Does my car need Bluetooth?

Can Spiffy Blue clear a check engine light?

Yes. Based on customer feedback, the latest version of the Spiffy app can clear the check engine codes. If you go to the vehicle diagnostics page, there is a "clear" button on the top. When you click it, it prompts a disclaimer and once you accept it clears the code and turns off the check engine light.
