The only thing that absolutely gets rid of a warrant is the defendant surrendering to the issuing court, voluntarily or involuntarily.

Someone at the court or law enforcement agency that maintains whatever record you are looking at probably knows. You'll need to ask that person for the answer.

Generally, an arrest warrant ends when the person who is the subject of the warrant is brought before the court. A person who knows a warrant has been issued for his/her arrest really ought to consult a criminal defense attorney in the state that issued the warrant for advice. Warrants don't just disappear; eventually that warrant may catch up to the wanted person, and that may end up being at a very bad time. If the subejct is proactive in dealing with the warrant, he has a little more control over how things play out than he does if he just sits back and waits for the police to find him/her.

You may want to read the LawBrain: Warrant article as a good resource to learn more about this subject matter.

Arrest warrants are usually not "quashed." They are served which results in the arrest of the person the subject of the warrant. If you believe an arrest warrant is outstanding for you, I'd recommend contacting a qualified criminal defense lawyer to assist you immediately. Exercise your right to remain silent and DO NOT speak to anyone on this planet about the case, do not answer any questions by anyone. Speak ONLY with your attorney.
