Question about 1998 Mazda Protege
Your local auto parts store can reset your computer with an obd-ll scanner(as long as check engine light is on)..or you could simply disconnect the battery for about 15 min. This will not mask mechanical issue with your catalytic converter or 02 sensors whichever case may be..It will only clear the code and give your car's computer a chance to re-run its emmision tests..Check engine light will be back if an emmisions part has failed or needs repair..All this to the best of my knowledge with the information provided.....Hope this helps and best of luck with your automotive endeavors.
btw, the autostore(advance auto, autozone, etc...) will normally give you a printout of your cars obd-ll codes(which cause check engine light to illuminate) if you ask. They may even offer up some guidance but keep in mind they"re trying to sell parts.
