Check engine light clearing?

Had mine come on for what I believe is the gas cap, but now it won't go out.

Any way to clear the engine light on these cars without a scanner or a nail biting trip to the dealer?

Disconnect your battery for about ten minutes, if that doesnt work try autozone they run scans for free, ask them to clear the code.

DTC's are stored in non-volatile memory so that no longer works. Even this 30 dollar code reader can clear codes. Or you can run over to Autozone.

You need to get the code. You can report back here with the exact code number. If the MIL remains lit after several drive cycles that means the condition has not been corrected.
