OK, I hope this is a minor problem. While my wife was driving today the check engine light came on and it's staying lit. I called the dealer and they said not to worry, that it's pretty common. WTF! I did not buy a brand new car to have the check engine light stay on. Anyways they said drive til Wednesday when we have an appt. Til then can someone please tell me how to reset the light? Thanks.

I think you need to have a special tool in order to get rid of the 'check engine' light. <br><A HREF="http://www.ipdusa.com/ProductsList.aspx?subSubCategoryID=590" TARGET="_blank">http://www.ipdusa.com/ProductsList.aspx?subSubCategoryID=590</a><p>It's kind of pricey, but if you work on the car yourself, it could come in handy.

For a 98 model, you'll need the special tool described previously. For 99 or later models, any generic OBDII scanner should do it.<p>
