    Disconnect the negative battery to clear the light. Take it for a spin to see if the light comes back on. If it does, get the code read and report back.

    ^If it stays on, head over to Autozone and they'll run the code for you.

    DO NOT just unhook your batt! This will solve nothing. Either way if you have fixed the problem the light will turn off in 40 - 50 miles when the computer cycles. IF you clear it then it will still have the problem but will come back on in the same amount of time. Do what Wilson said and take it to autozone and have them check the code.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a fuse throwing a code...Specially not for anything like a light.

    OP- I'd pay REALLY close attention to your MPGs and engine noise/operating parameters as much as you can. If oyur light stays off and everything works right- Prolly can rest easy, but I'd expect to see that light again.
    Autozone reads codes for free-At least at that point you'll know what you are getting into.
