Tried the one about holding in the left button and then turning the key to accessary until it reads reset but it comes up test_1 and does not reset the oil milage. Any other ideas? Thanks

It is a 1999 323i. Jumping the pins only resets the lights right? Useing pins 7 and 19. Pin 19 as the ground. On the later models the oil odometer counts down from 15000 miles and then starts to go into negative miles. Just can't figure out how to reset this part of it.
