Go to your local Autozone, they will read the codes, and then clear the codes for you at no charge.

Some places will sell or let you rent an OBD-II engine code tool. You can read the codes and reset them. Some of the codes are GM proprietary, so the tool will just report a number without a description. You can get the description from the service manual, or maybe the dealer.

Or you could just unplug the battery for a few minutes if all you want to do is reset the codes/shut off the light. If you have corrected the problem the light will go off on its own. Oh, and you can just Google the codes.
