I just used a piece of wire, unlike what this site has you use...
"With the ignition switch at (position two) and the engine not running, grounding pin seven (7) of the diagnostic connector for approximately three (3) seconds will reset the oil service lights. Grounding pin seven (7) for approximately twelve (12) seconds will do an inspection service reset."

unless you ground the wrong pin, there is absolutely nothing you can do wrong ... it might not reset on your first try if you don't time it right, but thats about it.
still, do at your own risk. we cant be responsible.
