Drive 50miles and it should automatically go off, however if the light reappears then take the car to the dealers where they will diagnos the engine. In addition you may take out the battery and leave it for 5mins as this resets the ECU, but this is a hassle as the alarm can malfunction and the cd codes/ cassete player codes would be needed.
