Unhooking the battery terminal will typical clear the codes.

your best option is to have it reset using a scan tool, most parts stores can do this, sometimes disconnecting a battery cable can set off the antithieft system, so make sure you know how to turn it off before disconnecting a battery cable. the other option is you can remove all of the ECM and KAM fuses and wait a few minutes before putting them back in.

Buy a code reader or have a mechanic reset it. An auto parts store might do it for you as well.
