Press and hold the left trip button in the instrument cluster.
Turn the ignition to the first positon (accessory).
Hold the trip button until the "reset" is shown, then let off, and immediately press and hold the button again until the "reset" starts to flash.
Let off the trip, and press it once more to reset.
I had this issue because I changed my oil and didn't know how to do the reset. This worked like a charm.......I had a problem at first because I didn't hold the trip-o meter until after turning the key to position 1 and so I came back and reread your comment about holding the button before turning to position 1 and it worked like a charm. Thanks
