could be a royal PITA, like my car.

    Whatever float's OP's goat, though. No skin off my balls either way

    Like I said, it depends on the vehicle. My old car used to just randomly reset all my settings, it happened about once a month. But it was a GM so I gotta give it a little slack

    EVERYTHING in my car is computerized, even as a 2001... Suspension firmness and steering effort are completely adjustable on the fly, for example. I have a setting that automatically tilts my side mirrors down when I shift into reverse. That's only a few of the functions that I can play with... Cadillac juuust started putting adjustable on-the-fly suspension on their cars a few years ago, yet my 2001 Lincoln has basically the same function, just with air bags instead of magnets.

    Reason #23455 why I love Ford Motor Company vehicles over GM
