Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

I have enclosed the factor reset procedure in the link below. Go back through it to make sure you following the correct steps. Copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view it. If the service reset cannot be done with the instrument cluster a factory compatible tool or special reset tool will be needed to reset the reminder.
