on a lot of cars u can just unhook one of the battery cables for a few minutes and the light will stay out.

The check engine light is illuminated because there is a problem with one or more of the control devices on the engine. A responsible way of having this taken care of, would be to take it to a shop where they can repair the vehicle.

You can go to autozone, they will read the code for you, then then to clear it. If it keeps coming back I'd go to a garage at that point.

A Dodge Ram will have a check engine light appear when the engine needs to be serviced. You can reset this light by following the directions in your manual or by having your mechanic do it.

Resetting the ECM without fixing the reason why the check engine light came on will only lead to the check engine light coming back on soon.

if your check engine light is on your computer is reading a default code and needs to be serviced by a mechanic there is no fuse to control the light
