Check air filter after driving in heavy snow

After driving thru heavy snow for several hundred miles my air filter plugged up with snow sucking it through my zoodad mod, so I pulled it out and let it dry for a good week in my house. Now it's dry but the check filter message is still on. Any idea what's up?

There is an actual gauge on the back of the filter that says the filter is still good

Check your filter minder, it's black and yellow and connects into the air filter inlet tube between the filter and turbo. You can reset it. You also might want to inspect it for damage like cracks.

I hit a large puddle once and caused the filter minder to blow apart.

Mine still shows that the filter is good.

But did you push in the yellow button to reset it?

I tried, but it didn't do anything. I'll double check again tomorrow.

I'm not sure if a blown fuse will cause the light to stay on, but it wouldn't hurt to look.
