Dirty Parts Alternator Voltage Booster

I installed a gel battery so I purchased a voltage booster to up the voltage. Easy install, but it triggered the battery warning light. Checked voltage and everything working as well except for warning light on. Called Dirty Parts and they said some FJ’s are more sensitive than others. Tried leaving door open for 20 minutes to reset computer and disconnecting battery for the same reason, but no change. Dirty Parts Says no harm with the warning light on which sounds right.
I am wondering if anyone else has had this and what to do to correct this? Is there another way to reset the computer?
What did you experience?

Thanks

Did you install the 7.5 amp fuse into the Dirty Parts fuse diode assembly?

No I did not! Ok I put it in problem solved! Funny, the instruction forgot to mention that step, but it makes total sense.

Thank you so much, that why I love this forum.
