turn your ignition switch on, do not start. Forcefully press the accelerator 3 times, the light will blink. Once it blinks and goes off, start your vehicle. This happens when you change your oil or have any type of service performed.

To reset the system. Turn the ignition key to the "OFF" position with the odometer reading shown. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position while holding down the trip meter reset knob. Hold down the knob for at least 5 seconds. The odometer indicates "000000" and the light goes off. If the system fails to reset, the light will continue flashing.
