there is no button. you have to hook up a code reader to shut it off. you can try autozone, they should do it for free.

There is no reset light. vehicles new than 1995 have to be connected to a computer diagnose what the check engine light is on for and to clear the codes on the PCM.

Remove the positive cable for about ten minutes,this will reset the ecm/engine light,if it return,s,you will have to have it scanned.
