Go to AutoZone and ask one of the fellas to come out and "check your check engine light code". They will be able to tell you what the problem code is, as well as re-set your check engine light.

How do I reset the check engine light on a 2003 Mazda Tribute?

I don't believe you (as an operator) can "reset" the check engine light. A mechanic can probably reset it using the port that actually draws the code which caused the failure. When my check engine light came on, I did what the owners manual indicated and just tried a few more tanks of gas (manual indicated that a bad tank of gas might be the problem, or the gas cap might not be installed correctly). After a tank and a half, light went out and hasn't been back on since.
