Default Check engine light is still on!

hey everyone, My 05 cruiser has been throwing me a code about not getting a signal from the camshaft sensor so I just replaced it, How long does it take for the check engine light to come off? Is there a way I can clear the codes myself cause the local autozone dont clear the codes anymore here in st.louis. I know how to check for them with the ignition sequence.

Remove the negative cable for about 15 minutes, see if that helps, that resets the computer.

Cowboy, hopefully you put in a Chrysler/Mopar sensor as the PT doesn't like aftermarket (made in ???) parts.
