you will need a drive cycle. it will set the clear the monitors that will require a drive cycle.
is your light on? if it is, then you need to record the code number for a diag or the code may return on the drive cycle and additional diags will be necessary.

Chevrolet has in their engine computer known as a PROM chip. It stores information and codes from the vehicle. The only way is to reset with a scanner.
