Thanks for using Just Answer

Many times you cannot re set a check engine light unless you use a scan tool. Usually a repair shop will do this for a small fee, and then you would know what the code is as well. This is what I would recommend.
However if you don't want to do that you can try taking the fuse for the computer out for a couple minutes. Sometimes that will reset the computer but not always.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need anything else.
