How to reset "check engine Light"

Can anyone tell me how to reset the check engine light because the dealer didn't do it when I took it in for a oil change.

Thanks[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

check your owners manual, i remember something like hold the odometer button for 10 sec while car is off and than turn car on and thats it, but double check the manual

Do you mean the Maintenance Required Light or the actual Check Engine Light? Cause if it's the "Check Engine Light", you need to take your car in to get inspected.

If it's just the Maintenance Required Light... macrossranma is right... push and hold down the odometer button.

It just actually happened to me.

You have to hold the odometer button in and turn the key but not all the way (dont start it) and wait for about ten seconds until it stops flashing and then turn the key off. Then it should be gone if you turn your car back on.

Good Luck![IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/IMG]
