    You can goto a local auto parts store and they should do it for free (Advance Auto) does it here in FL..or you could pull the terminal off the battery and it 15 mins it will clear but you should know what code its sending.

    I would assume they would charge the min labor prolly 90-100 bucks. They will dot your brown eye though.

    It could be so many things, not even worth trying to guess. Just get it checked out for free at your local Advance or Autozone, then post it up in here and we'll see if we can help you out with it.

    For what the dealer will charge you could prolly buy an Autotap cable and read em yourself forever. http://www.autotap.com/

    For $100 the dealer should read and diagnose the SES codes and then clear them. Then you can fix the problem yourself. If you really want just a code pulled and cleared they may work with you and do it for cheaper(maybe $30) or free, especially if you have something else done like an oil change, tire rotation, brake inspection, etc...something like that.
    But like previous stated you should be able to buy a code reader/clearer? for $100 or less.

    call around to some local parts stores and see if anyone up there pulls codes for free. Not sure what parts stores you have up there. Like was said, if all else fails you can buy your own reader and then always have it and save you a trip to the parts store from time to time.

    Princess Auto has Code readers on sale for around $100 some times. And guys be sure to look at locations as up here in Canada we don't have Advanced and those stores here.
