You will need an OBD2 scan tool or code checker to read the code. There is no shortcut on resetting the lamp. It's coming on for a reason. Find out which code is setting, repair the condition and then clear the code. Most of the time, once the repair is made, the vehicle will need to make two or three "trips" without a failure before the lamp will reset. Russtech67

The check engine light on a Buick Regal can be reset with a special diagnostic scanner. This can be performed at a car dealership or service garage.

I have a Buick Regal LS and I had them run a computer diagnosis and it was due to the gas cap not fitting properly. There is an electronic sensor there. Most automotive stores will do this check for you free of charge.

If the check engine light does not flash when in the diag mode, the problem is the computer. Could be as simple as a failed lamp driver but a failed computer is toast and will need to be replaced/
