Hi there! It is normally done with the dealer scan tool. It can be done manually however, here is the procedure. Be sure to follow all the steps and to warm up the engine to full operating temp prior to doing this. Also, use a clock or watch with a second hand because the timing has to be perfect. Hope this helps!

b. Turn ignition switch 'ON' and wait at least 2 seconds.
