Default SX4 check engine light

about a week ago check engine light came on and found code p0456 and found the gas cap was not all the way on. Tightened the gas cap and drove for about a week and the light has reset.

What i found strange is that while the check engine light was on the Cruise Control did not work, and whenever the car was started it would rev up to 2500 RPMs then would go back to idle. Since the light has reset the cruise control works fine and does not rev up when started.

Has any one run across this before.

Cool

That's actually the way the system works.

The correct process when you get a CEL , is to find out what the code means, fix the problem and then reset the code.

I've done that several times, with different codes. One was caused by the gas cap.
I have the "Scan Gauge II" which not only displays the codes, but also allows me to reset them.

It's a great addition to any SX4.


It can display four parameters at a time with a dozen or more possible.
Just a push of a button will display engine error codes.

Cheers Mate!

I have the same scan guage in my car and it has already paid itself off! I highly recommend purchasing it.

Hi to all
I have been reading this forum and I have a question about these ScanGauge II tools that seem to be recommended by some of you, question is can they reset the engine oil life from the 100% back to 0% ?

Engine oil life?
You're kidding, , right?
That's not an ECC parameter.

Don't you change your oil according to the Owners Manual?

Shadow-- did your Scanguage stay with the SX4 when you sold it? and what about your other "extras" like the bash guards ????

NO! I didn't leave a $159 Scan Gauge with the SX4.
Bash Guard? You mean "Rear Skid Plate" ???
That and the trailer hitch stayed with the SX4.
That little SX4 is going to make someone a very nice little car.
It's in as good mechanical condition as the day it was born.

I emailed Wayne at Scan Gauge and asked him what I needed to do to make my Scan Gauge II work with my new Kia Soul and he said all I had to do was go into Setup and change the engine size from 2.0L to 1.6L and I'd be good to go.

So I now have my Scan Gauge II connected to my Soul and it's working like a champ. And so is my Soul!


Everything else went with the SX4. (except my center arm rest and seat belt extenders @ $40 each) I even gave the dealer a new set of front brake pads that I had bought but not put on yet.
They were AC-Delco ceramics. The OEM pads had lasted me for almost 40k miles.

I just drove into the Kia dealership at about noon, for a fact finding visit and four hours later drove out in a brand new 2013 Kia Soul.


My car payments went down a little, my Car Insurance payments went down almost $30 per month and my MPG's went up considerably.
And the icing on the cake..... my dealer is picking up all my maintenance for the first year. That includes FREE Oil Changes and tire rotations.
They won't have to replace the engine air cleaner though, because I've already put in a K&N Air Cleaner.

I had my Soul out on a Jeep trail, where I used to go with my SX4, in 4WD and it handled like a dream. It actually has more ground clearance than the SX4. Go Figure.

I could go on and on, but this isn't my thread.

Cheers Mates!

I'm not sure if your being rude or you think I'm dumb
and yes I actually do change the oil per the owners manual, but in my owners manual it states that I have to reset the engine oil parameters back to 0% after an oil change, which is the reason I asked what the ScanGauge does.
It was only a question, if I didn't ask how was I going to find out ?

Sorry Dude! It sounded like a pretty dumb question for someone in the US.

There is no such thing on a 2009 SX4 here in the US.
Maybe in Denmark, but not here.

We just change our oil and filter, notate it in our maintenance record and go on.
There is no setting anything back to zero. Sorry if you felt insulted....that certainly was not my intention.

If you want the full story on the Scan Gauge II, then go to the web site and read up on it.
ScanGaugeII : Linear Logic - Home of the ScanGauge

Mine is set to monitor four parameters in real time. Miles per hour (speed), miles per gallon of gasoline, (US Gallons), the engine coolant temperature (Degrees Fahrenheit) and the battery voltage.
By pressing the white button next to any parameter, I can change that readout to any of a dozen or more parameters.

As was previously said, "my Scan Gauge II has already paid for itself".

Cheers Mate!

I have pulled the same code off my car twice, and it was the gas cap also. I was just looking into this problem. So it's normal for the cruise control not to set when the check engine light is on? This is not a malfunction of the system?
