Removing the NEG cable from the battery for a minimum of 5 minutes should clear the light. If the light returns, then there is a problem in one of the monitored systems. If there are no engine performance symptoms, then more than likely, the problem will lie in the EVAP (emissions control/recovery) System. At this point, you will need to have the Diagnostic Trouble Codes (aka "P-Codes") scanned from the on-board computer. You can have these p-codes read FREE (except in California) at any local "big chain" part store (ie. AutoZone, PepBoys, Advanced, etc). Once you have these p-codes you can more accurately and efficiently diagnose the root of the problem and make the correct repair.
