ABS light reset

I was wondering if anyone knew of a secret or quick-n-dirty way to reset the ABS light. The manual says to plug it in to the magic Suby dealer box.

HI!! HEAD, you can disconnect one side of the battery. for several minutes tap your brake pedal to drain it quicker,reconnect if lights flash on and off toggle remote on and off.If you haven't fix your abs trouble it will eventually come on if not right away.Best regards

Looks like it worked! I unplugged the battery for an hour or so. I started it up and the ABS light was on but once the car started moving it went away. Thanks for the advice.
