    Mine came on the other day as I reversed right up against a wall and idled for a bit. I disconnected the battery for 30 mins and it didn't go away. I refueled and it went.

    Try this first, Put key in & turn on till light is on. Press and hold mileage trip reset button. Turn off for a couple of seconds then back on while keeping the button pressed for at least 3 more seconds. Light should reset. Start the car as normal light will come on again if a fault exists but not if its cleared.

    it means the fault is no longer registered to the ECU
    If there i a problem it will come back.
    Id get in contact with MIj about the remap if its emission control
