I filled up at a gas station for the 1st time yesterday, and I wanted
to zero out my trip odometer so I could compare mpg by hand vs. the
computer. But pressing the little 0,0 button did nothing. Pressed
several times, then ended up holding it down too long which put the
computer into diagnostics. Had to restart the car twice to get out of
diagnostics, but after that, when I pressed the 0,0 button it reset the
trip 'meter to zero like it is supposed to. Don't tell me, the software
is made by Micro$oft and needs constant rebooting to function properly
I had this happen the first time I tried to reset. I held the button
down waiting for it to go to zeros. It didn't. Then I held it down
again for about 2 seconds and released and it reset. I've been doing
the 2-second-then-release ever since and haven't had an issue.
i noticed initially that it took just a real quick depress for it to
reset to 0. Every time i held longer than a half second it wouldn't
reset. So just a quick jab should do it. Although if you keep having
problems you may want to have your SA look at it.

Turn the ignition key to 'ON' and press the odometer button until the display reads ODO (not Trip A or B).
Turn the ignition key to OFF.
Hold in the same button you used in step 1.
While holding the button in, turn the ignition key to ON.
The ODOMETER will change to:
5 dashes - - - - -
Then 4 dashes - - - -
Then 3 dashes - - -
Then 2 dashes - -
Then 1 dash -
THEN all zeros 0 0 0 0 0
Then back to the correct mileage.
Then the Maintenance Required light should blink and go out.
The oil change light will come on automatically after a set number of miles (possibly 7,000 for your car). Here's how to reset the oil light:
(a) Set the odometer display window to ODO with the button.
(b) Turn the ignition switch (key) off.
(c) Press and hold down the reset button, and then turn the key to the ON or ACC position. Keep holding down the reset button for at least 5 seconds after you've turned the key.
(d) The next time you start your car the warning light should be off.
SET THE ODOMETER. GET IT OUT OF THE TRIP MODE TO THE ODOMETER BY PRESSING IN ON THE BUTTON CLOSEST TO THE ODOMETER. ONCE THE ACTUAL ODOMETER SHOWS, THEN PRESS AND HOLD THE SAME BUTTON WHILE TURNING THE ENGINE IGNITION ON. CONTINUE TO HOLD THE BUTTON IN FOR APPROX TEN SECONDS. THE CHECK ENGINE OR OIL LIGHT WILL FLASH AND GO OUT FOR UNTIL 5,000 MILES HAVE ACCUMULATED ON THE ODOMETER TO LET YOU KNOW IT'S TIME FOR ANOTHER OIL CHANGE.
1.With the car started (ignition on), set the LCD odometer readout to total mileage (not trip A or B). 2.Turn the car off (ignition key to the OFF position). 3.Push in AND HOLD the button/knob that switches the odometer 4.Turn key to ON position without starting the car. You will notice the maintenance light blink and go out. 5.Release the odometer button/knob. 6.Turn key to OFF position. That's it! The "MAINT REQD" light has been reset to warn you to change your oil in another 5,000 or 7,500 miles or so.
you can reset these odometers and it will go back to 0 after 999,999 miles but if you find a car running after that many miles id be highly surprised anywy the procedure isnt easy and it carries high penalties , most individual car sellers cant do it and most large dealers wont because of the illegalities involved
Turn ignition to "ON" position. Make sure odometer is on trip setting not on total vehicle mileage setting.
Turn ignition OFF
Push and hold odometer button while turning ignition to "ON" position. HOld for about 4-5 seconds until maintenance light goes off. Turn ignition OFF. Start up vehicle. There should be no more maintanence light.
I know you have the solution by now by Im submitting this post anyway.
To reset the oil maintence:
Have the car in a secure location with the engine off
1. Press the ingition button once, do not have your foot on the break pedal 2. Make sure you have the instrument cluster (panel on left hand side below gauges) open 3. The button marked "reset" depress it for 30 seconds and the "oil maintenance," should be reset.
