Best Answer

you need to have it cleared with an OBD2 scanner. Most national chain auto parts stores have this service for free. (autozone, parts america, advance auto parts)

Chain auto store are not allowed to legally clear the codes. They can usually be cleared by disconnecting the battery for 10 minutes or so. Keep in mind that when you reattach you computer will have a readiness code until it completes its cycle. So any code you had previous, if not fixed, will return. You cannot pass any emissions test with a readiness code.
