To reset the service light on a 1999 Nissan Altima first pop the hood of the vehicle open. Prop the hood up and locate the battery, then proceed to disconnect the negative battery terminal for five seconds. The ECU should reset turning off the check engine light.
The service engine light is the same thing as a check engine light.
You can drive the car but should have the vehicle checked soon as possible. BUT if the service engine soon light is flashing, stop the vehicle when it is safe to do so then shut off the engine immediately. If you continue to drive the vehicle with the service engine soon light flashing you will do catastrophic damage to the catalytic converter(s).

why service engine soon light on 1999 mustang
With out knowing what code you have set, that question can not be answered. Some codes can be caused by failures that can be damaging to the engine.
If the light is not flashing you can drive it until you can have it repaired. If the check engine light is flashing, park it. Otherwise you will do catastrophic damage to the catalytic converter costing several hundreds of dollars to replace.
The service engine soon is the same as a check engine light. It has nothing to do with an oil change.
There are pages of things that will turn the check engine light on. You need to have it checked for codes.
AnswerTake the negative battery cable off for about 5-10 min and the check engine light should reset. Make sure the problem is fixed that caused the check engine light to come on, are it will just come back on after driving a couple of times.and fart in your in face!
