with the key in the on position, not running, depress the accelerator pedal to the floor 3 times in 5 seconds. the light should blink and go out.

i have the same problem and have tried multiple times per the instructions - any further tips?? i got it now too - my problem was i was following the directions and returning the key to the lock position, rather then just waiting after the 3 pedal presses in 5 seconds to see the light flash and go off while still in the 'on' position - thanks - that piece helped me solve it
