Newbie / 04' R1100s 'Warning Light' Question

Hi,

Just bought my first BMW last week. The bike has 6k miles and had been sitting in a garage for the last year and a half. Everything functions as it should and cosmetically it's mint. Due to it sitting in the garage untouched for so long it was filthy so I gave it a good washing this past Saturday. After the cleaning my 'warning light' came on. It wasn't on prior to hosing it down so I'm guessing I got water somewhere I wasn't supposed to. The book states that it could be the rear light or brake light but they both function fine. Anyone have any pointers on how to turn this off? Am I going to have to take it in to have the dealer reset it? I'd appreciate any help or suggestions. (I did take off the seat and all plastics to get the grime off)

Attached are a couple pics of the bike after the detailing.

Thanks-

The rear light may be a dual element and still work. Remove the lense and inspect the lamp...
