From what I have read about this, as I have been researching the same issue. It looks like this light can come on from a bad connector, to the whole control module. Mine started by coming on in cold weather and then going off when the car heated up, to the point it would not go off and stays on all the time now. I'm going to go after the connectors under the seat, which seems to be the main fault and some have actually suggested using a wire tie to keep the connector from seperating. Seems that may be your problem, based on what you said. You may have even damaged yours.
