there are hundreds of reasons why your light could come on. go to a shop or maybe a parts store and ask to have codes pulled on your computer the parts stores usually cant do quite as good of a job but they are usually free :) and free is always nice

Or just try to disconect the battery for 30 seconds it worked for me.
