its still alive?

its an o.b.d. 1 system. if it is still on, then there is probably still a problem.
just for kicks, you can disconnect the battery and wait 10 minutes. this will clear your k.a.m. memory. your car will have to re-learn all sensor values. if the light comes back on then you definitely still have a problem.

Disconnecting the battery is the simplest way.
