Do you know if it's the same code that was originally there?
Did you clear the code after you did the repair?

No, will need to .

Ok, depending on the code, sometimes it has to be cleared and won't just go off once the repair is made. I usually clear the codes, then if the light comes back on check to see if it's the same code.
