Timing Belt warning light - how do you switch it off

Hi, does anyone know how to turn off the Timing belt warning light that has come on in my 1993 Trooper 3.1 TD. It came on when the mileage reached 120,000 miles. I had the belt replaced when I bought the
vehicle at 84,000 so the belt should be Ok for a bit longer.
Thanks
Norman

There is a reset button up behind the dash somewhere. By far the easiest method, which is entirely effective and discrete, is to cut a half inch square of black plastic tape over the bulb area. Next most sensible is take the bulb out. If you really must, then grope around for that damn reset button which I couldn't find and that could mean dismantling the dash....... so they say. I couldn't be bothered because, like you, I know when it should next be changed and have a label in the door shut to remind me.
