unplug the battery for 15 mins will clear it, but once it notices the problem again it will come back on

the light being on is not the cause of the engine running rich.

what code does it have?
you cant just turn it off, you can un-hook the battery for a few seconds and that will temp keep it out untill the PCM see the fault again.

the light is on because you have a problem.

if its a o2 sensor code IE engine has reached its rich limit, then it sounds like you have a vacuum leak
