2 mechanical questions



First question, my speedo resets itself when I slow down or come to a stop. the tach & speedo die. The engine idles fine.
When I start to move it comes back to life. All the lights turn on & my speedo comes back to life. What could be causing this?

Second question, when you go in to the dealer to get an oil change they reset an indicator that tells me when I have to change my oil, how do I do that myself?

Thanks

(brad 82) No. Do you think it could be some kind of short? Does this dash have a battery at the back like the e30's? If so could it be that?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated guys.
Thanks
