Default I need help with an engine light for an 01' Acura Integra LS?

I just bought it 7 days ago and the check engine light has been on, I turned my fuel cap 3 clicks and the light is still lit. I tried looking for that button under the dash, etc. but I guess my car doesn't have it. Any ideas?!

UPDATE: I went to get my oil changed and radiator replaced, even they couldn't turn my light off and tell me the code, because it's an "older" car. WTF.

Get the codes read by a local garage. It will usually tell you exactly what's wrong with the car.

Many different reasons the light is on.Something is causing your emissions system to malfunction.If you can get a DTC(Diagnostic Trouble Code).I can help further.I'll check back later for up-dates.

They lied to you. An older car is pre 1995. Take you cat to Pep Boys and they will do a free ECU code check.
