Default URGENT!!! How can I disable the SES light?

My SES is on and won't go off. I have disconnected the battery for a couple of hours but it comes back on. I know what the problem is, it'* the cam sensor (code 41) but it doesn't affect the drivability of the car. I have to pass a safety today and it won't make the grade with that light on. Soooo is there an easy way to disable the light without ripping my dash out?

thanks

Pulling the bulb is the only way I know of if the problem is existing.

I think the cam sensor is usually an easy one to replace, and not too expensive.
