Default check enginle light ON

Hello all,

I have just recently purchased my truck and it looks like I am in a bit of help.

the "check engine" light went on a couple of weeks ago and after doing a diagnosis with the local parts store I found out that the codes i had on the truck were P0171 (bank 1 too lean) & P1131 (Manuf control, fuel & Air Meeting)
I changed both the o2 sensors right before the Catalytic converter and replaced the muffler (since the muffler was in REALLY bad shape)
now the "check engine" light still on and I am going to wait a couple of days to see if the light goes off.
questions:
1 is there something I need to do to reset the "check engine" light after changing the o2 sensors?
2 any info on the codes that I have from the "check engine" light that I am missing?

thank you

Did you pull the negative battery terminal to attempt to clear the code?
