Try a Chery dealer. If that鈥檚 not possible an auto electrician should be able to help.

How do you reset the service light on a Chery J3?

Hold down your trip meter button of your Chery J3 while turning the ignition key (but don't start the car). Hold down the trip meter button for 10 seconds, then turn the ignition key off.

Why won't my Chery J11 start?

You need to find another mechanic for starters. There is nothing out of the ordinary about the Chery that would stump a competent mechanic. If there鈥檚 no spark, check the ignition, and the engine computer. If you need parts simply go on-line and Google Chery parts and you鈥檒l find a number of suppliers.

Demonstrator purchased with rust spots, claim to fix it?
