OIL RESET display.....

I recently changed my oil, and last time a buddy had the reset tool. its not major, but still annoying to see the yellow/red bars on my odometer.. I think there was a way to hook up a jumper wire to the engine connection to reset this. Does anyone have a picture or a website reference pointing this out?

thanks kids!

hey guys.... what's the procedure for doing this? turn on the car and apply the brakes or something? I've only ever done this the proper way with the reset tool.

thanks,

OK, now you’re ready to reset the oil service light, so turn the ignition key to position II, but don’t start the car. Get out of the car and go to the data port. Always connect pin 7 first. Once you’ve inserted one end into pin 7, insert the other end into pin 19 and hold it there for 4 seconds. Then remove the paperclip. Check the dash and the oil inspection lights should be reset. The reset occurs upon removal of the clip.

On EUR version I have pin 7 to 1 and must hold ~ 15-20 sec
