I got my engine light on on my car. I have had this happen to me before. I had the car check everything was fine and they just reset the computer.

Can I reset the computer easyly

there is a tech bulletin that states one of the egr tubes is too small(or big don't remember). But it would trigger the check engine light. It took 5 trips to my dealer for them to finally realize it after I told them thats what it was on the first visit.

Yes, it's easy.

The ECU is located in the middle front of the car, in the dash sorta under the radio. Remove the innner kick panels down by the floor and you will see it. You just have to turn the screw. The instructions are on SE-R.net as I'm not sure which way you turn it as it's been a long time since I've done it.

you turn the screw clockwise for 2 seconds, then counterclockwise for 2 seconds. this puts you in diagnostic mode, your check engine light will now blink off and on a certain number of times (giving to trouble codes). just turn the screw clockwise again for 2 seconds and counterclockwise for 2 seconds...presto reset engine light....savings $40-70 from the $tealer.
