unplug the ground cable, black cable, from the battery for at least 10 minutes....Reconnect after.....the check engine light should go off...............

in the fuse box...find the ecm fuse...pull it out for a few seconds then put it back in...this fuse may be located in the fuse box or under the hood with the relays...it will be labled ecm or something similar to that...this will save you from disconnecting the battery cable and having to reset all your radio functions.If you can't find the fuse just simply disconnect the negative battery cable for a minute then reconnect it..this will clear the code...but you will have to reset the radio and clock.Hope this helps

the easiest way i know is to unscrew one of the battery terminals and count to 10, this resets the onboard computer. It also sets your clock back to 12, so i hope you know how to reset your clock and maybe your radio presets too. Ken's answer is probably better, above.

i own a repair shop,and this one has to be re-set by a dealer or any auto zone can do it for free for you,its a good free service they provide,and there good at what they do,this will take it off of it,other wise any one else will charge you for it,good luck i hope this help,s.,,PS any vehicle made after 95 ,you cant pull the battery cable and clear it off,it don't work on the new ones.

Did you change it or did a shop? Take it to a shop to get it scanned and cleared. If the light comes on again then it needs further attention.
