You will need to replace the part that is causing the CEL to come on, disconnecting the battery does not solve the problem, go to any Kragen auto or chain parts store and have a system test run to get the trouble code for the problem, this is free

2002 Lexus ES300 Check Engine Light

You can disconnect your battery for a short period of time, 5-10 minutes should do it. There is no guarantee that the check engine light will not come back on in time, but it will make it go away at least temporarily.If you go to Autozone, 99% of the time they will hook up a code reader and diagnose your problem. It may be a minor and/or inexpensive fix. Please vote appropriately and leave feedback. I hope this helps and good luck.

My car engine light is on and the problem code p2626

I'm about 99% sure this has to do with a faulty O2 sensor. This sensor is usually located around the header of your car, or down more on your exhaust. Try disconnecting your battery for 30 mins, hook it back up, and start your car again. This will erase the error. See if it comes in again.

How do you reset the check engine light on a 2003 toyota corolla

Disconnect the battery negative cable for 1 min 30 seconds. If it comes back on, a local parts chain store will read your code for free in hopes of selling you the part for the repair.

Check engine light on

U can either turn it off with a engine scan tool or disconnect the battery for 5 min's, if u disconnect the battery u may activate your anti-theft systems, so I recommend u have it turned off with a scan tool. A quick note: If the problem in the engine controls that turned the light on is not repaired the light will come back on in 20-30 miles.
