You need to open the hood (well, yeah!) then unscrew the light cover from the inside with you fingers, unclick the retaining metal wire that holds the bulb in place. replace the lightbulb (careful not to touch the glass part with your hands. If it gets dirty, it will burn faster) re-clip it in place and screw back the plastic cover. Now, if it is on the driver's side, you'll have to remove the battery first to reach in.

You are going to need some more information. Head bolt torque for one. I would recommend a trip to a parts store to get a manual that will answer your question and help you with future repairs.

Check engine light on and code p6505

If you have a 2004 Heritage or Lightning, I would agree with richard3707 in cleaning / replacing the IAC. I would also suggest cleaning the MAFS ( Mass AirFlow Sensor ), and checking the rubber vacuum line elbow on the back of the intake as well.

The IAC is on the back of the throttle body ( need to remove the plastic throttle body cover to see it ).

The rubber elbow is just above it ( line running to the right in the picture ).
The MAFS is in the air filter housing, Take apart the air filter as you are replacing it, and clean it with MAFS cleaner ( or throttle body cleaner that is MAFS safe, it will specifically say on the can if it is ).

If you have a 2004 New Body Style, then this more than likely the Throttle position motor that is having an issue.
In the 3 valve motor, the engine is throttle by wire and the throttle is opened by the throttle motor, which sounds like it is not. You can try cleaning it, to see if it is just stuck on idle open setting.

Oil control valve

You mention the oil control valve,so you have a 2 litre petrol engine with cvvt then?Sometimes you can remove the oil control valve and clean it out and re install it and an oil change with nice clean oil is good for them too.The ocv valve is located when plastic engine cover is removed,on the front rh top of the cyl head with an electrical plug on it.
