The car actually measures the viscosity of the oil while you are driving and running the car when you change the oil the light will be reset.

How would I get the engine light off in a 2001 Honda civic coupe?

I have a 2001 DXG and had the same issue. For me it was the maintenance required light so I don't know if that's what you need or not. It means it needs an oil change or whoever did the last oil change forgot to reset the light. There is a certain machine that can reset the light, most mechanic's have them. If you can't find anybody with the machine I suggest you ask next time you go for an oil change. Hope this helped you!
