the port to reset that is in the engine compartment, it's a round port with a cover on it.... you need to use a peake research tool to do it, or a similar one... you don't just "push a button"

If it dosn't rain this afternoon, I'l use my patented paperclip method and take pics as PROOF that it works.

My method can reset both oil and service lights and is totally free..... provided you have a paperclip you dont mind bending outa shape...

I personally can't afford paperclips like soommme people... so I used a piece of an old CATV wire...just strip about 1 1/2" from either end...about a foot long....
