You gottafigure outwhat caused the check engineand fix the problem. Depending on the code or codes involved once fixed the light will stay off. A few codes will require a determined number of on/off "cycles" without error before it will go out. You can always erase codes by disconnecting the battery for at least a half hour. That resets the PCM. The check engine light will come right back on and stay on till you fix whatever iscausing it
