Just disconnect the battery terminals for 5 to 10 minutes and reconnect. This will reset the computer and get rid of the lights if it can.

You wont get the light off unless it was installed correctly. Even if you pull the actual light out of the socket the computer will still pick up that it has an engine code showing. Basically you are screwed until it is done THE RIGHT WAY!

disconect ur battery for 5-10 minutes and that will take it off temporarily, but if there is a problem with the engine it will come back on.ur headers are gonna be the culprit for not letting u pass inspection.
