You can generally have someone with a scanner I.E. Autozone, erase the codes so the light goes off but depending on what the problem is, it will return soon after. If its coming on due to an emissions issue like an O2 sensor it may stay off for a longer period of time but will still come back on once the ECU decides it can't automatically correct the issue. Is the "change oil" light on as well? Intrigues are known for electrical problems and sometimes after oil change no matter how many times to try to reset it, the oil life system won't reset. Another thing to try is to take of your gas cap and re-tighten it. A lot of GM cars will throw a check engine code if the EVAP system is not sealed propperly which includes a tight seal of the fuel cap. If the fuel cap tightening doesn't work I would advise getting it scanned as Tom suggested and fixing the issue. Its not going to get better, only worse but don't be intimidated by it, a lot of times its a simple cheap fix.
