You can't reset it. That light is on because there's a problem with the emissions system,like a bad o2 sensor & such. Go to your local autozone & have them pull the trouble code out. Message back for the fix & the light will be out.

You are talking about the VSA activation indicator (triangle with exclamation point in the middle):
This indicator has three functions:
It comes on as a reminder that you have turned off the vehicle stability assist (VSA) system.
It flashes when VSA is active.
It comes on along with the VSA system indicator (the rectangle with VSA in it) if there is a problem with the VSA system.
This indicator normally comes on for a few seconds when you turn the ignition switch to the ON (II) position, and when the ignition switch is turned to the START (III) position.
Hope this helps you understand the problem.

the check engine lamp is not affected by things like tyres, brakes etc. It shows that the vehicles engine management system had detected a fault with the engine or engine sensors. Check the engine for broken or disconnected wiring (maybe it was disconnected during the replacing of the hoses but not reconnected). If you fail to locate anything, check the manual for the correct fault code retrieval procedure or take the vehicle to a professional. Tyres may affect your ABS system or Airbag systems but they usually have their own warning lamp and are unrelated to the check engine lamp..

The vsa and check engine light cam on because
their is a fault in the system that needs to be looked at.To be on the
safe side i would check the oil and transmission fluid .
Try doing a reset. Disconnect battery for a minute, this will clear the code ( light ). If the light comes back then take it auto zone or dealer to have the code read.
You can have the codes read for free at your local parts store like auto zone.
Have them scan it and let me know what the codes are.

Code P1399 is specific to Honda - it is an error code for "multiple variable misfires detected". P0301-P0304 are common OBDC codes for all cars, specifically "misfire in cylinder X".
You will get the P0301-P0304 codes on your OBDC reader when you plug it in (if actually errors), but will only find the P1399 if you select Honda as the manufacturer.
Just got these errors today on my CRV 2000. Now I have to figure out what is causing two of the cylinders to misfire.
