2003 Volvo S60 Question: turn off check engine light

How do I turn off the light. Light came on after my boy filled it up with gas and didn't get the gas cap tight -
Answer 1
You can try to disconnect the battery for a while and see if it will reset, if not, you need to take it to a repair shop to do it. Zee -
Answer 2
It may reset by itself eventually, but if you have a mechanic friend, see if he'll clear it for you for free with his scanner (maybe bring him a sandwich). I would for something like that for my esteemed customers. -
Answer 3
The light will go off after a day or two if the loose gas cap was indeed the reason for turning it on. -
Comment 1
But only if he keeps the fuel level correct to run EVAP leak test. It has to be between 20 and 80%. -
Comment 2
Thanks for the clarification Zee. -
