Using the weblink you supplied on the DATA LINK CONNECTOR you would use pin#7 & pin#19.
Diagnostic Connector you would use pin#1 & pin#7.
I just use a test light. But a paper clip will give you the same results.
you really should be putting a resistor in line with your jumper, giving the computer a straight path to ground can be a risky thing...don't want to end up frying your SIA computer that could get pricey!
Just reset mine using a cable TV wire with ends stripped off. Grounded #7 pin to car for 3 seconds w/switch in #2 position. Read it in some FAQ...supposedly this smaller wire helps prevent electrical problems.

No squeaks or rattles... unreal!
Oh yeah! It worked! I went shopping for the wire, the clip, the resistor, etc... So i ended up with a nice tool... I tried it on my car and... it worked on 1st try! And best of all, it cost me a small 5$CDN!
THANKS GUYS. I think I was the one who started asking.
I think I know what I'm doing, since I did 5 years of electrical engineering hahaha... :P :thumbs anyways thanks! I needed to know the pins and stuff!
