How to Reset the Service Engine Soon Light on the 1995 Chevy Blazer

by Jonathan Shaffer

Your 1995 Blazer will display a warning light, or "check engine" light, when it detects an issue with your engine. After the repair has been completed, the light will usually go away. If it does not, the problem may persist or you may need to turn the light off manually. This process is fairly simple and you can do it at home. If the light remains on after the following steps, have your mechanic diagnose the problem further.

Open your Blazer's hood. If there is no hydraulic lift to hold the hood up, use the provided lift bar.

Locate your Blazer's battery, located on the driver's side of the engine compartment.

Locate the negative battery terminal. It will be labeled in black or marked with a "-" symbol. The positive terminal is labeled in red or marked with a "+" symbol.

Remove the wire that is bolted onto the negative battery terminal by removing the bolt with your wrench.

Wait one minute. This allows the Blazer's internal computer to reset. Once the battery is re-connected, the computer will run its diagnostics and if the problem has been fixed, the light will not come back on.

Bolt the negative power cable back onto the negative battery terminal.

Close your Blazer's hood.

Warning

  • Do not touch both the positive and negative battery terminals at the same time. This will cause an electrical shock.
