You could just drive with the check engine light on like I've been doing for about 2000 miles. It's a real pain in the butt and if something was really wrong with the car I wouldn't have any idea. I also bought the 02 sims and put them in. They weren't cheap, almost $100 I think I paid and yet my light is still on. You have to make sure that they are pushed in all the way and stay that way, I think. I think mine aren't fitting in right and that's my problem, it could also be yours. You are supposed to break off some sort of tab to make them fit right, I think as well.
I have a bud over on SVTOA's forum who had the same problem. I believe that he mentioned for some folks, just switching the MIL's around solved the problem........... probably worth a try.
p.s.- Also heard that the Bassani system is notorious for this same condition. Didn't read to see what you're using before I started typing this suggestion, but that's yet another possibility.
Did you remember to disconnect your battery for 10-15 minutes to allow your computer to reset? I installed MIL's last night and the check engine light is no longer on. If you did disconnect your battery, I would do it again and let the car sit for a while.

What he said, but I like to let it reset for a little longer than that, and I usually turn on something to cause a power drain. Like the interior lights.
I have been running the dallas mil's for over a year now and my check engine light will come on every now and then. I just reset her and she is okay again for a couple of months. BTW, with the light on their are no ill side effects.

my CE light came on after like 900 miles the first time, so I got under the car and tightened everything and thought I found an exhaust leak on a loose connection right before the driver side O2. It came on again two days ago, and after like 100 miles it went away and has not come on today. Strange. Anyhow, dont go to Auto Zone and try to get your codes scanned cause they are diks and a shop tried to charge me $40 so I just let it go and it went off. Hopefully it will stay off.
