This can be done via the instrument cluster in your car (assuming you have changed the sensor, the sensors are single use).


there is a great video on it here:


text instructions:

Push start button twice with the foot off the back and clutch....when check control image disappears and all that is left is current time on the LCD panel of the instrument cluster, press and hold the odometer reset button. After a few seconds, a yellow icon will show up showing that you have service indicator light on. Push and hold the "BC" button of the turn signal stalk until it states "Reset?" let go of the button and push the button back in and hold, a little clock will come up, once the clock graphic besides the reset goes away let go. Turn the car off and resart as normal. The brake light service indicator has now been reset.


Please let me know if you have further questions. Please press ACCEPT if satisfied so that I am compensated for my time and effort. I am not compensated until you press accept.
