The check engine light can be caused by many different things. Auto parts stores have a reader that can tell you exactly where the problem lies. Without that, it is difficult to determine the cause.

Most auto parts stores have a check engine light reader that you can borrow for free to read the code and also to reset the check engine light. If they are not busy, they may even do it for you for free. Support your local parts store! Worst case: Take it to your dealer or buy a check engine light reader that can also reset it.

The check engine light is on because of an emission control problem. In order to shut it off you have to have it hooked up to an OBDII code reader. The code reader will give you a code as to why it is on and can shut it off for you.

A Check reader is used to scan and submit checks to be cashed in. For example, the Paypal app on iPhone allows you to take a photo of, or read, a check, and have it scanned in automatically without having to visit the bank.

The check engine light sets a code for diagnostics and you need a code reader. Most auto parts stores sell code readers and most will check the codes for free.

Check engine codes are generally read with an OBDII reader that connects to a data port under the dash. As far as I know, no cars allow you to check them by pressing buttons on the dash.

You need to take your truck into a repair shop so they can read the code on their reader. You do not want to drive your vehicle with the check engine light on without knowing what the problem is. The lights are on because there is a problem; they should go off once the problems are fixed.
