there is no reset button, it must be done with an obd2 code scanner ^^ that will probably cost money, easiest way to reset is to disconnect the battery for 15-20 minutes...reconnect and your codes are now lost (which is good) unless of course you do have a problem. In which you light will come back in about a day anyway... The MIL trips are it fails a 'routine.' Some routines take longer to complete than others... that is, you have to perform some common driving maneuvers, other routines run every time you start the car. These same routines can also clear the MIL, if they run without failing 3 times or so. So you don't always have to clear the DTC codes with the OBDII scanner or power loss (disconnect battery), sometimes they clear themselves.

ets and check engine light on in 98 Chevy cavalier
could be the oxygen sensor. that's what it was on mine.
Did u check your enigine cooling fan?
No, only a problem that effects emissions will set the check engine light.
check engine oil for water and check radiator for oil
If it is easy, your gas cap is not on correctly.
you can take it to auto zone or advance auto parts stores, and they will put the scanner on it for free.
What's wrong with my 2003 Chevy Cavalier if the check engine lights on and a friends computer said "misfire cylinder 4 "? It studders also. thanks Dawn
To fix the cigarette lighter on a Chevy Cavalier, check the fuse first. Next check the wiring and the cigarette lighter itself for a problem.
Possibly. The check engin light (aka idiot light) is a 'catchall' indicator that something is wrong in the engine compartment, especially since the tranny is hooked up to the engine.
You need to check all of the mounts. Get a manual to show you where they are.

Take off the + on battery for 10 sec that should clear the code.
disconnect the negative battery cable for 30 seconds and hook it back up.
check fuel sencer
Check the fuse!
Find a road with a "measured mile" and check it.
1. To reset the check engine light on your Chevy Cavalier, this is what you have to do. First, open the hood to the car, then turn the retaining nut on the battery’s negative cable clamps counterclockwise. Remove the cable clamp off the negative battery terminal by sliding it. Leave it unconnected for 5 minutes and then reconnect. Turn the ignition on and the check engine light will reset itself by blinking a few times and then shutting off.
Check your coolant level.
You can check the fluid in your 1995 Chevy Cavalier transmission with the transmission dipstick. The transmission dipstick will be on the left-hand side of the transmission and have a bright yellow handle.
You can check your automatic transmission fluid in your 1992 Chevy Cavalier with the transmission dipstick. The dipstick will have marks that indicate whether it is full or low one quart.
the headlight flasher is located under the dash next to the OBD plug in (that plug where they check engine codes) on the drivers side..
If a Chevy Cavalier cigarette lighter doesn't work, check the fuse. The fuse may be blown and will need replaced.
The check engine light cannot be retrieved on a 1990 Cavalier unless a problem develops with the engine. The engine can be checked for errors, though, by using a tester that is plugged into the vehicle's computer.
