You can purchase a reset tool. Try the link noted above.

There is also a very cheap way of doing it, but I can't find the DIY.

Cheap (free!) and easy way to do it with a paperclip- works like a charm.

Thanks guys, brilliant. Also, can you tell me where my diagnostic plug is?? (Sorry, only had the car a week and haven't had chance to get a Haynes yet).

Lastly, it may be useful to add that in the past when I've done the DIY method of fault reading, i use some solder, it's more flexible than a paperclip and highly conductive so more likely to get a good contact and accurate reading.

Thanks again and location of plug would be much appreciated!

dont worry, read around this site and found exploded diagrams of each plug and what each pin is linked to (for both 15 and 20 pin plugs).

thanks everyone for all your help.

much appreciated and sure this site is going to save me lots of time and cash in the future!
