How To- get this light to turn off? I am sure I did it once before with a key dance. I had the battery off for a while and it came back on. A google now only brings back something about a mysterious box above the brake pedal (which i think i found but i couldn't get it to turn the light off) and a dealer scan tool which are about $350 on eBay.

Is there an easier way?

The module is rest by inserting a small srewdriver blade or rod into the hole in the module to depress the reset switch which will turn off the lamp.

It's bolted to the brake pedal support above the column and above the brake pedal. Yep. Baby Blue. Same Van as yours. Mines installed upside down withthe connector on top. There's a little square hatch with a cover on the side oppisite the connector.

Good Wrenching

Yep, that the thing all right. I took it apart and plugged it back in so I could feel the switch being pressed. Nothing. Does not reset, engine on, engine off, press once for long time, lots of small presses. Nothing.

Taking it off altogether makes the light go out.....any consequences to that?

The procedure is what was listed in the FSM for reset. I doubt it will affect anything if left unplugged.

Thanks guys. I'll unplug it and go for a drive then, see what happens. I don't need the little light! Previous owner put tape across it so obviously had a problem getting it to turn off too. I tried bridging the dimples on the back of the circuit board in every possible combination; nothing doing that either.

There are a couple on eBay but not cheap for what it is.

Oh geez I remember those things. I think the little box had a 9V battery in it. ???

I think it was an EGR maintenance timer.
