Mostly related to oxygen sensor and emissions stuff. I've heard the light
will reset itself after a certain number of ignition cycles.
On a vehicle with an OBDI compliant computer you can reset it by
disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. If there really is still a
problem the light will come back on after awhile. Usually it just stays
off. Don't know if this also applies to an OBDII computer.
No road - no problem - no check engine light
