First be sure that its the engine light and not the "service" light. the service light will usually illuminate if its time for an oil change. if its the service light ur owners manual should tell u how to reset it. if its ur engine light then try disconnecting ur positive battery cable for 1 minute. that should reset ur ecm and get rid of the engine light. if the engine light comes back on then have a diagnostic scan done to determine whats causing it.

Take the negative battery terminal off the battery for one minute. Then replace the Battery terminal carefully, always use caution when taking off the positive battery terminal, and make sure the metal wrench you are using does not touch a metal part on the car. Always take off the negative battery terminal for one minute, then replace the negative battery terminal. This should clear your fault code and automatically reset your check engine light. If your check engine light come's back on. Your vehicle has another fault code that need's servicing on your vehicle. Sincerely Crystopper.
After replacing the gas cap .. unscrew the terminal from the battery for a minute. The easiest one is the one away from air intake from the air filter box. Just set it aside gently. Of course you need to reset your clock and your radio stations after screwing the wire back on.

If you just simply want to say make a check engine light go off you can just disconnect the battery for ten minutes and then reconnect it. But if you mean re flash then that has to be done by a dealer most likely.
The battery cable trick is the oldest shitiest trick in the book it solves nothing but delaying a problem and erasing the ck engine light.... I've been up and down the Pontiac G6 from no start no crank issues to climate control to pc problems these cars have way to many issues that should have been recalled of course the reason these things weren't recalled is bc GM would owe some of you guys a new car. I can help with about any G6 problem but some things aren't worth fixing
The 2007 Pontiac G6 engine compartment fuse block is located on the driver's side of the engine compartment, near the battery. The wiring circuits in Pontiac G6 are protected from short circuits by a combination of fuses, circuit breakers and fusible links. This greatly reduces the chance of damage caused by electrical problems. Below diagram and table shows 2007 Pontiac G6 Engine Compartment Fuse Panel, Relay and the Circuit Protected. The fuse is in location 50
Well lets see - resetting the Check Engine light will not, in itself, have anything to do with now not having any heat from your heater.
Why the Check Engine light was on in the first place may have a lot to do with it.
If your engine is low on engine coolant (antifreeze) your heater will not work. Low coolant levels and/or engine overheating will also set fault codes in your computer and turn the Check Engine light on.
It is NEVER good to reset a Check Engine light without properly diagnosing and repairing the reason it was on. At best, it could wreck your catalytic converters, making it extremely expensive to get through an emissions inspection. At worst, it could cost you an engine.
