Well I had the same problem. What you do is disconnect both battery terminals,

then pump the brake and keep pressing the horn for like 1 minute, that takes the problem out of the memory cell, then wait 1 hour then connect the battery, and see if the light is still on. If it is, wait like 2 and a half minutes, and the car should go off. What your problem could be is that your check engine light needs to be RESET.

I had a similar problem. My check engine light went on and started blinking, and when it blinks, it means theirs a misfire, so I changed all 4 spark plugs, and turned the car on, and the light stopped blinking, but remained on, so it needed to be RESET, because its a computer that senses it, so it doesn't know the problem is all taking care of, so it needed to be RESET. I /helped you.
