Of course it can be reset but if you haven't resolved the issue that put it on in the first place, it will just come right back on.

It can be reset. The service light usally comes on at oil change intervals. Also if I remember right the procedure is in the owners manual. I forgot the procedure, but it involes one of the odometers buttons and the ignition(turning the car on and off and on and takes seconds to complete.
If you can not find it in the manual I will find the proceedure for you.
Let me know.

No, unless we are talking about a "maintenance required" light, that's not the way it works. This is a "check engine" malfunction light.

Not sure witch light he is talking about. There is a "maintaince" light. Witch their is a proceedure in the manual to remove.
And their is a "engine" light. The engine light can also be reset but, It can also return with in a couple of minute or just stay off by pulling the back up fuse in the passenger side muti block for a couple of minutes.
It's a 15 amp fuse and I think it will be #13.
The fuse is on the right side of the fuse block, 3rd up from the botom.
Not a permenent fix but it may make your light go away.
I'm not clear witch light you have.

Your posts are not helping anything here. Removing fuses won't necessarily clear memory codes and if they are hard codes, it certainly won't. The codes need to be troubleshooted to resolve the light issues.

My post are directing op to direction he's looking to go.
Not just passing the problem to a scanner.
Anyone can say get the codes but, in fairness codes do not pinpoint anything. They can be close and get you to the right area of the said system most the time. But it is sure not just going to spit out your problem.
To me:
People that preach go to the scanner instead of trying to answer a question to help someone with "their question" is pointless and not really helping anyone, period.
You might as well say go to Autozone, and that's it.
Most people are looking for help, not a directory.
Just saying.

He was asking if their was a way to remove the light.

My comprehension skills are fine. Are yours?

I'm not here to argue with untrained DIYers. I'll deal with your inaccurate posts through other channels.

I'm not here to argue either.
And you are making speculation of my character that I am a untrained diyer.
Do you know me or assume you do.
I do not have a certificate. But I can tell you I'm 36 I grew up in my grand farther junk yard and have worked in various shops till about 30 and I still work on cars everyday.
Do I have a certificate, no.
Do I have plenty of knowledge, I would like to think so. Since I've been around all phases of auto repair basically my whole life.

What I told him to do is a chance he can remove the light right in his drive way without having to go anywhere.
If it does not clear, then go to the scanner, fix issue, and reset the ecu again.

Hey, I didn't tell op to remove his cluster and pull the bulb or anything stupid like some inexperienced diy'er might.
