I am presuming that you mean the check engine light on the dash.

Under the hood by the battery is a fuse box. Remove the 7 amp back-up fuse for at least ten seconds and then put it back in. The top of the fuse box should tell you which fuse this is (it is next to the wall of the fuse box on the side next to the battery).

You remove the 7.5 amp back-up fuse (for at least ten seconds) from the underhood fuse box beside the battery. The cover of the fuse box will show you which fuse (it is labelled 'back-up (radio)', and unlike what I said yesterday, is in the fuse box on the side just next to the firewall.

Resetting check engine light on 97 Honda Civic. The check engine light came on and apparently, my gas cap was loose. Replaced the cap w/ new cap from autozone (in case the seal on the cap was faulty), but the engine light stayed on. Followed the instructions on removing the 7.5 amp fuse and like magic...the engine light disappeared. Saved me at least 100 bucks.

Be careful though because sometimes if the light is off it is still on inside your ecu.. as long as everything is ok in your car the ecu will reset itself during a complete drive cycle..which is around 150 - 200 miles.
