A reset doesn't fix the problem. A misfire can be caused by poor spark, but it can be caused by fuel or mechanical problems, as well. Might be the plug wire, a clogged/defective injector, pulse problem at that injector, or a loss of compression in that cylinder. Have a mechanic check this.

If the problem has been fixed the light will go off in a few days. Or you can clear the computer with a scan tool or code reader. As you found out disconnecting the battery on an OBD II vehicle will do nothing! Hope that helps! Jim
