Think its
Insert the key into the ignition.
Press the "Start/Stop" button. Wait for the service reminder lights to turn on and off.
Press and hold the trip odometer "Reset" button.
Release the "Reset" button when the service menu appears.
Press the "Menu" button on the end of the turn signal arm to move through the menu until the service reset option is highlighted.
Press and hold the "Reset" button until the service light resets.
