Did you run your battery down, while playing with INPA? I think that there is a minimum starting voltage required. When playing with INPA or DIS, use a charger or let the motor run!

Good Luck!

put the key in to the ignition do not i repeat do not push the start button,just put the key in to the ignition then hold the speedometer button for like 10 to 15

seconds then you should get that menu in the speedo display,push one time to scrolldown(repeat it ) to the part you want to reset

hold the button a few seconds to select and adjust/reset it

but you'll need to unlock the car first scrolldown till you'll see unlock option.

look at your VIN number the last 6 numbers let's say 42645 then it's 4+2+6+4+5=21
so your unlock code is 21

Type that in hold the button again a few seconds until it the text dissapears then your car is unlocked then you can do the ram reset.

Because time and date are resetted you might get service errors set time and date right and
they are gone,good luck i'll post a video if it doesn't work let me know.

Also you'll have to unlock it every time if you want to adjust something in that menu,also the car will shot down a second if you do the reset don't panic

You can check your fuel pump in inpa to see if its dead. Go to safety modules then satellite b pillar right then activate then fuel pump and check to see if voltage and rpm is in range that is shown on the screen when you run test. Should be more than 10v and 2000 rpm I believe. Good luck

Looks like you may have to resync your car. I had to do it after I changed my fuel pump. If I remember correctly I went to cas module in inpa and went to activate I think. There is an option to resync your dme with cas which get rid of alot of issues that kill spark.
