help please need an answer before tommorow morning

hi there

basically made a silly mistake today. After cleaning the air filter i forgot to plug the maf back in and started the car only for a few seconds though. now the engine light is on and im wondering if ive done any damage?? im going down to santa pod in the morning so im a little bit worried about travelling all that way with it on. Is there any way i can delete the code also so the light goes off?
thanks

well i'm 100% on the OBD2 cars but on the the earlier ones it was a simple case a disconnecting the battery for a few minutes to reset the faults.

I have been working on a 06 hawkeye today that had an em lamp on which went off after the car had stood for a while with a flat battery.

It's worth giving it a try.

disconnection wont work on a non-volatile memory, start and stop the car a few times and it will clear, 5 times should work from memory.
