Normally it should have stayed off by reconnecting the wire. If not you could disconnect the battery for like 15 minutes to reset the computer.

Tried that a few times. My computor will not clear code. prior to disconnect system had no codes or problem. There is a way too reset it using the under dash link and grounding two wires off Tc and AB. Have you heard of this?

I have heard of all kinds of tricks for resetting things, it wouldn't surprise me, but I don't know that one. A scanner capable of reading Air Bag, & ABS codes could clear it.
