Re-set? There is a problem that needs to be addresed. This car has OBDII. If there is no problem it will shut off on it's own. Get it to a Independent garage that knows Diagnosing. One common problem I have seen is a loose gas cap, but don' bet on it.
easiest way to reset the stored codes is to disconnect the battery for 15-20 minutes... both terminals... just in case...fire it back up and it should be good to go with no warning lights on unless there is a defeinate problem

Why are ets and engine light on in 98 Chevy cavalier
No, only a problem that effects emissions will set the check engine light.
could be the oxygen sensor. that's what it was on mine.
If it is easy, your gas cap is not on correctly.
Possibly. The check engin light (aka idiot light) is a 'catchall' indicator that something is wrong in the engine compartment, especially since the tranny is hooked up to the engine.
Yes... the "Check Gauges" light will light.
you can take it to auto zone or advance auto parts stores, and they will put the scanner on it for free.

Take off the + on battery for 10 sec that should clear the code.
disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 seconds and hook it back up.
