reset check engine light

Aside from disconnecting the battery cables, does anybody know how to reset the check engine light in a 03 4runner V6?

disconnect both battery cables
then (while disconnected from batty) hold the positive cable end to the negative cable end and hold together for 30 seconds
this works on most newer rigs

Not all codes go away this way. You can buy a cheap code reader like from which also clears codes. To bad the reader won't repair the problem too.
