Disconnect the battery for about a half hour. That MAY clear the codes for good.

i had the same problems. clean the air intake with a good product. also- i changed the fuel gas cap and my light quit coming on.

i had the same problem of coding. changed the oxygen sensor, cleaned the air intake but light kept coming on. shit with this for over a month. i finally got the solution. believe it or not. just change the thermostat. did mine a month ago and it looks like its okay.
