If you're talking about the PCM (Powertrain Control Module) it must be reset using a scan tool. Or, if a problem that has triggered the check engine light has been successfully fixed it will reset itself once the computer (PCM) runs the diagnostics on the system and determines the problem is gone. To speed this process up keep your gas tank between 3/4 and 1/4 full. No more and no less. Then just drive normally for a few days. The check engine light will go off and after 40 cold start ups the code will be erased from the computer's history. HTH. -Jim
