The original procedure I have is for the vehicles with the BC button on the stalk. By VIN it looks like you have the earlier style reset.
Enter vehicle, close the door and buckle the seat belt.
Insert key but do not turn.
Press and hold the instrument cluster button above the steering wheel (should be the button on the right in the cluster).
Turn the key to the first position (the accessory lights should come on). Note that the key as 3 positions possible. One turn is accessory, the second is key on (terminal 15) and the third is when held in start position.
You should see "reset" come up on the display after holding for a short time.
Let go of the button and then press and hold again. The "reset" should flash.
At this point you do one quick press to finalize the reset.
Let me know if you have any problems. After resetting please leave positive feedback. Thank you.
