Please help somebody ?

Rocky, if the hammer trick doesn't work, pull the codes to find out why.....http://www.obd-codes.com/faq/read-gm-2-digit-obd-codes-free.php
The best way to fix a check engine light is to repair the problem that is causing the light to illuminate. The second best way is to use a hammer.
Pull the codes, find out what they are telling you replace or repair the offending component or wiring, clear the computer and road test, if the light stays off then on further action is required at this time, if the light comes back on then get the code and proceed as before. Note as your vehicle gets older the check engine light will start to come on more just due to the vehicle normal wear and tear, but you need the light to warn you of engine management problems, and if your in a state that requires testing a nonfunctional check engine light is a instant fail.

I had it tested at oReallys he said it's the obd gone bad where you plug the tester in at
He could not get a reading
Could take the blurb out if I could get to it I'm in va they don't check this
I really need a nother obd reader put in but thanks yual for your help
If they couldn't get a reading and the plug it self is in good condition then you could have either a blown fuse, bad system grounds or the ECM is in failure mode, and will eventually shut down. You could try the paper clip and see if you get the flash out codes.
A piece of electrical tape over the light would do the trick if you don't want to actually fix the problem. Hopefully it's something minor if you went that route.
