A code reader can be used to erase codes. Fix the problem or the light will come back on.


Yes you can, but if you have fixed the problem it will go out by itself after about 10 initial starts. Or if your car savvy then remove the power from the just the ECM by removing just those fuses, there are usually three and they are marked in the power distribution center, but like Regrets stated if the repair is not done the light will turn right back on.
