How to reset the check engine light?

I checked the airfilter in my 2002 with a Zetec engine, and in the process I forgot to plug the MAS back in before driving the car. So now the check engine light is on, even though the problem is fixed. How do I reset the light, or will it reset itself after a certain number of engine starts?

Reset

All you need to do is disconnect the battery for about 15 minutes and it will reset itself.

Or you can drive for about 100 miles, it should check up on itself after a certain amount of driving. But I would just unhook the battery for a few minutes.

Cool, thanks. I tried doing some searching before posting such a basic question, and some info I found lead me to believe it was more involved. But this is the info I hoped to get
