I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
I would suggest unhooking the car battery for an hour then trying again with this process: or
if it still won't reset you may have a defective sensor or it may not be connected properly (it is a very simple monitoring sensor)
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle
