Turn your ignition switch on, do not start. Forcefully press the accelerator 3 times, the light will blink. Once it blinks and goes off, start your vehicle. This happens when you change your oil or have any type of service performed.

The check engine light is on and the shop owner said there is a way to reset because there is nothing wrong with the car

Check the owner's manual for instructions on changing the battery. Usually you can reset the computer by disconnecting one lead of the battery for about a minute. However, there are certain automotive audio systems with a removable front panel that become unusable if you do not follow the proper procedure (this is intended to make them worthless to thieves). The owner's manual will advise you on this if you have a factory radio of this type. It will also tell you how to "retrain" the computer after a hard reset.

Some cars have a small lead from the positive battery terminal directly to the engine computer. This has a latching connector in-line a few inches from the battery. Disconnecting this will reset the computer, and is simpler than removing the terminal lug from the battery.
