Hi Bergen and welcome to JustAnswer,

Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...

Initially, try re-pressing the RESET button:

  • • no keys/ignition OFF;
  • • engine running.

All others would require the use of a volt/multi-meter.
