It is very easy back when I had mine I did it all the time. All it takes is a test light check on the internet too see which pin.

I used to be afraid of that to, but I do it all the time myself. I have a little wire with a clip on it. Connect to the number 7 pin, and connect it to a ground while your key is set to the number two position in the ignition. I think it is like 7 seconds to hold onto a ground for oil, and 15 seconds for a service light.
Trust me, you won't short electrical or anything.
