well you need to find out the code. that light is not just for looks, there is a reason its coming on, you could be damaging your engine.

Definitely goto autozone and have them check what code.

But to turn the check engine light off just press the odometer button and hold it in while your starting the car.

That's how you activate the built-in turbo inside the engine.

OK thanks, I did check the code I can't exactly remember what is was, but I know it was a engine senor (pump pressure) it is activated after 5000RPM.
I thought it was a oxygen exhaust sensor before.

You get a check engine light after stomping on gas. Probably an air flow issue. If you have stock air or CAi then check filter. However this condition is usually caused by a dirty MAF. Clean the MAf, check filter. Best way to reset, truly reset CEL is pull the EFI1 fuse/wait about a minute then plug back in or disconnect battery for about a minute then reconnect. However, this is not going to fix the issue just erases the ECU. Clean and check the items I said and if CEL comes back on after, pull the codes and PM or email me.

I'm not going to pretend to know what your problem is here, but you can reset the light by either unplugging the battery for a while, then plugging it back in (Your car will handle funny for a while as the computer reloads all of its information) or usually the computer that is used to check the code can also reset the light.
