Yes you can turn off the check engine light without a scan tool. You just need to disconnect the negative battery cable for 15 minutes. Once reconnected, if the computer no longer recognizes the issue then it will not illuminate the check engine light.
Thanks for letting me assist you. I hope I met all your expectations.
