There's a diagnostic tool you can buy for 50 or 60 bucks that will allow you to do it OR if you have a laptop you can download software called carsoft for free and buy a OBD cable to run from the laptop to the OBD port for 10 bucks. This is assuming you're talking about the oil service lights etc. if you're talking about your check engine light any autozone or advance auto parts will reset it for you for free. Good luck.


YO, thanks man. But thing is i live in Mauritius and i don't think that am gona get the cable here. If i get it, i'll be like 5 times more expensive. Thanks for tip man. Regards.
