If you reset the computer then the Check Engine light comes back on, it just means that the problem still exists. You need to use a code scanner, find out what's wrong, fix the problem properly THEN see if the light comes back on. Often when the problem is properly repaired the light will go off by itself and you don't need to clear the code.
