Hello. If there was no engine light prior to you completing the spark plug job, then you should be fine. When you start any vehicle without something plugged in, your definitely without a doubt going to receive a check engine light as the PCM is detecting some type of malfunction. In this day in age it’s always good to have a code reader/OBD Scan Tool. This will insure you know exactly what’s going on with your vehicle without second guessing. In your case a scan tool would tell you that there was a cylinder misfire and you can either erase the code or simply wait sometimes and it will eventually turn off.. But not all the time. You can also use the battery/PCM disconnect method, but please be aware that resetting your PCM will require roughly 200 miles driven for the computer to gather its information for the vehicle to be ready for an inspection. If you have no upcoming inspections you will be fine resetting the engine light. Hope this helps.
