Husks,

To do it safely.. you can buy the reset tools on eBay.

I did it the unsafe way last time.. paper clip and strobing two connectors on the OBD plug for a period to make it go away. Mind you.. you can do serious damage this way.. so go ebay!

I tried that too and it didn't seem to work either, my Peake tool should take care of that next time.

you should only see the 4 green squares when you reset the service indicator, right?
