In order to reset the service engine soon light in any newer model car including this one, you need to be able to clear the codes stored by the OBD-II computer controlling your car. These codes are what causes the light to go on. The only way to do this is by plugging a code reader into the data port located underneath your dashboard above the brake pedal. A code reader is about the size of a palm pilot and costs about as much, so your best bet is trying to find a place that will read your code for free. I believe NAPA or a related autoparts place does this. Make sure you find out what the problem is before you clear the code. It could indicate something serious. Good luck

Another way you can turn off your check engine light is by disconnecting the positive battery terminal for a couple minutes and then reconnect. This will shut the light off but if the fault is still present the light will come back on
