No. You can reset the computer by disconnecting the NEGATIVE battery cable for a minute or so, but the light will probably just come back on. You need to get a Ford code reader from your parts store (usually about $30). This will come with a manual describing how to retrieve the codes and figure out what the computer is complaining about. Then you must fix whatever is broken to keep the computer from storing codes and lighting the light.
