Hello and welcome to Just Answer. Have you made a repair to the system and now you just need to clear the code?

The codes can only be cleared manually with a scan tool. If you have repaired the fault then after a few times with the code test passing the light will then go back out. The code itself will stay in history for 50 to 100 ignition cycles. Some auto parts stores have scan tools that they will loan. Autozone and Pep Boys I think will clear the code for you free. Disconnecting the battery does not clear the code though.
