Take the negitave battery cable off for a half hour. This should clear the ecm's memory.

most code reader will have an erase feature. If needed stop by autozone, have them read the code and erase it when they are done.

What lights do you have one right now?

Different tell tales have different requirements for clearing. Faults stored in EEPROM might not reset just because you pull the battery feed.
