The ONLY thing you can do is remove the bulb from the gauge assembly. Be warned though, this does NOT prevent the scanner from knowing there are codes.

Why not just replace or fix code coming up? That will clear code.

Right, find out what the codes are, most parts stores can do this and it's free, fix the problems.

If your wanting to do this to pass some inspection that won't work as they plug into the cars OBD port and everything is listed right there, besides if the light won't turn on when the key is first turned on it is an instant fail.
