You can reset the Check Engine light by using an OBDII diagnostics utility machine. However, I would highly recommend fixing the problem that is causing the situation, as you will have to continually reset the light in this manner every so often until the problem is corrected. Besides the obvious "tighten the gas tank cap fully" trick, usually, when a car seems to be running fine but the Check Engine light is on, it's one of the cars exhaust sensors. Common culprits are: The O2 sensor in the exhaust system, or a deficient catalytic converter. Neither one is particularly good news, as both parts tend to be a bit pricey. Keep in mind that your car will not pass its next inspection if the catalytic converter is bad. Good luck!

Check oil light stays on


Your vehicle may have an "oil level" sensor built into the oil pan. If so, and the sensor is bad, the dash will constantly tell you that the engine needs more oil even if it does not. Checking the oil with the dipstick, a minute after the engine has been turned off on level ground is always the best way to check your oil. Try scanning the vehicles computer systems to see if there are any fault codes. The warning light may also be on a timer that just needs to be reset. The "Check Oil" light should be separate from the engine oil pressure warning light. As long as the engine oil pressure light stays off, you should be ok. Checking the oil pressure with a manual gauge would be a good idea as well.

Breaklights


1st get autozone to clear the code, (free) The only thing I can think of that goes out when car is off and on when lights turn on is the parking lights on the side, the wires could be touching in the conduit, start car and pull brake fuse out, if the lights stay on you have a short, if only the park lights stay on (double filiment) look at the lighting system, but if the brake and driving light stay on, sounds like an ecu problem.
