here is a pic of the service port. put jumper wire between #19 and #7.
The service indicator lights are reset by connecting pin 7 to pin 19(ground). The proper way to do this is to have the ignition off and place a jumper wire between pins 7 and 19 (make sure you get the right pins!). Then turn the ignition switch to position 1 (accessory), when the service light goes out, turn the ignition off. The difference between resetting the oil service light and the inspection light is in the length of time you have the jumper in place with the ignition on. This means that if you are resetting the oil service light, you should turn off the ignition immediately after the light goes out. If you leave the jumper in too long with the ignition on, you will perform an inspection reset as well and the next service indicator will come up as an oil service rather than an inspection. make sure you get the right ports or you will have electrical problems
hey carguy13 i've been trying to find the site where i was reading about a guy who used the wrong ports to reset his oil service but can't find it. i do remember that he would have random interior lights coming on and buzzers going off. i'll keep looking and post it when i find it
Guys, please tell me it's not this complicated. I have to find a 20-pin connector, jump two specific pins with the ignition key on and be careful not to over extend the time that the ignition is on or the jump is in place? Is the 20-pin connector under the hood, making this a 2-person job? (What kind of engineering is this????)
It's really not that complicated.
Step 1 open your hood
Step 2 in screw cap to the 20 pin connector.
Step 3 take piece of electrical wire and have one spliced end in pin #7 and another in pin #19
Step 4 get in the car and put key in and turn key to position 1 when the car electronics first receive power
Step 5 the bottom of the cluster will show the oil meter for a few brief moments and it will then disappear. When that meter disappears is when u immediately power down the car completely and take the key out of the ignition.
Step 6 get out of the car and take the wire out of the 20 pin connector and close up the screw cap again **NOTE** it only goes on one way. Now go back inside and put the key in and place back in position one. You should notice that this time the oil meter should be all the way to the left and green telling you you did this correctly.
Step 7 wrap everything up because you have successfully reset the oil service light single handedly.
