Jackson or Memphis area code reset?

Anyone in my area that can reset the codes/light on my 99 328? I just installed new MAF sensor and it cleared the COG and runs better, so pretty sure it took care of the problem, but ned to reset CEL. I have not figured out which scanner/device I want to purchase yet - only had the car a week.

If your CEL isn't going out on its own, you still have other issues.

As mentioned, the SES/CEL/MIL light will go out on its own if the problems are corrected. Sometimes it takes a few days and some miles for it to clear, otherwise as mentioned there is still a problem.

Suggest you read this on OBDII tool options - http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=967204

For $35 or less a smart phone App and interface is the best place to start for an OBDII tool.

bummer, wish I'd read this a little sooner. On my way home tonight, I stopped at an O'Reilly's and the scanned it and cleared the code. Transmission cog light turned off as soon as I installed the new MAF sensor last night. Guess I should have given it a few days to see if it cleared. Will see if it returns or not.
