  2. Rev up the engine at 5000RPM for 2 seconds
  3. Release accelerator and allow engine to idle for 2 seconds
  4. Rev up for the second time at 5000RPM for 2 seconds
  5. Release accelerator and allow engine to idle for 2 seconds
  6. Rev up for the third time at 5000RPM for 2 seconds
  7. Release accelerator and allow engine to idle

After the above procedure the engine management light should extinguish.
