are you 100% sure there isnt a fault still present? Im not sure but you might need to take it to a garage to have it reset, although mine went away itself

if the 30min dissconnection didnt reset the light you will most likely have to have the light reset with a code reader.

I've been having trouble with my car and the management light has been off and on and decided to stay on all the time last night. I needed to check the spacing in my spark plugs an did so this morning and now the light has gone off. I have't fixed the problem yet but the light has gone away.

I can't tell you exactly what I did to make it go away but here's everything that I did.

remove Air filter from top of engine,
unplug plug 1 and remove spark plug,
replaced plug 1 and reconnected lead,

unplug plug 2 and remove spark plug,
replaced plug 2 and reconnected lead,


unplug plug 3 and remove spark plug,
replaced plug 3 and reconnected lead,

To remove plug 4 i had to disconnect all the plug leads,
unplug plug 4 and remove spark plug,
replaced plug 4 and reconnected all leads,

Then replaced the air filter and the light was gone.

Not sure how or why it has gone as I thought the only way to get it to go off was by having run the diagnostics on the car.

I can't see that removing the plugs would have made it go away. It may possibly have been because I disconnected all the plug leads?
Not sure is my answer, but it might be worth 30mins taking the plugs out and put them back and see if it goes away.

Hope this works for you.
