How do you clear or reset code or Stop engine light?

Had a sensor low coolant conditio(per Silverleaf) set off the Stop engine light. Can't get the Stop engine light from periodically lighting up now. Coolant wasn't actually low but was tripped by the sensor being exposed on a very curvy hilly road.
Level was at cold minimum line at the time. No overheating per my VMSpc silver leaf monitoring software.
Does anyone know if its possible to reset the stop engine light without taking it to Cummins?
I suspect the sensor is bad and will change it but wanted to try reset light first.
Thanks in advance.

The stop engine light will illuminate when the engine is experiencing fuel starvation. I'm sure there are other things that will trip this light but I'd first look at that.

Check to ensure that your fuel tank vent hose is not plugged. Then replace your fuel filters. You could also have a leaking lift pump.

I guess I should have asked if you had experienced any power loss issues on hills first...

broadrun,
Thanks for the reply. I haven't had any power loss that would indicate I might have a fuel problem. Of course with the Stop engine light the engine will derate after that.
I'm pretty sure the Stop engine light is being set off by the low coolant sensor. I can watch silver leaf indicate low coolant level as soon as I start it. When I disconnect the coolant sensor wire there is no Stop engine light. Hoping changing the sensor fixes the problem.
