Question about Cars & Trucks
The best way is to get the code or codes and repair the problem.The only other way is to have a code scanner and clear the code or codes that are in the ECM(engine control module).The problem with just clearing the code is that the light will come back on.Auto Zone or O`riellys will tell you what the code or codes are but they will not clear it for you.They will not charge for this.Also depending on the code or if the light is flashing you could be doing more harm to the vehicle or it could be using more gas.Let me know what codes you have and I can look them up and explain them to you or tell you what could be causing the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

remove the battery terminals for about 15 mins, that will reset your computer, if you turn it back on and get the same check engine light there is an underlying problem, only certain codes will trigger that light to come on, you'll need to take it to a mech to be sorted sorry to say, hope all goes well for you, matt

SOURCE: how to rest check engine light
Hello. Actually there are a couple of ways to reset the check engine light. there are a couple ways to turn off the check engine light. The first way, which is the preferred way, is take it to a mechanic who will use a scanner and clear the codes, or you can simply unhook your battery for a few seconds, and then hook it back up. Either way will work, but if you didnt fix the problem it will come back on. NOTE: some auto zone stores, and other parts stores with scanners will do this for you as a free service.
