I need to fix windows regulators on my car, and it's covered under certified warranty, but i had tune-up done some place else, and mechanic couldn't reset the computer indicating milage for the next tune-up. Will the dealership tell me that i can't use warranty anymore?

No, UNLESS there is a clause is your warranty that states you must get the work completed there. Read your papers first, then figure out what you need to do. You can also simply purchase a "reset" tool from www.bavauto.com or some other places, so you can do it yourself.

If your OBC needs to be reset after completing your oil change, there are two ways. NOTE: If you miss a step, just turn the key back off and try again:

A. Model Year 1999 to Mid-2000: You should have the older round 20-pin DLC connector under your hood behind the battery terminal, you need to use a small length of wire to connect (short) pins 7 and 19 for 3-5 seconds with the ignition key in position 1 (Accessory).

B. After Mid-2000: You should not have the 20-pin DLC connector. You only need to hold the left odometer reset button while turning the key to position 1 (Accessory). Keep holding the button for 5 or so seconds until any of the following shows in the display: OIL SERVICE or INSPECTION with RESET or RE. Release the button and press it again for another 5 or so seconds until RESET or RE flash. While the display flashes, press the button one more time briefly. If done correctly, END SIA should show up for a few seconds. All done.
