You will need a specific reset tool to do it.

I've done it by shorting two pins with a small piece of wire, found directions from a Google search. I don't have them off the top of my head but I'll post back when I get home if somebody else hasn't already.

just ground the number 7 pin and turn the ingintion to on, but not to start. It is as simple as that. Do you have a paper clip a piece of wire 12" long? That all you need. No need to buy the gay reset tool for 80+ dollars.

This gay reset tool is about $60. And keep in mind that if you ground wrong pin , you gonna fu** up your system. Take your pick. I love DIYs, but some stuff has not to be done in a "Micky Mouse" way.

Just my oppinion, so no reason to flame it.
