Check Engine Light 2004 Mustang

My check engine light was flashing, along with ABS and the car would sputter, so I took the car to AZ and they said possible the crank sensor or plugs. I have changed both and the car does run much better, and does not sputter but the light will not go off. Can anyone tell me how to turn it off?

Take it back to AZ and they can cancel the light with thier diagnostic equip.....if the problem is taken care of.

It could possibly be a ignition coil going south on you also if what you done does not fix the problem completely. JMO

AZ has no idea why the light is on. All they have is a code reader, and a parts monkey who likely has no automotive repair/diagnostic training. If the MIL is flashing, you have a serious issue, that will cause catalytic converter damage. If you, can, post the codes here, and we will try to pin it down for you.
