How do I reset or turn off a Check Engine Light for my
97 Ford Explorer V6? I have already retrieved the codes, but
Now I need to reset the Check Engine light.

That may turn off the light, but it won't clear the existing codes like on an OBD-I vehicle. Need a scanner or reader to clear the codes.

if you have a advanced auto parts store near you, go there and ask them to erase your codes with an obd-II scan tool. they will do it free of charge.
