What kind of repairs are we talking? Is the lite flashing, is it on steady?
Can you check for codes? If there is still a problem, the lite won't go out.

The repair that was made was to replace the coolant temperature sensor. I took it to Auto Zone and they said that was the code that it called for so, I replaced it and the light is still on. I took it back to Auto Zone and they show that it now has no code at all so I'm trying to figure out how to get the light to go out.

Usually, when the codes are cleared, that resets the mil, but, if the problem hasn't been corrected, it will come back on. If there is a special procedure for your vehicle, I'm not aware of it.

Okay, after the guy at Auto Zone disconnected his computer the light went out and has been off all day today with no problems. Go figure.

On obd1 vehicles, I'd take the negative battery loose, to erase the codes, before I got a scanner. When you take the battery cable loose, you lose any memory settings like the clock and radio. You can also lose computer memory, like engine run parameters. The engine may not run as well until you do a relearn procedure or drive cycle. I'm glad you got it.
