If the battery is out of the car for more than 6 hours the computer will get rest. If you are removing the old battery and replacing it with a new one immediately you should not have any problems. You also could buy an adapter that plugs into your cigarette lighter which uses a 9V battery to maintain the power to the computer while the main battery is removed. You could buy these adapters at your local auto stores.

How do you reset a 1998 service engine light?

disconnect battery or buy moduleSome cars you can disconnect the battery overnight. This will reset everything. If that doesn't work, there is also a module you can buy from most auto part stores for about $115 that will reset the computer in your car. Regardless it is usually the computer in the car that is keeping the light on. If you need to reset the computer/light to get a state inspection you may have to reset the light and drive the car more than 100+ miles to truly reset the light. Note: The light must stay off for the required miles to reset the computer. Some states have this law and it must be changed.
