1. First time you can try this simple procedure:
1.1. Ensure ignition switched OFF.
1.2. Wait for at least 3 minutes.
1.3. Disconnect battery earth lead for at least 10 minutes.
1.4. Reconnect battery earth lead.
NOTE: Disconnecting battery may erase memory from electronic units (e.g. radio, clock).
NOTE: Disconnecting battery earth lead may cause driveability problems until the engine management system relearns basic values!
This is applied in order to Engine Control Module (ECM) resetting without having any diagnostic equipment.
2. If the problem still remains, then you need to access the ECM using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector (DLC) of the vehicle, in order to pull out all Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC) memored. Then you will be full informed about bad components, and you will be able to repair & replace bad pieces and reset the ECM. Then the check engine light will turns OFF and engine runnings fine.
