What could cause Service Engine Soon light to come on in 2003 Buick Regal?

Not sure which light you are referring to. The Service Engine soon light can be nothing more than a light reminding you to change your oil. It can also be what is normally called the Check Engine Light which means there is a problem with the emissions system. The cause can be as simple as a loose gas cap, and as complicated as a defective sensor. A scan of the ECU with an OBD2 scan tool will give you a fault code. This code will help determine exactly what part is defective. Turn on the ignition and see if you have a Check Engine light. It will only stay on for a few seconds. If you do, then this Service Engine Soon light means to perform regular maintenance. If not, it means the emissions system needs service.

How do you reset Service engine soon light On 2001 buick regal?

Depending on your area, you can go to your local AutoZone, and they can sometimes reset your light. But in some areas, laws wont allow them too. My local AutoZone is like this, but if you hold their little code scanner, and ask them which buttons to press to reset it, its you that reset it and not them. Some will do this, but not all.
