well shannon your computer has detected a problem with the emissions system and it will need to be corrected before the light will go out. It can be reset by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes or with a scan tool but it will just come back on if you do not repair the problem that caused it to illuminate in the first place.

Isuzu Rodeos made in or after 1995 have a port under the dash called an OBD-II (On Board Diagnostics) port typically located between the steering wheel and the pedals. You can typically hook up an OBD-II reader that can read the vehicle's OBD codes and tell you why the check engine light is coming on, and most will give you the option to reset the light -- though it's usually a good idea to address the problem. You can buy an ODB-II reader at many stores that sell tools and automotive parts and accessories or you can ask one of your mechanic or car savvy friends if they have an OBD reader and if you can borrow it.
