It will take a few driving cycles to clear the light.
Just tighten the cap and drive it and the light will go off.
No harm done.

if you don't want to wait for it to go off, you could unhook the battery for a while. when you plug it back in it'll be to normal.

you coudl unhookd the battery for a while or drive aroudn for a while. If not you will have to take it to the dealers or buy a progmmaer and erase the message from the system. Good luck Dont mean to repeat dawg and slimm
