You should hire a lawyer to go to court to recall the warrant. A lawyer can do this without you present if the underlying charge is a misdemeanor, so it is less risky for you.

Best thing to do is to contact your lawyer or hire a lawyer. If neither of those options are available to you, go to the court, talk to the clerk, and set a court date to appear in front of a judge and surrender on the warrant. People don't usually go to jail for FTAs on misdemeanor cases, but it is possible. Might want to talk to a bail bondsman before you go to court.
