I take it you have a newer model cavalier. Which means you have an OBD-II computer. This type of computer stores the code until fixed. So if there is a preblem, then this fix will only be temporary...(STEP1) Disconnect battery for about 30 mins or even while you sleep at night. (STEP2) Reconnect battery...ENJOY!!!

1. To reset the check engine light on your Chevy Cavalier, this is what you have to do. First, open the hood to the car, then turn the retaining nut on the battery’s negative cable clamps counterclockwise. Remove the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal by sliding it. Leave it unconnected for 5 minutes and then reconnect. Turn the ignition on and the check engine light will reset itself by blinking a few times and then shutting off.

The service light indicator on a 2004 Chevy Cavalier tells its owners when to send the vehicle in for maintenance. To reset the light, unplug the battery for five seconds.
