Make sure you haven't got any water down the spark plug holes (around the spark plugs) Make sure your coolant is full - Is the temp OK? You can reset the ECU by pulling out the EFI fuse which will make it run bad for a few miles then it should re-learn everything - but if a warning light is coming on then that probably indicates your problem. One of the GTR owners will be along soon with their owners manual to tell you what the light is!
