How can I reset the engine warning light on a 2006 mondeo estate manually without the diagnostic computer? If light comes back on I will take to dealer but don't want to do it if it is only a minor glitch

Tried leaving brake and accelerator on, looked for spanner button behind glove box, left disconnected from battery for 15 mins
Hello and Welcome to justanswer...Are you talking about the "engine management light" - or the "service indicator " light ??Rgds, MIKE...........................................
It appears to be the engine management light. May uinderstanding though is the ford mondeo estate (diesel) does not have a separate service light.) I do get it regularly serviced but I don't trust the place I was going to and am now changing.
Hello again - thank you for your reply..Ok... yes, you can't just reset the EML - engine management light.. If its on - its because the ECU - management computer has detected a fault somewhere.. and until that is traced using diagnostic equipment - and sorted out... the light will just keep coming on..I can confirm too that diagnostic equipment is needed.As you refer too - the Mondeo diesel does have another light that acts as a fault light in certain circumstances.. this is the whirly glow plug light...If this comes on and flashes, that indicates management faults too - and needs to be diagnosed likewise as above...You do need a garage that understands this and that has the correct equipment to deal with it as above / as needed per circuit.I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - but do ask me if you need anything more..
Kind Rgds, MIKE
